Words have hurt me, but God still loves me.
Man has beaten me, yet God still loves me.
I starved my body, and God still loves me.
I lay here dying, praying for him to take me, yet God still loves me.
I injured myself intentionally and God still loves me.
I poisoned my body with drugs and alcohol but God still loves me.
I have said hurtful, horrible things to people and somehow God still loves me.
My thoughts aren’t always pure, my heart’s not always clean, I am far from perfect, but God still manages to love me.
Now I sit here broken, scared, fearful and unsure about my future, yet I’m not alone, because God still loves me…
Today I pray for those who feel alone, forgotten, unwanted and unloved by you.
Someone told them, you would leave them, that you wouldn’t love them, and that you would judge them, for being themselves, and that is a lie.
Yet lies sink into our soul and become embedded in our hearts and we believe lies even when we shouldn’t.
Lord, you have never left me, in all the pain, the hurt, the agony of life, you have always been there waiting for me to call your name and when I called, you brought me another miracle.
So I pray for those who need you and who are afraid to cry out because they are afraid you will abandon them.
I pray you bring them peace, comfort and miracles Lord.
No one should ever cry alone and with you we don’t have to.
It’s in your precious name I pray. Amen
