Selena Gomez said everything she has been through has made her a stronger believer in Jesus.
After releasing her new emotional track Lose You to Love Me, Gomez posted a lengthy introspective note on social media. She wrote, “I’m literally just laying down and thanking Jesus… Where my father has taken me and placing me is exactly where I am meant to be,l. He said to me ‘Selena hold on, I hurt when you hurt. I cry when you cry but I will NEVER, EVER leave your side. Work with me, walk with me and watch how I do it.’”
She added, “He always surprises me and I re-fall in love with Him every single time. In my worst moments, like awful, most painful moments -I never stopped falling to my knees wanting and needing only His love. See the enemy keeps trying to tear me down and it’s just not gonna happen. Not today. Not the next.”
Gomez is probably referring to her breakup with Justin Bieber, which she also refers to in her song. One lyric of the song says, “Set fire to my purpose and I let it burn / You got off in the hurtin’ when I wasn’t yours.”
Another lyric says, “In two months you replaced us like it was easy / Made me think I deserved it in the thick of healing.”
Gomez said of her new song, “This song was inspired by many things that have happened in my life since releasing my last album. I thought it was important to share the music, as I know many can relate to the fact that the road to self-discovery generally comes through the scars in one’s life.”
She added, “I want people to feel hope and to know you will come out the other side stronger and a better version of yourself.”
She also told her fans before the song’s release, “I feel like the next few choices that I’m gonna make are very crucial, so I’m trying to be really, really diligent and just patient with everything. The album is coming very soon.”
Gomez’s last album Revival topped the Billboard 100 charts.
