Is taken in by dreadful lies.
She must be thin no matter what.
Her greatest worth is in her size.
Afraid of food and gaining weight,
Is paralyzed and can’t let go.
Won’t let herself enjoy a meal
Although restricting hurts her so.
Conflicting thoughts run rampantly.
It feels so good and yet so wrong.
She turns her back on what is best,
Desire for control so strong.
Keeps bottled up so deep within,
Her anger, sadness and despair.
Dark secrets safely locked away,
Strong guilt and shame won’t let her share.
She thinks so little of herself,
Degrading thoughts bombard her mind.
To others offers only grace,
But to herself is so unkind.
She hears Him say she’s beautiful,
Yet hard to honestly believe.
But on her own she can’t break free,
Endeavors to His truths receive.
A shadow of your former self,
I will not let you waste away.
Please listen now with all your heart
And hear the truth I have to say.
Confused, depressed and all alone,
Distorted thoughts won’t let you see
How beautiful you really are
Or your identity in Me.
It truly does begin inside,
This freedom journey you’ve begun.
Express yourself and lean on Me.
This road is not an easy one.
When feeling anxious and afraid,
Invite Me to your table then.
I’ll strengthen you and calm your fears,
Will sit beside you as your friend.
When lies and doubts are taunting you,
Turn then to Me and take my hand
And know I made you as you are
So I can use you as I’ve planned.
Reject the lies, embrace the truth
And let yourself through My eyes see.
You’ll get a glimpse, My precious one
How beautiful you are to Me.
