Intrinsic Value



I love you.

I know you are a pathological liar.
I know you cheated on your husband.
I know you can't stop eating.
I know you think you're better than me.
I know you can't stick up for yourself.
I know you make excuses.
I know you are a victim.
I know you are living a lie.
I know you don't understand yourself.
I know you aren't generous.
I know you are tired.
I know you don't want to be alive.
I know you yell at your kids.
I know your parents didn't love you.
I know you keep coming back to drugs.
I know you steal.
I know you can't stop thinking about your abortion.
I know you hate everything.
I know you are apathetic toward God.
I know you look other men.
I know you hate your body.
I know you've lost your faith.
I know you're trying to be perfect.
I know you're prideful.
I know your heart is cold.
I know you were abused.
I know you're lazy.
I know you're not popular.
I know you can't find a job.
I know you are negative.
I know you neglect your family for work.
I know you criticize others.
I know you can't forgive.
I know you made a huge mistake.
I know you want to be loved.



I know you're just like me. But I still love you. :O)

I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you. I love you, you beautiful thing. I love you so much.

Here's to your intrinsic value. 
Love,
Disney

  5. This reminded me of a quote I heard in a movie about Hosea last night- God's love is not dependent on us (what we do, etc). He just loves us. Thanks for sharing.

  13. What an encouragement! You know what's funny, I look at those nature shots and thank our Creator for their beauty… and He loves us more than those, thinks we're more beautiful than them, cares enough to send His Son to die for us… it is AMAZING, thanks for the reminder!

    1. That's exactly what made me think of it. I love nature so much, but it's nothing to a human soul! Sappy, I know, but truthful. :O)

  18. Thank you so much, Disney. Just when I needed some encouragement, and was feeling frustrated at myself for being so imperfect, you bring a smile, a tear, and some absolute truth back to me.

    Thanks.

  22. What a powerful post! It was a reminder to me to show Jesus' love through my love - to love regardless of fault - to show unconditional love to others.

  23. Thank you Disney. Very real and to the point. I am on that list. I am also on the hurt end of this list (recently) and sometimes wish I could shout it to the world. He does love us... more than we can comprehend. Thank you again, Heidi

  25. Disney, my dear, you are a gem. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And, I love you, too. (I am going to borrow this and repost it, linking back to you, of course.)

  26. I read it and I didn't like it. I read it again. Like being slapped. I read it again. I read the comments. I read it again. It actually made me feel...angry. Why, why, why? Then I realised...

    I am imperfect. It hit home. Those things on the screen were things in me, my life, my world. Things I hate about myself. Things I try to hide. Yet, I was being offered unconditional love. But I felt undeserving of that love, so I felt angry and confronted.

    But we're all imperfect and we are all deserving of love, forgiveness, mercy. I deserve love. I deserve to love and be loved and I am truly blessed because I can say that I do have that in my life.

    Thank you for the reminder.
