A Letter to the Broken


To those who feel broken, filled with shame, or downright unwanted… this letter is written with you at the forefront of my mind.

You may not believe it yet, but you are enough.

You are cherished and treasured simply because you are who you are.

You are worth loving just because you exist. You need not earn it or gain it in any way. It’s a preexisting truth since the day you were born.

As you continue to grow, you will never need to be anyone other than the person you are. You will have nothing to prove to this world. You need only to exist and be yourself.

The God of the universe uniquely crafted just one of you. As a fellow brethren in the body, I need you to know; we need you. The REAL you. The you that’s been buried under life’s heartache.

Without you, something is missing. That’s true of all of us. We need You just as much as you need me, and every other person ever created.

You have a mighty purpose. And I don’t mean you need to be “successful” based off the world’s standards. I mean your unique gifting and talents are held by only you and without that we all miss out. Your purpose isn’t contingent upon your occupation or any other social standing. Being you will undoubtedly be enough.

I hope that you’ll feel the freedom to explore this crazy world, knowing that you are deeply loved. Because where true love lives, freedom flourishes. I hope you feel empowered to become the man or woman God created you to be.

I hope you continue to grow in knowing the God of this universe intimately. That you never question how deeply known and fully loved you are by Him. That your identity is stable, so when tough times come, you can rest knowing you’re secure.

You will always be worth loving. You are not a mistake. No matter what.

Your soul may register with these words or be screaming out in rebellion. So whether you’re ready to receive this truth or not, it’s true and always will be. And if you’re digging your heals in the sand then these truths will be patiently waiting, like they always have been, to take up residence in your heart.
