An open letter to anyone suffering.
Dear Precious Soul,
Have you ever felt isolated, alone, unworthy? Felt as though no one loved you? That what you are suffering is unbearable? And that no one understands what you are going through? Have you felt, hopeless, or that you didn’t deserve love? If you have, or you are feeling this way right now, then this letter is for you.
You are not alone. You are precious. You are loved. There is someone who understands you. There is someone who loves you so much He would die for you. His name is Jesus Christ.
To the child with ADHD, dyslexia, anxiety, Asperger’s or Autism, you are loved. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. Your differences do not define you. Being different doesn’t make you less worthy of His love. Jesus is walking with you everyday of your life. Invite Him into it and watch your life be blessed.
To the teenager who wants to be popular and feels socially isolated, you are loved. You were made in His image and Likeness. You are unique and special. Do not feel alone, He is with you. His love will fill you more than you can imagine, more than any material item or social status. Close your eyes and talk to Him.
To the young single person who feels they cannot find love, you are already loved. Ask Jesus to bless your life and your eyes will be opened to love.

He will do the same for your child, and the generations to come from your child. You are not alone in your struggle. Trust in Him and He will guide you. His own mother knows the struggle of unexpected pregnancy, but she was the Lord’s Handmaid. She has been called Blessed for generations. Let yourself be blessed with the child who will love you.

He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Ask forgiveness for your sins. Cast aside your loneliness and let Him in. Make Him your friend. Know and feel you are unconditionally loved. He is the path to Peace and Freedom.
