That Girl

1:12 PM


That girl...
She held her head high in order to hide
The emptiness she felt inside.
Years of self hatred and self neglect
It caught up to her
That girl... 

That girl was trapped in the things of the past
The lies she was told at the tender age of seven
The man who approached her at the age of 12
The boy who stole from her at the age of 16
The man she pledged her life to in darkness and deceit
That girl... 

That girl believed the love she received was the love she deserved
There was nothing better for her
She accepted pain as the natural way of life
That girl... 

That girl was afraid of her own shadow
Afraid to sleep with the lights off
Afraid that God wouldn't love her, couldn't love her
Because look at her...
Look at the scars.
Look at the damage.
Look at her...
That girl... 

That girl internalized the lies
Believed that she couldn't leap
That she couldn't be who He'd called her to be.
Surely He couldn't use her...
That girl... 

That girl found it easier to sink into the shadows of doubt
To lay in the depth of despair
To break under the weight of silence
That girl... 

That girl...
Right when that girl had given up all hope, she found the last ounce of courage to stand
And in that moment someone saw the light that was hidden deep inside
And said, "YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE THAT GIRL ANYMORE."
There is more.
You have more.
You were made for more.
That girl... 

That girl finally looked back and realized the life she had been living was a lie
That there was beauty in her soul and in her eyes
That girl... 

That girl took a leap of faith and began to run for all He has created her to be
That girl felt deeper pain than ever before in the midst of the journey
That forever changed her heart and her mind
That girl... 

That girl, through tears and sleepless nights...
That girl became brave
That girl became fearless
That girl... 

That girl ran and ran and ran
until she stumbled into
THIS girl... 

This girl...
Her worth and her value are higher than rubies
Her power is found in the cross
Her faith is found in the waves.
This girl... 

This girl is a survivor.
This girl is courageous.
This girl is a warrior.
This girl... 

This girl will tell you that it's worth every wound to become all that the King of the universe has created you to be and called you to be.
This girl... 

This girl will tell you not to give up the fight because it's true when they say the race is not given to the swift or the strong but to those who endure till the end.
This girl... 

This girl is proof that God can use your scars to heal the wounds of others in the middle of an avalanche
If you're willing to run the extra mile.
If YOU'RE willing.
Yes, YOU.
You girl.
He can use YOU girl.
Rise up.
You are created for a time such as this.
You, girl.
'Cause that girl isn't you girl.
She is your past girl.
But this girl...
She is your present.
She is your future.
So what are you willing to do girl?
