You didn’t have to try… but you did.
And sure, maybe you screwed up- a lot- maybe you even feel like you failed. But look at where you made it to…. Look baby girl, YOU MADE IT.
…because God loves you, through it all. He is proud of you and you have nothing to be ashamed of. Yes you messed up- but your name is NOT shame… It is Faith.
You are faith.
You are now patience.
You are peace.
You are perseverance.
You are surrender.
You are human.
You are alive.
And you are LOVE.
…and you deserve forgiveness.
Forgive yourself. Because that IS love.
Breathe again. You’re allowed to be happy- and anyone who would tell you otherwise… lies.
