Finding Love

Bringing herself down to the bottom wasn’t that hard. The only thoughts running through her mind were those of being lonely. Her friends had seemed to completely ditch her and leave her all alone.
She couldn’t think of anyone that had spoken to her that day that she actually wanted to talk to. She didn’t understand it. All the sudden everyone had left her alone at the same time. She felt horrible, so incredibly lonely and sad.
She began to write these awful feelings down but became overwhelmed by her own sadness and tears, so she stopped. She crawled under her covers like she did every night. Thoughts flew through her mind, trying to think if she had forgotten to do anything that day.
“Your Bible”, a voice said. Ugh, she thought. I’ll do it tomorrow, I’ll just read twice as much. But the thought kept nagging her mind no matter what she told herself. Fine, she thought. “Just open it to a random page and read”, a voice said. She grabbed her bible and took a deep breath.
She couldn’t believe she was doing this, she was so tired and upset. “I’m going to get in trouble for staying up late”, she thought. She pushed aside the thoughts and opened the bible. Once she had opened it she just began to read. It was the end of a book. The words dove into her and choked her. She began to cry.
It was the end of Zepahaniah she read. “Sing, oh Daughter of Zion”, it said. “Be glad and rejoice with all your heart. The Lord has taken away all your punishment. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with his love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” She knew right away that God was trying to tell her that he still loved her.
With these words now treasured in her heart, she went to sleep with the feeling of love over her.
