People who cut deeply . . .

Some know that I come from a home that is  not in love with Christ. Over the years, as I have turned my life to Him I have faced so much hurt and disappointment from those who say they love me. My family is harsh and critical. They suffer in their own sorrows because the Wisdom of God is far from their hearts. I cannot blame them for the hurt they continually throw onto me day after day. It is Satan who has taken them captive -- I only wish they would awake from their sleeping state and come to the One who has promised restoration to them. 

They hurt me.  
A cut deep in my heart. 
I am a disappointment. 
I am never right.
I don't do things the normal way. 
I am not what they expected.

But HE Loves me.
He says to me that I am perfect in every way.
He tells me that the paths that I walk are beautiful because
they are righteous and full of Wisdom.
He tells my heart of my reward when I live with Him in Heaven forever. 

And even though the scar is there and it has a dull ache.
I smile because Jesus fills my heart with Love. 
A love that conquers all hurt and shame and disappointment. 
HE  -  LOVES - me.  
He loves me. 

Psalm56:8   You've kept track of my every toss and turn
through the sleepless nights,
Each tear entered in your ledger,
each ache written in your book. 

2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? 3 Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death; 4 my enemy will say, "I have overcome him," and my foes will rejoice when I fall. 5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. 6 I will sing to the LORD, for he has been good to me. Psalm 13
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
