My story is so messy, so much darkness along the way.

Places I’ve been that I never dreamed life would take me.

Dark places and thoughts still linger in my memories.

Yet somehow Jesus saw me there, still loved me there.

He didn’t condemn me nor turn away.

He didn’t yank me out with an angry look or scold.

He lovingly touched my mind, reminded me of his love.

Through grace and patience, He drew me out, towards the light.

He taught me the deep abiding unfathomable gift of forgiveness.

He brought a mirror that didn’t reflect me in all my ugliness

But slowly brought into focus the beauty He had created.

Forever grateful, forever safe, forever loved.
