wanted!

A special type of post this morning. I wanted to share this song and the lyrics with you all this morning. Whether you believe in God or not, everyone was made for a special purpose and indeed every day you are wanted!
The song is Wanted by Dara Maclean
From the day you were born 
And took your first breath 
You opened your eyes and in came the light 
He was watching you 
But all of your life you couldn't shake the lies in your head 
Saying you're a mistake 
Oh but you were made 
By a God who knows your name 
He doesn't make mistakes 

You are wanted 
To every broken heart, He stands with open arms 
You are wanted 
To every searching soul, look to the rising sun 
If you're lonely, hurting, gone too far 
To the outcast you come as you are 
For you, you are wanted, you, you are wanted 
You, you are wanted, you, you are wanted 

Let this be the day that joy takes the place 
Of all of the years that shame tried to steal away 
He is calling you 
Lift your eyes to see His face 
Come run into the arms of grace 

You, you have been marked 
You're set apart 
And He calls you His 
So you don't have to search 
Don't have to look for where you belong 

You are wanted

This is such a beautiful song! I'm so glad that you shared, it is something I needed to remember. Sometimes it's so easy to go about day to day and forget that we are deeply wanted and desired by God, we aren't alone, He is always there :)
