I must have counseled thousands of people during my pastorate, each one of them broken in some way--
sexual identity issues
but each set of eyes that I looked into from across my desk begged for the same thing....
to be loved for who they were....
I came upon this song by J.J. Heller years ago and every single time I hear it, I cry. Why? Because I can relate to those who came to me for counsel, when what they longed for was for someone to love them for who they were...It is the universal need of the human heart to be loved and accepted, just as we are....
with all of our flaws exposed
regardless of who we are
what we have done
what we will become
There is a God who loves You for You.
Not for what you have done
what you will become.
He will give you the LOVE that you never knew.
