Dear Girl: A Letter

This post has been a long time coming… I wrote it in my notebook late one night a couple of months ago when I couldn’t sleep. Since then, it’s been sitting in my drafts, waiting for the right time to be published. I really feel passionate about this- it’s something that’s been on my heart for ever so long. So finally, here it is!

Dear Girl,

How are you today? How are you feeling? How is your heart?

I have something to tell you, which is why I decided to write this letter. This something has been heavy on my heart for a long while, and you may think it’s a load of rubbish or that you’ve heard it all before, but all I ask is that you stick with me. Read until the end and then, if you still think what I’ve written is nonsense, that’s fine.

Okay, here’s what I’ve got to tell you. Here’s the secret.

You’re special.

Did you know that? Well, you might have. Someone might have said to you before, ‘ you are very special to me’ or ‘I love you very much’. And maybe that really sunk in, but maybe it didn’t. You might have thanked them for their words but then later wondered how special you actually were… how much they really meant what they had said.

But it’s true. You are special. In fact, you are very special. I wonder if you know exactly how special you are.

So let me tell you. You, darling girl, are more special than all of the birds in the sky. You are more special than all the fish in the sea. And you are more special than all the animals on the land. Why? Because you are the daughter of a King.

You are the daughter of the Most High King. A King who breathed creation into existence and who knew you before you were born. This King created you in His image, lovingly knitting you together in your mother’s womb, handcrafting with the utmost care you like He is the potter, and you are His clay. He has your name engraved on the palm of His hand, He knows every hair on your head and everything about you. He loves you, and you are HIS.

You are His, and nothing can ever, ever change that. No matter how broken or messed up you may feel, no matter how much you’re hurting or how far you’ve run and regardless of anything you’ve been through or absolutely anything you’ve done, He loves you more than you could possibly imagine. No good or bad or in-between thing could ever, ever change in the slightest how much this King loves you.

This very King has concerned the grave and destroyed death so that he can have a relationship with you. He died an agonising and humiliating death on a cross for YOU. He did this, even though He was perfect, so you would know how loved you are and so that you could be His daughter and be with Him for eternity. This great sacrifice was the greatest act of love ever, and it was for you… for you and for me.

So you see, you, darling girl, are very, very special. A sinless King died on a cross for you- the greatest act of love known to man. And then he created you. He formed you in the womb, knew you before you were born and has a magnificent plan for your life.

You are so, so special.

You are loved beyond measure.

You are beautiful, a masterpiece.

You are royalty.

Royalty, because you are the daughter of a King.

The one and only King.

King Jesus.

  1. I’m going to be vulnerable for a minute and admit that this moved me greatly, almost to the points of tears. Redemption and Grace, especially coming from God, are two very powerful things that can be utterly transformative and game changing in our lives. I’d say that most of us go through life attempting to explain who we are, what we do and basically why we matter. We tell others what we have to offer, what we’re good at and slap all these labels on. The Lord, however, doesn’t even need to peel off the layers of mask to see us in our messy and beautiful entirety. He knows our multi faceted beings on such an intimate scale that it’s overwhelming. As you said so well, down to the individual hairs on our head. He knows our thoughts, our insecurities, our passions, our dreams, our need to feel loved, seen, heard and appreciated. Even though He is God and doesn’t operate on a manly level that could be comprehended by us, he affirmed our inherent worthiness in a way that could be fathomed. What a great act of love, that no matter how far we stray, where we run to or how unsure we are, He keeps our heart beating and sets us on a slow and steady path to knowing Him and his miracles.

    Thank you so much for sharing your musings Megan. I was very very touched. Sending lots of love and light your way! x

    1. That was a beautiful comment, thank you Maryam! I honestly had no idea that anyone would be so touched by something I’d written, I’m truly quite humbled!
      I’ll be honest, I didn’t know exactly what to say in response to what you’ve said, because you said it so beautifully. I really do agree… without the Lord’s redemption and grace I almost don’t like to think what our lives would look like. His love for us really is so overwhelming, so incomprehensible… when we stop and realize the way it fights for us and chases us and never gives up on us, it brings us almost to our knees.
      So thank you for your beautiful words, my sweet friend! xx

  2. Aw Megan, this is so sweet! It’s truly from your heart, and its all so true! Sometimes we get so caught up in the everyday, but slowing down like this to think about His great sacrifice just reduces everything to dust in comparison with His sovereignty, plans, and glory!! I’m so glad you posted this – I love it! (The writing is beautiful too!)

    1. Agh thank you, sweet friend! It’s true… it’s all too easy to get consumed with everything going on around us, but all of that is nothing compared to our Heavenly Father and His immense, unexplainable love for us! xx
