Trust God’s Promise in Isaiah 41:13

Emily Acker

When pain is too much to bear
and we feel unworthy of love or life,
when harming ourselves seems the only way
to get through the problems we face,
when we feel we can’t go through another day,
that we need to hurt ourselves to feel alive,
God is there.

God does not like watching us injure
the wonderful individuals God created.
God has decided that we are worthy
and has already made a way for us.
God carries the pain we can’t bear,
wipes our tears, and helps us feel worthy of love.
God is there.
