My Confession


I have been blind, unwilling to see
The true love you're giving.
I have ignored every blessing.
I'm on my knees confessing

I was originally going to do this post closer to Good Friday but then I changed my mind and decided to post this now. A while ago I remember hearing someone say that Josh Groban's song "My Confessions," besides being a love song, could be taken into a Catholic/Christian point of view. And last night as I was leaving Adoration parts of the song just started playing through my head and I knew that I wanted to try and write an analogy of sorts. So here is my attempt at that.

That I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am staggered by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart is turning,
Falling into place.
I can't hide it
Now hear my confession.

To me the song is about finding Christ again and telling him our confession and how, like at the beginning of the song, we have been blind and unwilling  the true love that he has been giving us. 

I have been wrong about you.
Thought I was strong without you.
For so long nothing could move me.
For so long nothing could change me.
Now I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am captured by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart is turning,
Falling into place.
I can't hide it
Now hear my confession.

In the third stanza I see it as that we are wrong about Christ though we think that we are strong without him, but anytime we come face to face with him we surrender ourselves to him.

You are the air that I breathe.
You're the ground beneath my feet.
When did I stop believing?

The the last line of the bridge, to me, is the question that, I feel, many people ask, because no one might not remember when they stopped believing.

Cause I feel myself surrender
Each time I see your face.
I am staggered by your beauty,
Your unassuming grace.
And I feel my heart
Falling into place.
I can't hide it
Now hear my confession.
I can't hide it
Now hear my confession.
Hear my confession
