Somebody is Crazy About You

A little letter from me to you to start your week: 

My dear, beautiful friend,

Did you know that as you woke up this morning, stumbled to the kitchen, brewed and poured a hot, steamy, rich mug full of coffee - you were adored? Loved beyond imagination? Desired more than you can comprehend? You were. And so was I. With your hot mess of bed head, old ratty sleep t-shirt and all.

And despite the lies in your head that whisper, "You are not enough" or "You are too much",
you aren't. Somebody is crazy about you. He is. Jesus is. 

He loves you when you're asleep and when you wake up wishing there more a few more hours of rest. He loves you when your bleary eyes try to focus on your work and your mind strives to forget the things that hurt your heart.

He loves you when you're planning, when you're happy, when you're lazy and when you're despairing. He loves you when you wear your perfect fake masks. And He loves you when you're desperately real. He loves you when you blast your favorite song in the car. He loves you when you are silent and can't think of a word to say to Him.

He loves you when you're so angry you want to scream. And He loves you when you don't understand. He loves you when you fly on the wings of joy and He loves you when you sink into the depths of despair.

He loves you when they adore you, and when they forget you. He loves you when you're popular and your Instagram picture gets all the likes. And He loves you when no one notices.

He loves you when the guy chases you. And He loves you when he walks away from you.

He loves you when you're "together" and He loves you when you're a mess.

He loves you when you laugh and when you weep.

He loves you when you're up and He loves you when you're down.

He loves you. He loves you. He loves you. 

Always. Ever. Never ending. Never failing. On and on and on and on.

This is where your worth is found.

Own it. Rock it out. 

Because.... you are His.

Happy Monday, beautiful. 

Your sister,

 Erin. 

PS - & I love ya too.

  1. AMEN!! Thanks so much for this awesome truth.

    I'm so glad I finally got this!
    After years of trying to earn His Love, all the years I spent crying because I thought I've failed.

    He opened my eyes to a new song.. to who He really is.. He loves me not because of who I am or what I've done.. But because of who He is and what He's done! We serve an Awesome God!

    Love ya Erin! XOXO
