to the girl with swallowed tears and hidden scars:
when you’ve given all you can give
and you’re left dried up like a rain puddle in the summer sun,
God will restore you with His love.
He will hydrate you with His grace,
and His mercy will replenish your soul.
to the boy who is more familiar with beatings and curses
than hugs and ‘i love you’s:
when you feel as if there isn’t anyone
who cares about you
and your soul is crushed
with the weight of loneliness
and broken promises,
listen to me.
God is enthralled by every intricate detail of your life.
He desperately longs to know you
and to listen to you;
to keep you safe
and to love you
because our Father can’t get enough of His children.
to anyone who has ever felt afraid,
to anyone who has ever felt small,
and to anyone who has ever felt like they couldn’t take another step
or breathe another breath:
God. Loves. You.
to anyone who has ever been broken: God can (and will) mend you. (via sanctifymyheart)
