You are lovely just the way you are. You don’t have to dress up or down. You don’t have to fake a smile when your heart is a mess. You don’t have to be strong, or act smart, or put on beauty with outer things. Who you are, the whole you, the imperfect you. The quirky, silly, fun-loving you. The anxious, wounded, fearful you. All of it is beautiful, valuable, and worthy of love. So as love knocks on your heart today, whispering words that you ache to hear, fling the door open wide and welcome Him in. You are precious to Him. Yes. You. Are. And if you are feeling low, or stressed, or tired, or hurt….open up your hands and let Him take your burden and give you His peace and joy.
And if you need someone with skin on to talk to, I am here. Happy May Day.
