When You Feel Unwanted and Unloved
By: Paul Bane
I know how you struggle when you feel unwanted and unloved. You have a nagging suspicion you will never be good enough to be loved. You feel isolated and separated from everyone, even me. You think of all the changes you made to fit in with your family and so-called friends in life. All you ever felt was their rejection in your heart.
You ponder why no one appreciates the effort you made, trying to keep your family together. You struggle to feel life is worth living and question your relationship with me. I want you to hear my word; you are not a failure. Whether you feel like it or not, I love you just as you are. You are my child.
Please give me your broken dreams and the anger you feel of not being accepted. In your pain, know I came into a broken world to reveal the Heavenly Father’s love for you. I want you to experience that nothing you do or have done can separate you from my love. All I ask of you is to open up your heart to me. That is all I want from you.
Don’t let your past hurts, and questionable relationships with others separate you from my love and forgiveness. Let my love transform your heart and attitude about life and give you renewed hope for the future. (The Power and Practice of Letting Go)
Remember, since the beginning of time, all I ever wanted is your heart. You have mine.
And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18 NIV
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 NIV
