He calls me beloved
He calls me the apple of his Eyes
He calls me different, beautiful, unique and wonderful
I know He means every word He says
But my mind can’t grasp it
I do not understand the depth or the width of His love
Instead I doubt
And I start to question myself
Are these words really true?
Or are they just a joke?
Are these words from his heart?
Or ordinary words from His mouth?
I look into the mirror
And try my best
To see myself how he sees me
I look for the beauty in the image that stares back at me
I look to others to confirm all He has called me
But then I hear the voice of the world
Over and over again
They call me ugly
They call me stupid
They call me worthless
At this point, I don’t know what to believe
I don’t know which is actually true
I’m left with this question
The search for my identity
Am I who he calls me?
Or am I who they call me?
Thank you very much Michelle, I am sure we all have asked these questions or felt this way at some point, but God is Love and His words are tested and sure …
So I hope we always remember, that no matter how we feel, whatever life throws at us, or what the world says, that God loves Us forever.
