The thing that bothers me the most was how I was raised in the Preachers house.
I was raised up in the church and no doubt every time the doors were open, I was there, whether I liked it or not. It was there that I learned about God. It seems I got the part about what He did not like. I got the part about Him watching over everything. I mostly got the part about what happens when God got mad.
My grandmother would always remind me that even though she could not see everywhere, God was watching and it would not go well with me if He sees me do something God did not approve of. I suppose it was like God was the boogeyman…and so that was to keep me straight.
Later when my children were growing up, I would take them to the mirror and tell them, “Your biggest problem in life will be the the man in the mirror”. That guy will give you more trouble that all the others combined. That guy will beat you to death if you let him…
Recently Adina Bowman wrote a song “When you look at Me”. The very first time I heard the song It changed my thinking.
This song tells me that God is not the boogeyman and even though I don’t like myself, God still sees His creation and loves it..
Everyone who raised me and taught me about God did what they thought was right. I appreciate their dedication to a task that was no doubt very hard as I was growing up..
I am singing this song to give the message balance. I am singing this song to the person who might be having a hard time because life has thrown them a curve ball.
I am singing this song because I want to remind you of what God must see, when He looks at me…
