MADE FOR LIGHT

You want to be found, but you're looking in all the wrong places.
You've got your life built up from the outside, but everything is in pieces within.
You think to yourself, "Maybe this is how it's supposed to be."
Broken, cold, and lonely in this dark world, and you don't know how to turn on the light.
Once upon a time, it was inside jokes and best friends forever & then one day everything in your life is slipping away.  All taken for granted before, and now you've seen the hour where it's no longer a part of who you are.  It's gone, and your heart is stringing along behind it.
The voices of criticism from the outside become the voices that wake you up in the middle of the night.
"You're not good enough.  You can't do this.  Give up."

But God says, 
"Your worth more."


I hope these pictures can bring a ray of hope.  Let God shine through the darkness of your day.  Remember, He created you to do much more than listen to those voices that tell you to quit trying.  Believe that a life can grow from anywhere, as long as you ask for a little light.
