Youth Just Need Somebody To Talk To

Occasionally a teen will talk to me about a difficult experience that they have had and how they got through them.  This week I had a young person tell me about how the song: "Someone To Talk To" by This Providence did just that.  I've included the song and the lyrics below, but what is more cool is what this teen told me about the song. When they were listening to this song they knew, "that even though everything of mine was thrown away and that I am lonely, I can still rely on God to love me, even when I feel like no one else does."  This is from a kid that doesn't go to church.  God knows that teens need someone to talk to and he will you whatever means he can to be that person.  Sometimes through a youth worker, sometimes through a bible, sometimes through a a music video like this.  How has he communicate to you?    I need somebody to talk to
But I pushed you away
I need somebody who understands
But it doesn't look like you're coming back

My sins caught up to you
I said my sins caught up to you
I lost the best love that I've ever known
And it doesn't look like you're coming home

Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
You came through

I hate, hate, hate this place
I said I hate, hate, hate this place
But your attraction is still and cold
But I can feel the warmth of your grace
Yeah, I can feel the warmth of your grace

Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
You came through
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
You came through

I believe in miracles
I believe in miracles
I believe in miracles
Yeah, I believe
(I believe in miracles)
I believe
(I believe in miracles)
I believe
(I believe in miracles)

Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
You came through, yeah
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
You came through

Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
Even after all my mistakes
You were true
