Someone said it's not God's will for us to feel unloved and unwanted and insecure.
Oh, how my mind knows that.
But sometimes my heart feels differently.
When from a small child you're made to feel that way it often carries over into adulthood and sometimes it takes just the smallest of things to cause those feelings you thought you had been able to suppress come rising to the surface and flooding back.
Our daughter gave me a copy of Streams in the Desert and this poem seemed to just jump off the page and feed a hunger deep inside me reminding me that I need only to seek HIS love and that of nobody else.
Loved! then the way will not be drear;
For One we know is ever near,
Proving it to our hearts so clear
That we are loved.
Loved when our sky is clouded o'er,
And days of sorrow press us sore;
Still we will trust Him evermore,
For we are loved.
Time, that affects all things below,
Can never change the love He'll show;
The heart of Christ with love will flow,
And, we are loved.
