You Say...

You Say…

You say that you’re a pile of dung
That in the meadows lay
I say that you’re a cherished soul
For whom I died to save.

You say that you’re an accident;
Your mother’s foul mistake,
I say that I planned your life
And I love all that I make.

You say that you’re a nothing,
Your life's an empty hole,
But I gave to you a purpose
When I gave to you your soul.

You say that I don't love you,
That God does not exist,
That I cannot hear your prayers
Wouldn't answer if I did.

May I say that I see you,
I see your every tear,
I'm just as real as you are,
And always very near;
Although you cannot see Me,
I'm ever by your side,
I made you to walk with Me
In love, and joy and light.
Not in the darkness of self hate
Nor the spell of devil lies,
I died to free you from his chains
To give You love and life.

Open up your heart to Me,
I'll give to you new eyes,
You will see as I see you
A cherished jewel of Mine.

You will see yourself anew
And I will give you peace,
Love and joy will fill your heart
The darkness then will cease.
You must walk by faith, My child
If you would gain new eyes,
To replace your hate with love,
Your darkness with Christ's light.

Come to Me, oh come believe,
Your sorrow put away,
I say that you’re a cherished soul,
For whom I died to save.

Heavenly Father, may all who read this prayer poem and these scriptures hear Your voice whispering in their heart that You cherish them more than they could ever comprehend. May You help them know that their life has infinite value, that You make no mistakes, that You love all that You create, that You allowed Your only Son Jesus Christ to suffer, bleed and die like a criminal on a Roman cross of execution over 2000 years ago to prove it so that we all might be forgiven and live forever with you in love and peace. Thank You, Lord, In Jesus' name, amen. 

 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:16-17 (NIV)
