I Love You Lord – I Matter!

“I matter!

I am speaking up for myself!

When I need to,
I am replying,
That’s just the way
I feel. Those are
my values!

When I need to?
I am walking away.”

smiling… Oh, well!

I Love You Lord – Delight!

“I love You LORD!
and

I am aware You
delight
in me!

I am demanding my rights
and asking to be treated
with fairness and justice.

I am humbly remembering
You made me O LORD.

I am saying,
GET AWAY FROM ME!
when I need to

…because I am Yours Lord.”

I Love You Lord – Speaking Up!

“I love You LORD!

I am speaking up for my rights.

I matter!

I love You Lord and
I am aware You made me.

I do not let others take
advantage of me or torment me.

I am saying ‘NO!
persistently
without feeling guilty.

I am saying, ‘NO!
LOUDLY
so others can hear.

I am walking away when I need to…

I am resting in You then too!”

I Love You Lord – Walking Running Asking Resting!

“I love you LORD.

I am walking away
when I need to…
while resting in You.

I am running away
if that’s safer!
– still resting in You

I am asking for help
from people who are safe.

I am resting in You O LORD.”
