you. you were crafted. so unique. so individually. you are unlike anyone. intricately made. loved beyond any human comprehension. treasured beyond measure. worthy. sought out. chased after. these are all qualities of you. He knows you. He knows the things about you that no one knows. the number of hairs on your head. the number of freckles of your face. He crafted you. put time and effort and love into every movement He made while forming you. He breathed life into you. made a plan for you. but you fell short. we all do. you messed up. sometimes more than most humans would find forgivable. and you separated yourself from your Maker. this separation is filled with emptiness and it comes with a price. your human heart longs for the kind of love that no human can give. this void in your heart, it hurts. so you try to fill it. with others, with affirmation, with likes, with views, with followers. but this just pulls you deeper. the search for people just pulls you into a fear of rejection. the search for affirmation just pulls you into people pleasing which leads to anxiety when you fall short. the search for likes and views and followers makes you begin to believe that your worth is based on the numbers which leads to depression. this void isn’t filled. it just becomes bigger. it just becomes bigger and bigger until the emptiness seems to eat you alive. you believe what you have labeled yourself. which is rejected, unworthy, a burden, a screw up, and a mess. but your Maker. the One who so carefully crafted you. He looks into you. He looks past the void, past the labels, past what the human eye can see and sees you. the you that He made. the you that He loves. the you that He breathed His own breathe into. and He decided that this separation was no longer. so He. He so carefully took a piece of Himself. He carefully crafted it in His mother’s womb and breathed His life into it. He walked this earth the same way you do. except His story is a bit different. He was born to die. and He knew it all along. He was born to suffer this awful, painful, agonizing death and He had the power to stop it. but He wanted an end to this separation that was breaking you. so He. in such a loving manner, paid your price. He took it upon Himself to suffer all that you have suffered and more to see an end to this separation. your Maker became just like you so that you could be healed. because of His great sacrifice, the rejection is replaced with love. the anxiety is replaced with peace. the depression is replaced with joy. those labels that you once called yourself are taken off and rewritten. rejected becomes loved, unworthy becomes worthy, a burden becomes a delight, a screw up becomes a purpose, and a mess becomes a message. a bridge is built across the separation and the void in your heart is eternally filled. your soul that once felt so dead has come to life again and is radiant with joy. the love that your human heart so desperately longed for had been given to you. all because your Maker. saw past your mistakes, past your short comings, past your scars and sins. and He saw you. you. for all you are. for all you have been and will be. saw you not only at your best, but at your worst. and deemed you His. and came in the form of a tiny baby, born to die. because your Maker made and loves you.
