Loved is Your Name

Loved is your name, because loved is what you are.

Though many other names than this, have scraped across your heart.

This world does not always see you or recognise your name,

It does not know your name because it does not know it’s own.

Loved is your name, because loved is what you are.

Treasured is your name,  valuable is what you are.

Though many times you feel like any other name but this.

How I wish your worth you’d feel, like sun soaking into skin,

and your value in your veins carrying the truth straight to your heart.

Treasured is your name, valuable is what you are.

Brave is your name, because strong is what you are.

Though darkness dashed you, drowned you, still you have your heart.

And in all the angry sadness, when the darkness weighs you down

Simply breathing becomes braveness, laughing an act of valour.

Brave is your name, because strong is what you are.

Known is your name, because seen is what you are.

You are beheld and held in honour, you are not lost in the dark.

God is leaning low and whispering to your heart,

whispering back your name to you, when the world tore it apart.

Known is your name, because seen is what you are.

  2. Thank you Lizzie…just beautiful. It has been fascinating as I’ve read and seen the pictures…I have prayed for the children of Trench Town over the years, but suddenly as I saw those little ones with their ribbons reading Loved, and Beloved and Chosen, I saw them in a different way…the barrier of our different worlds was dissolved. I looked at them and loved them. And when I look at the last photo in the blog, it seems to me there is a gentleness in the children’s faces which I don’t associate with Trench Town.

    Through he vast evil, it may be that a great good will yet be seen – is being seen. Love, AAXXXX

      Thanks A.Anne, That last line is very encouraging in particular. And the picture of the three girls at the end… they are all girls in our kids clubs programme. 🙂
