Treasured One

Tossed about on waves of doubt
Seeking an anchor in the storm
Cleave to the One who values you
Your tempest He will surely transform

Riding high on a victory
Don’t let it go to your head
Remember the One who adores you
Praise His provision instead

Encumbered by the trials of life
Fear and worry long oppressed
Rest in the arms of Him who loves
Knowing in Christ you are blessed

Attaining goals long pursued
For yourself to make a name
Leaves you feeling empty and lean
Find plenty when Jesus you proclaim

Shamed by guilt of past mistakes
Craving forgiveness and release
Jesus bids grace to all who come
In humility accept His sweet peace

Unburdened in a world gone dark
Basking in God’s radiant Light
Cease your striving to be the best
Trust God who set all things right

Reviled at times by ungodly folk
For the truth that you believe
Jesus promises this assurance
From your presence He’ll never leave

Emboldened by your deepening faith
Live to bring Him rightful glory
Practice daily mercy and love
Find your place in His grand story

Daughter, you are treasured
By the Almighty King of kings
He left His heavenly throne for you
Cherish the salvation He brings
