Dear survivor, do you know that I love you oh so very much? Do you know that you are beautiful? Do you know that you are intelligent? Do you know that you are not your past mistakes? Do you know that you are more valuable than precious jewels and rubies?
Life will sometimes be extremely difficult. There will be times when you will see others go through things that you believe are unfair. There will be times when you will get dealt an unfair hand. Everyone will not love you, although you are one of the most loving people anyone can meet. You do not judge anyone or their circumstances and you treat everyone with respect and of value.
Your world has been turned upside down before. People closest to you have broken your heart and what did you choose to do? You chose to forgive those people. Why? You know that those people are in need of the love that only God can provide. You know that those people are lost in a sinful word and that all they know how to do is hurt others, because they have not stepped into the fullness of living for God and God only.
You used to allow those people to hurt you, but then the love of God always reminded you that his love is sufficient and overshadows all negativity.
My Love Letter to Life
John 14:27 - Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Butterflies is what he gave me and continues to give me since we called ourselves official.
There’s not one who’s ever made me feel the way he does.
I finally felt like I found true love.
But then what we have gets hit with a blow.
Getting myself together, while working to pick up the pieces.
I see that this man really needs me.
But not only does he need me, I need him.
It’s something about the way he speaks that taps into my spirit realm.
I’ve never felt this love for a man.
We both tried walking away from eachother.
Even when we are apart we are still connected.
I know it doesn’t make sense to me either.
How can someone love me just as much as I love them?
All I’ve ever experienced is verbal abuse and disloyalty.
How can something so special be challenged?
Thinking back I remember this page in my bible.
It speaks of a rainbow at the end of the storm.
Sometimes there is turbulence before the calm.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
