"You Are Loved" is a song by Christian pop and rock artist Rebecca St. James. The song expresses St. James' desire to tell her childhood friend about God's amazing love. She explained: "It's written about a childhood friend of mine that I grew up with in Sydney. I fell out of contact with him after leaving our Christian school to move to a different state. I ran into a mutual friend years later and asked how our friend, Daniel, was doing. This friend told me that Daniel had really fallen away from God and that he'd been abusing drugs as well. As I was thinking about what I wanted to write about on this album, he very randomly came to mind—and I felt that this 'random' thought was actually placed there by God. I had the concept… 'If I had one chance to tell Daniel something, what would I say to him?' The message I felt God really laid on my heart was to tell him…'You are loved.'" [1]
