For the words you didn’t hear today.
For the pain you feel too often.
For the hate that pulls you down.
For the esteem you lack.
For the beauty you don’t see.
For the loveless words that pierced your heart.
For the strength it takes just to live on.
For the lies that broke you.
For the tears that roll down your face.
For emptiness the world leaves behind.
For when you’ve been told otherwise.
You are loved. God loves you.
He sees the pain in your eyes.
The fake smile you put on does not fool Him.
He knows what it is like to feel unloved.
He felt unthinkable pain on the cross.
The world hates Him.
He knows the doubt that fills your mind.
He sees the true beauty within your heart.
He proclaims His love for you.
He knows the fatigue and tire life brings.
The world blasphemes Him everyday.
He catches every tear you cry.
He can fill the emptiness in the void of your soul.
He hears what the world tells you, and He says otherwise; He says, “You are loved.”
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39
