Your words are layers of insecurity:
Stupid. Foolish. Fat. Spoiled.
Every insult buries me within myself,
Every word kills me.
Your praises are freeing me of insecurity:
Smart. Favored. Fabulous. Special.
Every encouraging word brings me out of myself.
Every true word saves me.
I’ll stay in these phrases forever.
Every encouragement is freeing,
Every judgment is condemning.
