For knowin’ you this way
Things I couldn’t do before now I think I can
And I’m leavin’ here a better man

If you are experiencing pain right now, trust me, that won’t last forever. Ask God for his healing power and eventually, He will heal your broken heart. Don’t lose hope because, I believe, one day you will find someone who would love you despite your imperfections. Someone who will stick around even if the circumstances are inconvenient. Someone who would fight for you. Someone who would take care of you. Someone whom you can share all your secrets and pains with. So, for all the people who are in pain right now, remind yourself that God has someone for you.
