My beloved, I wish I could protect your heart and shelter you from pain. When I see your eyes tear up and big emotions flood your heart I would do anything to relieve it, but my love, only God can do that.
He is the only one who can heal pain and hurts that linger, He is the only one who can know all that goes on inside of your mind and why you feel the way you do.
I wish could pour in a heaping dose of self confidence into your very being. I wish you could see yourself how I see you. How precious and wonderful you are for simply being you. I wish I could fill your mouth with kind words about yourself and let grace wash over you. I would do anything to help you see how lovely you truly are, but my love, only God can do that.
He is the only one who can give you your worth. It it comes simply from being His. He is the only one who can transform your heart and your mind so that you can see how fearfully and wonderfully made you are. He is the only one that can destroy the lies of the enemy that have a hold on you.
I wish I could control which way life will take you. To pave a road filled with joy and not sorrow, I wish I could stop tears and a broken heart that I know one day will come. I would love to shelter you and hide you away from the brokenness of the world, but that isn’t the way it works, is it? I wish I could lay out a well planned life for you, but only God can do that.
He is the only one who knows how your life will go, He already has every day planned. And while you will never live a life free from struggle He will use it all for good. He is able to turn your heartache into something purposeful. He will teach you and guide you and mold you into who He has called you to be. He knows what you need to grow and what trials will produce stronger faith in Him, only He can do that.
I wish I could write your name in His book of life. That I could make a way for you to be fully covered. That I could guarantee that you would be sealed into His kingdom forever. There is nothing more than my heart wants for you, nothing else is as important. I would in a heartbeat do just that, but my faith does not cover you. You must live it out yourself and grow to know Him on your own. You must learn to pray for yourself and fall in love with Him all on your own. I would do anything to cover you in His grace but only God can do that.
He is the only one who can cover you with righteousness. He is the one who walked to the cross on your behalf and it is only through your relationship with Him that your name will be written into the Lamb’s book of Life. He is the one who paid the price for your sin, and His name is the only name by which you can be saved.
There are so many things that only He can do for you but He has allowed me to be part of your story with Him. He has allowed me to be someone to show you an example of His unconditional love and grace. He has given me the privilege of praying for you. He has given me a gift to speak life into your spirit and trust that it takes root. He has allowed me to be His helping hand here on earth to show you how very loved you are by your Heavenly Father and I will never stop pointing you to Him, leading the way, and speaking truth.
For my love, there are so many things I wish I could do for you but I know that you must see Him and allow Him to do for you what only He can.
He can do far more for you than I ever could. I will love you with all my strength, but only He can love you perfectly. Yes, only God can do that.
