Truth #4: You are Loved

file000209501722

Their words hit the mark.

In my mind I heard the age old taunt:
Sticks and stones…

There are no broken bones,
But the scars are much worse

My “friends” surround me like a pack of wolves,
Eager for my despair.
My ruin.

In that moment I know I am nothing.

Have you been here?

I have looked in the mirror and seen ugly.
Walked down the crowded hallway in a robe of loneliness.

And just when I thought that my worth hinged on the words others spoke,
there was this:

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (1 John 3:1)

Me.
A Child of a King.
Adopted and loved inspite of all of my scars.
Knowing who I was he still chose…me.

And suddenly I am
Beautiful,
Befriended.

Beloved.

You are loved, my friend.
You are loved.

We have all felt alone and unloved. I’d love for you to share a moment when the love of God was so real to you. Leave a comment below for me. πŸ™‚

    1. So true, Lisa! You know, that was a hard thing for me to swallow as a new Christian. Adopted didn’t have the positive implications (for me) as it did for others. Now, I can fully understand that His love for me was so great that He wanted to take me into His family. Amazing! Sounds like another whole blog post. πŸ˜‰
