Time to share some free verse poetry because I haven’t yet! God’s pouring words out and I feel like I just really need to write…those reading I hope this touches you somehow…enjoy.
And there you where.Perfectly created. Tiny hands, little feet. Eyes as bright as the sun. Laying in your mothers arms created in Gods image and sent from Heaven and He looked at you and said “It’s good.”
There you where. Just starting to walk. Grabbing cushion after cushion tying to keep your balance. You fall, but get right back up again. And God saw you there wobbly and said, “It’s good.”
There you where sitting in class trying your hardest to sit still. There was so much going on outside you could hardly pay attention to the teacher. Instead of doing your work you wanted to go on an adventures and discover new and exciting things. You had so much you needed to do but you where always too focused on what you wanted to do..and still, God looked at you and said, “It’s good.”
There you where, looking into the mirror disgusted. You have heard so many times that you are beautiful. That your perfect just the way you are. But you don’t believe them so you skip a meal, or you get did of the meal you just ate. And STILL God looks down at his beautiful daughter and says, “It’s good.”
There you are. Filled with sooo many lies of this world. You lost control. You no longer have a say. You are sad and not sure why. You hold the ONLY piece of courage you can find and you let yourself know how special you really are. Gash after painless gash you don’t stop until you feel just enough to sleep. God, though extremely hurt to see you hurting looks down at you curled up crying and says, “She’s still good…”
There you where. You have had it. You can’t take the selfishness. You’ve heard all the lies. What’s even worse, you believe every single one of them. You plan, you say your goodbyes, and you are ready to be done..broken, ashamed, you breathe your last breath and call out to God one last time. “Are you there?! Do you not see your child hurting?!” God, with a tear in His eye whispers, “You are STILL good.”
And there He was. The Savior of the world. Remembering your tiny hands. Your little feet. Eyes as bright as the sun. Wobbling around learning how to walk. Falling down and getting right back up. He’s remembering His child looking into the mirror disgusted. Skipping countless meals. He remembers His child hurting herself because the world hasn’t punished her enough….
And there He was. Looking into your eyes as you take what you think is going to be your last breath and he cries. The Savior of the world is holding out His arms and whispers to you, “Your my daughter and I made you like me. Your breathtakingly beautiful inside and out. I. Am. Not. Finished. With. You. Yet.”
And…”You are still good.”

Guys….lets just be real here for a minute…because self confidence issues, slef-injury issues, depression, suicide, and so on are very VERY real in his earth.
I hurt for the people who get to that point. I know EXACTLY how people in that situation are feeling and I know how dark it can get because WAS that person. I know what it’s like to look into the mirror and be disgusted with yourself. I know what it’s like to have to hide the scars you created to punish yourself or have control. But get this!!! God has created you to be beautiful. You ARE beautiful. You where carefully knitted together in your mothers womb. The same God they created the world carefully thought you out. He knows every hair on your head. He hurts when you hurt..
I am not claiming to be holier then anyone by any means. I still struggle when I look into the mirror..sometimes I think the whole world is out to get me and no one cares about little ole me.. But I just really really want people to know that they aren’t alone. And if they feel like their world is caving in, God is holding your hand through it all. Give Him all your junk. He hung in the cross so that you are able to hang all your junk on Him. God hurts for you.
If I could leave you with one thing today it’s that God knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he created you. He knew he bumps you’d hit. He knew all the tears you’d cry even before they would fall. He loves you..and when the world seems against you..He will be there carrying you through it all.
If anyone needs to talk let me know..you are all beautiful people. I love you all.
