Come and soothe my ache

Whisper to me “you’re not a mistake”

Am I a vacuum/a waste of space?

A place of disgrace

Or a home for your Grace

The lies chase me

Try to erase me (and)

Replace me with a counterfeit

In confusion I sit

I’m drowning in it

Fight and war for me

Against the enemies I can’t see

Who sneak from the deep

To steal and reap

And leave me alone to weep

Fill the emptiness

Calm my fear

Hold my sadness

Pull me near

“You’re an accident”

“A cosmic mistake”

“Taking up someone’s space”

“Just leave this place”

“Just leave this place”

Fill the emptiness

Calm my fear

Hold my sadness

Pull me near

“Hear My voice”

“I am here, I am closer than near”

“Make no mistake…you’re no mistake”

“Your heart is a place”

“…for me to live…and that’s no mistake”

These are lyrics I wish I could have written as a teenager to combat much of the confusion and “aloneness” I felt over being adopted.  I have to settle for writing them at 42.  I still have times where lies come and try to beat me down…and…I’m still learning to hear His voice that I am a “dwelling place for God” (both individually…and…as part of His Body).
