Love Has Come and Rescued

Tears, pain, fear, shame...

It's all the same.
I was broken in this misery of what I have called "life".
I feared rejection so much I rejected myself.
Scolded myself, scratched my arms and legs, even bled...
Pulled my hair, slapped myself, of how much I hated myself.
Looked in the mirror and couldn't stand the person looking back
So alone in an empty world and not a friend in sight.
How was I still alive?
Bullied and betrayed, every word felt like salt in my wounds.
Ugly and used, no more tears were left to cry.
Was this it? Was this really a so-called life?
Nightmares turned into reality.
Could this have gotten any worse?!
Poverty stroke, no where to sleep. Nothing to eat.
Thought this was the end...

One day, one beautiful day, I met a stranger.
He seemed to notice me... Me... the one whom everyone despised...
I was dirty, starving, homeless...
He came up to me and gave me a hug.
He fed me, clothed me, and loved me.
Never felt such a warmth in my heart.
He cleaned me up and took me in when no one wanted me!
Oh, how great is this mans love!
He gave me a home, he gave me a bed
There's so much food to eat, come and eat with me!
He showed me freedom, the spirit of truth, there is liberty!
He clothes me with beauty and strength
He shined his light in me, there's no more darkness
No more fear, because of this man's love for me!
No more emptiness, I have found what I have been looking for.
I finally feel... complete.

It's been 2 years since that day...
I am now married to that man and forever will be.
Eternally grateful for what he did for me.
And the best part, He loves you too.
And what He did for me, He wants to do for you
He is the love of my life.
His name is Jesus Christ ✝
