You Are Loved by Ellie Holcomb

You Are Loved, a song that reflects Psalm 34:5 and Romans 5:8 – written by: Ellie Holcomb, Christa Wells, and Nicole Witt
Sung by Ellie Holcomb on her album Red Sea Road.

Some days you’re tired of trying to measure up
You see a girl who’s not enough
When you look in the mirror
Some nights all you want to do is hide
Cause every time you look inside
You’re face to face with failure
But you are loved, not because of what you’ve done
Even when your heart has run the other way
Nothing’s gonna change His love
And you are wanted, not because you are perfect
I know that you don’t think you’re worth that kind of grace
But look into His face, you’ll know
That you are loved
You’ve searched for something that will stir your soul
That will make you feel less alone
But nothing ever saves you
He knew before you ever took a breath
There’d be days when you’d forget
How beautiful He made you
That Jesus, He chose you
He sees you,
He knows you, ohhhh
You’re covered, forever
Beloved Daughter
Look into His face, you’ll see it there
Look into His face, you’ll know
That you are loved

Holy Ground by Christa Wells

Holy Ground is a track from Velveteen, an album by Christa Wells.
You can read a little bit about Christa at this interview posted at CCM online.
“The songs that come most naturally can’t be covered by mainstream artists very well. It became important to me that these songs be heard, even if just by a small handful of people. I’ve never been a “go big or go home” kind of person. I’ve just been about doing the work, and if it matters to a few people then it’s worth it.”

Hatteras by Christa Wells

Hatteras is a very small waterside town in North Carolina.
Christa Wells sings about the feelings being there evokes.
The Gold Coast doesn’t really qualify, but sitting in a very large, quiet house with only one other person, I can understand where she’s coming from.
