Are you tired of feeling inadequate and alone in your struggles? Have a look at Sarah Kroger's 'Belovedness,' a powerful ballad that reminds us of our worth as children of God.
Initially released on Kroger's sophomore album, 'Light,' during the peak of a global healthcare crisis, 'Belovedness' quickly found a following among those battling mental health challenges. The revisited live version, recorded in a barn-turned-studio in the UK countryside, offers a sweet, intimate take on the song, featuring Northern Irish singer-songwriter Nathan Jess on vocals.
Kroger wrote the song during a period of personal growth, as she discovered the truth of her identity through reading Henri Nouwen's 'Life of The Beloved.' The lyrics remind us to let go of our past mistakes and the lies we've been told, and to embrace the truth of our belovedness.
This song is not only for the Christian community, it is also for anyone struggling with their identity, looking for a message of healing and hope. 'Belovedness' is a safe place to land and unwind, as Kroger concludes, 'This is who we are, and it’s literally an instruction: be loved.' So take a listen and be reminded of the love and acceptance that awaits you in the arms of our Father.
