Precious in your eyes

Why wasn’t I born dead? Why didn’t I die as I came from the womb? (Job 3:11; NLT).

I hate my life and don’t want to go on living (Job 7:16; NLT).

We know how much God loves us (1 John 4:16; NLT).

The Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost (Luke 19:10; NLT).

Their lives are precious to him (Psalm 72:14; NLT).

****************************************

Lord,

From birth, it was made clear
I was a burden,

Although I never asked
To be alive.

As an adult, mental illness
Made life hell,

But I was too afraid
For suicide.

Yet now I understand
How much you love me,

And that I’m not a burden,
But a prize;

For you sent your Son to earth
To save each one of us,

And all of us are precious
In your eyes.

I'd love to hear from you...
