It’s hard to think about it when we realize that so much of what we’ve done in the name of love, and so much that’s been done to us, has actually been a counterfeit. My challenge to you is to toss it. No, a bank won’t replace fake bills- but God? He will totally replace that love, with himself. His love? It satisfies, it fulfills, it is the only thing that buys real and lasting joy. And as you grow in learning the depth, width, height and length of it, rest assured that it’ll cover you and others as you become love itself.
This is the hardest thing I’ve ever written. It’s that precious and important. God IS love.
Hannah, as my eyes fill with tears this very moment, the cry of my heart is that you know this. That YOU are BEAUTIFUL. And that you always will be. Gosh, I want everything for you. I want you to know the value of your precious body, the beauty of your physical “imperfections,” (which according to me- you have ZERO). I want you to know how deeply loved and precious you are.
