You are worth it.
You are worth leaving the ninety-nine to come rescue when you fall into the crevice of despair.
You are worth being rescued from the isolation the enemy tries to wrap you in. It's his tactic—to whisper lies during moments of hurt and wounding. He wants you to believe that I and others have forgotten about you, that we don't care. He whispers in your ear that you don't have a place.
Oh child, let me dispel the lie and replace it with the truth.
You have a place.
You have a place in My heart. You have a place at My table. You have a place in this world.
Each place is reserved for you and you alone. When you aren't in your place, there is an empty spot that no one else can fill. When you aren't in your place, so many miss out on the joy of who I created you to be.
Those things you are doing to fill the void and numb the pain will never fully satisfy. Precious one, open the door of your heart. Let go of the lie and invite Me into the pain. Give it all to Me, and let My love cleanse your wounds, heal your heart, and quiet your mind.
Allow My love to fill the empty places in your life. My arms are open, walk into them and find your place in Me.
With All My Heart, Jesus
Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ Luke 15: 4-6
