No longer do I need to struggle
Supplying emotional needs,
To search for a love that fulfills and protects,
To forage for what my soul needs.
I finally know that God loves me,
Oh why did this take me so long?
I have become stable and now I am able
To greet each new day with a song.
No longer do I run for cover
Because I'm not sure of myself,
From self He has freed me and I don't just see me,
Removed from my self-centered shelf.
The wounded and broken surround me,
Convinced of His love, I'm now free,
How then can I show them that You truly know them,
Forever Your love guarantee?
"We need have no fear of someone who loves us perfectly; his perfect love for us eliminates all dread of what he might do to us. If we are afraid, it is for fear of what he might do to us, and shows that we are not fully convinced that he really loves us." I John 4:18-19 (The Living Bible)
