Your presence is never-ending,
Impossible to ignore the message you’re sending.
I look into you for personal feedback
The results have me feeling like a speedbag.
Right cross; then the left jab.
I’m at a loss; feeling drab.
Tears well up and roll down
Nothing will remove this frown.
Tear-stained cheeks, fists clenched
Feels like my heart’s been wrenched
I turn away and leave you there,
Need to remove myself from your glare.
Your message has been heard crystal clear,
But I refuse to listen to a glassy mirror!
Lies straight from the mouth of Satan,
“Justin, you’re worthless and hated.”
But I’m in search of something uplifting
Through God’s Scriptures; I’m sifting.
There it is, the truth has been found.
Thankfully; a much more beautiful sound.
Read 1 Samuel 16:7,
And you’ll see the message from Heaven.
I’m worth more than my oversized frame,
No reason to hide myself in shame.
God looks deep into my heart,
I think I’ll treasure that as a start…
I’m not quite sure why I’m sharing this…but perhaps by the Grace of God, this can be used to encourage someone else. You’re certainly NOT the only one strugging with self-image issues or a lack of confidence. But everytime things start to hurt. We must remember that we can rest in the perfect love of the Cross. God only sees the heart 🙂
