So I just moved into college for the semester and it has been a rough day saying goodbye to my mom. As I was laying in bed, I remembered that some time ago I wrote a poem when I felt unloved and unwanted by the people around me. 

Even though I have bitterness inside my heart,
He loves me.
Even though I get angry at people who hurt me,
He forgives me.
Even when I get grumpy when things don’t go my way,
He comforts me.
Even though my skin isn’t flawless & my hair is messy,
He calls me beautiful.
Even though I try to plan my own path,
He plans a better one for me.
Even though I’m impatient,
He’s patient with me.
Even though I run away from Him,
He runs towards me.
Even though I don’t wait for Him,
He waits for me.
Even though I’m like a baby taking my first steps & I fall,
He still says with arms wide open, “come to me.”
Even though I feel alone and abandoned,
He stays with me.
Even when no one wants to be seen with me,
He wants to show me off.
Even though I can get bored in church,
He never gets bored with me.
Even though I chase after others,
He chases after me.
Even though I’m a sinner,
He loves me.

I shared this with all of you because I want you all to know just how much God loves you and wants you to feel wanted. Whoever is feeling lonely and unloved tonight, you are not alone.

God bless,

M.A.
