The Song I Love Right Now That Always Makes Me Cry

The first time I heard this song in the car I cried. I still get tears in my eyes every time I hear it; it just resonates with me THAT much. Kind of embarrassing, because when I looked up the story/meaning behind it I found out that he had written it for his 13-year-old daughter. But he goes on to say that his wife said that she hopes he realized that what he was writing to his daughter is the same thing she tells him all the time when he’s being way too hard on himself.

I’m a longtime fan of Andrew Peterson, but this song gets me like no other in that rare way where it feels like whatever you’re hearing or reading was spoken or written or sung directly for and to YOU.

I love you just the way that you are
I love the way He made your precious heart

Be kind to yourself
Be kind to yourself

I know it’s hard to hear it when that anger in your spirit
Is pointed like an arrow at your chest
When the voices in your mind are anything but kind
And you can’t believe your Father knows best.

[A.P.]
