Joy is a listener who TRULY has the gift of powerful writing. She shares her heart in a way that reaches the very core of our emotions. It's some of the best I've seen, which is why I wanted you to see this. It could be just what you need to see for some encouragement...or something to SHARE with someone who is hurting.
"I watch you post pictures and memes. I scroll down and stare at your hurt—my heart aching. Your desire to be loved, accepted, known sprawled on my screen with angry words and revealing poses.
A longing for affection in your pleading eyes and skimpy shirts.
You step up to the auctioning block with a soul dying to be loved.
I know you’re lonely. I’ve been there—the girl with no Valentine. The girl without flowers or chocolates or gifts. And it can make you feel so small. So tiny and invisible.
But you’re not. You’re not small or invisible. You’re not unlovable. You’re not unlovely. And if you believe those ideas about yourself, then evil has won the day. Loneliness wants to keep you, chain you. Loneliness wants you to believe a man will save you. That a man’s attention makes you worthy and his kisses and affection restore you. DON’T GIVE INTO LONELINESS!"
