Sharing three poignant paragraphs from my girlfriend, Dawn.
She writes . . .
There is so much brokenness in the world. Some don’t even know how broken they are … she gives her body away for male affection that she craves and hopes it will fill the emptiness, even temporarily. He settles for a girl that doesn’t respect him because the fear of loneliness is too great. She struggles with deep insecurities because she’s never known true unconditional love from parents that should have been the first to show it. He only wants to feel accepted so he changes how he acts around each new person like a wave tossed in the ocean only to never be accepted for who he really is.
All of it … every bit of brokenness in this world … boils down to one thing. Not knowing one’s true worth. We were created by an Awesome Creator. The same Creator that put the stars in the sky, made each unique creature and plant that works together in harmony. And He loves us more. We were never created to live a life of brokenness. And there is a cure. Jesus. Seriously. I’m not talking about a religion. He is real. He is God. There is no other way to God. There is no other way to be right with God. It’s turning away from sin in our lives and putting our faith in Jesus and living for Him, the real Jesus of the Bible alone. And once we know that we are fiercely loved and valued by an Awesome God, that love fills the space of deep-rooted scars and brokenness.
And He heals. He really does. Our minds and hearts and lives change. We learn our perspective was skewed by our pasts and this world. No therapist or drug can heal like Jesus. Everything else that we place our value in, whether our jobs, financial security, significant others or friends, children, sexual conquests, our looks, popularity … all of it will leave us empty and let us down at some point. Being right with God and knowing true peace, joy, and freedom changes everything. We are valuable to God. Priceless, in fact. One of kind. TO GOD. Please don’t miss Him. There’s evidence of Him everywhere. And He wants YOU. The cure to not knowing one's true worth is knowing Christ and one's worth in Him.
I would like to thank my dear friend, Dawn, for allowing me to share her beautiful, wise words with you here at humble and bold. Hope this encourages you!

My perspective was skewed by my past - a father leaving - until I found the unconditional love of my Heavenly Father. Hop on over to my series if you'd like, Forgotten or Chosen?
