To My Precious Friend

To my precious friend,

Where are you going? You seem to often hide.
Do you not see what is clearly right in front of you?
You are loved.

With fear in your eyes you hold tightly to the pain.
I wish that you would give it away.
You are loved.

I’m sorry for what happened.
Scares engraved by painful memories.
Yet I hope you still know; you are loved.

Don’t be ashamed. We all make mistakes.
He didn’t come for those who are perfect.
You are loved.
Stop blaming yourself. The hate sears your heart.
It doesn’t matter what you did.
You are loved.

It wasn’t meant to be this way.
He died to give you new life.
You are loved.

Embrace the truth.
Let it fill your heart.
You are loved.

Ephesians 3:16-19
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
