David sends his message :
Even with the pimples on my face you keep Lovin’ Me” – Jonathan McReynolds
“Lovin’ Me” by Jonathan McReynolds
“I’m supposed to be asleep. Maybe jet lag has gotten the best of me. I also just have a lot on my mind and this happens every now and then where I just need to get through what feels like mental muck. It can be a few weeks or even over a month. But tonight what I felt like singing was this felt like singing was this @jonmcreynolds song, #lovinme. Songs and talks (aka sermons) bring me peace even when it’s so easy to look at my flaws and seep into the internal cold and cave-like climate that sometimes feels like is on the inside. I don’t normally post so much about it but I just need to get it out of my system and know I’m not just dwelling in silence like it’s not nothing. But I will say I’ve been in these down and dumpy mindsets before many times and I just need to remind myself that I got through it. I know this time will be the same, even though I don’t feel it right now. And instead of figuring out why I feel like it I’ve learned there isn’t always a specific why. Sometimes we just have to deal with it, keep fighting forward, and then we suddenly feel like “oh… I feel better now.” If any of you have felt down and in the dumps I just hope you know you’re not alone. And when you feel like “less of a person compared to everyone else.” He, our Heavenly Father, keeps loving us even when we don’t feel anyone could, would or should. Keep hanging in there. I feel better after singing this. I hope it helps anyone feeling the same way feel better too. Sorry for being all moody, (and I always write or say way more than necessary) but I can’t always show my happy days. I’m not perfect but overall I can say I’m happy even with these days that come and go. #latenightthoughts #lovingme #cover #coversong ”
Uuh-oh .. David is feeling moody again. In the pits too, he sounds like.
I’m impressed with his use of words though: like mental muck .. internal cold .. cave-like climate .. I could use some of them next time I write my novels 😀
David’s words improvement must owe to the constant writing of lyrics. In a way, I’m quietly (not so quiet now) celebrating for this wunderbar musician. He is storing so much sensitivities inside. He needs an outlet to release them. What better way than to direct them into music and lyrics. Forgive me if I’m wrong .. but I think David needs to have occasional moods of dumps .. melancholy .. high spirits and low spirits .. even tantrums .. to give out his most spectacular potential in his music writing.
Look at PARALYZED – it’s his finest song-writing yet. And what a MOOD that is!! David would do well if he sinks into his God-forgiven sensitivities and belt out from there whatever that is deep inside.
