You Reading This

You were born to live

a wildly special life,

despite the impulse to cave,

despite the terrible love you’ll have to fight for,

despite the lie that you don’t deserve the same.


You reading this, deserve it all:

the love and joy you want to give and receive.

So keep your head up, smile,

and know with absolute certainty

it will all be worth it.

You Are It For Me

life turned

this way

life turned

that way,

but it always came back to You.


no other words but

thank You.

thank You for

holding me

when I couldn’t even hold my own self.


I never had to.

I was in the palm of Your hand.

John 10:28
