"You've got great plans for me"

This song came on to one of my Pandora stations recently and I have come to absolutely love it. The lyrics help me feel a little bit better about just being me, imperfections and all.

"At twenty years of age I'm still looking for a dream
A war's already waged for my destiny
But You've already won the battle
And You've got great plans for me
Though I can't always see

'Cause I got a couple dents in my fender
Got a couple rips in my jeans
Try to fit the pieces together
But perfection is my enemy
On my own I'm so clumsy
But on Your shoulders I can see 
I'm free to be me.

Sometimes I believe that I can do anything 
Yet other times I think I've got nothing good to bring
But You look at my heart and You tell me
That I've got all You seek
And it's easy to believe."
--Francesca Battistelli
