Dearest me,

  • You are wonderful.
  • You are smart.
  • You are kind.
  • You are worthy.
  • You are fearless.
  • You are beautiful inside and out.
  • You are capable.
  • You make good decisions.
  • You have a wonderful life, and it’s still blossoming.
  • You are chosen.
  • You are worth more than any precious thing.
  • Your life has value.
  • You were thought of before the earth was created.
  • You were worthy enough for salvation.
  • You are loved.
  • You are wanted.

I know you’re feeling like none of those things are true, but know these things are truth. Yes, you have flaws, but everyone does. and you won’t be perfect until jesus takes you home.

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

Philippians 1:6

I know you’re struggling with things, but you’ll find your way. Be patient with yourself, you’ll get there. He walks with you, he has you by the hand–guiding you.

Regardless of what earthly voices may say, even if those voices are in your own mind. The one, heavenly voice should be the one that you listen to. They don’t know your heart like Jesus does. They didn’t create you, and haven’t been with you since you were but an idea in the mind of God when He chose to create you.

You’re doing the best you can right now, and Jesus sees you. You have come very far, and because of the fire Jesus has set inside of you, you’ll continue to move forward and up. It’s hard I know, but things will change, you will get better. When you feel like no one understands, your Jesus understands. Your Heavenly Father understands; and with your broken heart, He draws near to you. He’s right there. He’s never left, and He never will.

In His Service, Yourself.
