Unconditional Love

Mark 10.9 – Let no-one split apart what God has joined together
Psalm 68.6 God places the lonely in families
Exodus 20.12 Honour your father and mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

Shattered and battered I came forlorn – empty handed at your doorstep
Lost and confused to why my plans did not work the way
I had imagined
I did not want to be here, nor did you want this
Resistance on all fronts
Yet…

God had different ideas
God wanted to bless
God wanted to teach about love
To the brokenhearted
God wanted to set the lonely in families

I did not want to open my heart
I wanted to run, I wanted to hide
I wanted to resist this overwhelming sense
Of belonging, of being
Accepted for who I am

But your persistent gentle encouraging love
Unzipped my heart bit by bit
I was good at hiding
I am still good at hiding
I cannot hide like I used to hide
Like a magnet
I am drawn to the safety
Of your unconditional love

I am not sure why
You opened your heart
For this broken undeserving girl
I am not sure what you saw
But all the questions I have
Float into the air
Relax – there is no need for an answer
Learn to relax in love
Be yourself
We love you for who you are

And so I belong
I have become a daughter
I am a daughter
