God sees the beauty and value of all His children. His love is the reason we are here, and that is something you should never forget. You can escape the hurt, the loneliness, and the fear. You are loved. You were created for a purpose, and over time it will be revealed to you. Know that where you feel weak, God will give you strength. All you have to do is put faith into action by reaching out to those who love you, those who want to help you, and most of all to your Creator by asking Him to come into your life.
Reject self-destructive thoughts. Shut them off. Replace them with positive messages or prayer. Let go of the bitterness and anger and hurt, and let God’s love into your heart. The spiritual realm is very real. The Bible says that, when we pray, angels come down from heaven and war for us against the principalities of darkness. This is Satan’s army trying to deceive you and destroy you with lies and those little voices of negativity. No need to be afraid, for God hears your prayers, and no name is more powerful than that of Jesus.
Some people may let you down, and it may seem that some even want to cause you harm. God won’t. He has a plan for you. It’s called salvation, and take it from me, it’s worth sticking around to see what He has in store for you both in this world and in heaven everlasting.
