Maybe I cannot save you, but I will love you. I will love you with everything I have—my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my body, my strength, my soul.
Listen: Who you are is someone to be proud of.
This year, don’t be afraid to cut social media (or real life) ties.
Promise that you’ll seek happiness, and be happiness.
And maybe when you willingly sacrifice yourself, when you willingly share your vulnerability and imperfection, when you willingly entrust your heart in someone’s hands—that’s when you experience real love.
Know that you are loved. Know that you are strong. Know that you are beautiful and wonderful and complex and made by a God who will never leave or forsake you, no matter how much you push Him away.
I wish you enough love, enough life, enough purpose, enough brokenness, enough wholeness, so that your life is imperfect and beautiful and blessed.
Love is not perfection. In fact, it is everything but.
I need you.
I want to tell you I love you, but I won’t.
