I Gave You All I Had, and You Tossed It in the Trash...

Sadness Comments

..Recognize those words? You may or may not, but just FYI, they are some of the lyrics from a popular secular song called "Grenade," by Bruno Mars. Basically, I believe it is about a guy who claims his girlfriend would never do anything for him, though he would "catch a grenade for her, jump in front of a train for her, put his head on the blade for her.." etc., etc., etc.

Yeah. Kind of pointless--I mean, isn't the guy supposed to be the brave knight in shining armor, anyways? ;) And what in the world is he even doing with a girl that apparently doesn't love him back?


..Hehe. Yeah. You're probably wondering why I'm even posting about a song I don't get and think is rather silly. Well, this post isn't really about the song, though the song did inspire me. You see, I hear it all the time in the stores, and, as it is a catchy and simple tune, it likes to pop into my head at times. :/ Especially one line--the one you read in this post's title:

I gave you all I had, and you tossed it in the trash,
You tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash...

..I got to thinking about that line, and what it meant. How true it rings for so many teens today. I mean, listening to those words, instead of picturing a guy mad at his girlfriend for being unloving, I see a girl, sitting all alone...exactly like the above picture. ^^ Staring out the window, her heart torn in two. Just a few days ago she thought she was loved, she thought this guy loved her, so she gave him everything. Her whole heart, her emotions, her body.

And now, just like the wind, he's gone--and all she has is her broken heart.

I gave you all I had, and you tossed it in the trash...

Yeah, I can make myself cry if I think about this too long. Because I know that this is exactly what has happened to so many girls out there--they want to "go with the flow," do it all, have it all, "be in love" with this guy...but then, all too soon, it's gone. And they're left with nothing but harsh memories. Not saying this is always the case, but I just started thinking about how often it is the case with today's world--in a time of "summer boyfriends," and "winter boyfriends," and ten-year-old first kisses.

Seriously, people, is this what we really want? What is going on with this earth?

It's more than sad. We should be crying for our world. And more than that, praying.

I gave you all I had, and you tossed it in the trash..

Don't be one of them, friends. Don't be the girl sitting at the window, whispering these words as the rain pours down. Don't give everything you have away, until you're certain it won't be tossed in the trash. Keep hold of your heart firmly, and stay safe in His arms.


I know this is sort of a serious post, but I had this on my heart and wanted to share. Bear with me. Love y'all!


  1. I completely agree, dear Miss Lucia!

    And then, once the girl has found true love again, she can't give her husband her whole heart, body, emotions, but only a bit of it. :( I definitely could cry thinking about it too makes me sick, angry, and very very sad.

    Blessings to you who is going against the tide!
    Love in Christ,
    P.S. Although I am a bit behind on my letter writing, do you want me to write first?

  2. Good post, Lucia, on a topic that needs to be talked about.

  3. This is so sad - yet so true! True love, not physical or emotional love is so rare these days. We are so blessed to know the truth about love and to be willing to follow God's plan for our lives, marriage, and all relationships! Thanks for an inspiring post, Lucia Marie!

    Blessings in Christ,
    Holly Lou

  4. I agree! That was very interesting on what you said.

    Thanks for posting this. :)

  5. Great post with a great point, and rather sad, too. It's sad because of the fact that lots of girls give themselves away--just to be "tossed in the trash". Hopefully, more girls will soon realize that true love can only be found in Christ. He never tosses anyone away.

  6. Um...yeah!!!! Seriously, how often does it happen? WAY too often!Funny how the "cool" secular songs can be used to counter themselves.

  7. I completely agree! SO many girls give themselves always and for what? Why would they do that? I'm committed to wait for the "one" no matter WHAT everyone thinks of me!

    Wonderful post my dear!

    P.S. I know that song by Bruno Mars and it's a great example for your post!(used to listen to a pop radio for like 5 months till I stopped, so I know "who's" "who")

  9. Bravo! That is an excellent post/subject, and it's sad to think that so many people don't realize the importance in “Saving” yourself for only One, ultimately Yah.
    I know that song, and I think it's ironic because I think it came out right after he did the song "Just the way you are" which would make since why he felt so bad in "Grenade" but again I don’t know that for sure.

  10. I agree 100%! Thank you darling for a lovely post. ;)


  11. I totally agree.
    But I still love that song!!! Hahahah!!
