Inspiration For Today – June 20

The moment you feel like giving up, remember all the reasons you held on for so long.

The inspiration for today, June 20, comes from Francesca Battistelli and the song Free To Be Me.

Is perfectionism holding you back or causing anxiety in your home? I hope you can feel the freedom to just be you and let your kids just be kids. No one is perfect and sometimes trying to be perfect can cause us so much stress that we just want to give up. Don’t give up. Be free to just be you.

Inspirational Quote For Today – Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will direct your paths.

Story Behind The Song – Free To Be Me by Francesca Battistelli

Free To Be Me Lyrics

At twenty years of age
I’m still looking for a dream
A war’s already waged for my destiny
But You’ve already won the battle
And You’ve got great plans for me
Though I can’t always see

‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I’m so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I’m free to be me

When I was just a girl
I thought I had it figured out
See my life would turn out right
And I’d make it here somehow
But things don’t always come that easy
And sometimes I would doubt, oh

‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I’m so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I’m free to be me and You’re free to be You

Sometimes I believe that I can do anything
Yet other times I think
I’ve got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I’ve got all You seek, oh
And it’s easy to believe even though

‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I’m so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see

I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
And on my own, I’m so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see
I’m free to be me and You’re free to be You
