I used to think my dad didn't love me. That he didn't want me. I spent 31 years battling the fears of abandonment. I wasn't worth being wanted. I wasn't good enough to be wanted. -
After learning about my father. After learning what happened with my parents, all that changed. God rewrote our story, mine and His, mine and my fathers. ⠀
I used to think I wasn't worth coming after. I cry every time I listen to Reckless Love.⠀
"There's no shadow You won't light up.⠀
Mountain You won't climb up, Coming after me.⠀There's no wall You won't kick down.⠀
Lie You won't tear down, Coming after me."⠀
I believe my father wanted to come after me, but he didn't know how. He did love me, but he didn't know how to show me. Humans... we're messy, broken, imperfect. Jesus is all the things we are not. His love is overwhelming and never-ending. He chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine. I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, He gives himself away. Reckless Love. Give it a listen.
