You Matter

“It makes no difference who you are or where you’re from- if you want God and are ready to do as He says, the door is open.” Acts 10:35

You matter to God. You are precious in His sight and He stands patiently at the door of your heart and knocks. It’s never too late to discover the purpose that God has for your life. He says that He knows the plans that He has for you. They aren’t plans to hurt you or cause you shame. No way! God’s plans are to give you a hope and future. He loves you and though He doesn’t promise to grant us an easy life, He gives us the promise of His presence. He says that He will never ever leave you. Can you think of anyone in this life who can make good on a promise like that? On the journey of life we encounter so many struggles, ups and downs but if we lean on the Lord instead of our own understanding, those trials can actually make us strong. God specializes in taking the ugly, the ripped apart and torn into shreds and molding into something beautiful. He comes to give us life so we don’t have to live a life of misery. We don’t have to hang our heads in shame. He sees something in us that no one else can see. He is able to see past all of the bad decisions that we’ve made and all the people who have hurt us and let us down. He sees past the spirit of hopelessness and despair. He never ever ever ever gives up on us. His love for us is relentless. He just needs us to be willing to accept His love, to follow Him and never look back. He loves you and He stands at the door of your heart patiently waiting.

Dear Sister

Healing words of Faith and Hope

Dear Sister,

I just wanted you to know that you are loved.  You are special and your value is far more than fancy clothes, expensive jewelry, monetary gain and/or status.  You are sought after by the one whose very essence is love.  You are beautiful and you are precious.  No matter how far off track you may feel or how much you hate the sight of your own visage there is someone who is greater who looks at you with love.  There is someone who sees the beauty in spite of the pain and someone whose love is never ending.  There is someone whose love will never hurt you, never abandon you and never leave you out. There is someone who is always rooting for you, always hoping the best and waiting for you. This someone will never give up on you and will always believe in you.  Dearest sister…

Love? Life?

I loved really hard once.  But that love betrayed me, slayed me and left me penniless and forgotten in a dense well of sorrow and grief.  Another love I found and swore I’d never lose it. So I gave myself away completely, denied my inner thoughts and ultimately forgot my own name. I hated myself but couldn’t let go. I needed that love, to be held in that love, cradled and squeezed until…I couldn’t breathe. Tried to let go but life was ripped away from me. Had my chance at love but forfeited my opportunity to live. –Cheylly Purch
