For The Girl Who Feels Like She's Been Forgotten

Blog Pic 3.jpg

before I formed you in the womb I knew you,

before you were born I set you apart;

before you saw the light of day; I had holy plans for you: 

I have appointed you 

I have called you by name

my Spirit is on you, because I have anointed you to proclaim good news. I have sent you to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release prisoners from the darkness.  

I am reckless, and irresponsible in my pursuit of you. I will leave the ninety-nine behind to go after you, the one, who has wandered off. No matter how far you’ve gone. I will always go after you.

I am with you. always.

if you have not heard from me, just hold onto the last promise I whispered to you. be confident in this, that I who began a good work in you, will continue it on to completion.

I will always finish what I start.

when you feel like you’re slipping, I will support you. when doubts fill your mind, I will draw near and bring you comfort.

my daughter, be strong. take courage. don’t be intimidated. don’t give them a second thought because I, your God, am striding ahead of you. I am right here with you. I will not let you down; I will not leave you.

Rise, because if I am for you - fighting for you + with you - what can’t you overcome?
