The Best Way to Be Loved Into Realness

Loved into realness; I’m glad God let me be.

The softness has been worn down. But now, even better I see.

If I hadn’t been worn down; if I hadn’t been broken in two

He couldn’t have made me into anything new.

The world says I’m ugly; not worth very much.

But He says something different with His tender touch.

I am loved; I am beautiful — no matter how I feel.

Because God’s wonderful, reckless love has made me truly real.

And now that I know God’s love has made me real

I can share that love with others, so they, too, can heal.

Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:37–40, NKJV)

The best way to be loved into realness is to return the love you receive and to actively extend that love to others.
