I know the heavy feeling of shame and doubt

Beautiful girl, I'm here for you

I know there's things you won't talk about

I know how men have hurt you

I know the heavy feeling of shame and doubt

Come and sit with me

Lets take this heavy burden off your shoulders

I'm here to listen to your story

To love you the way Jesus does, to bring warmth instead of letting you grow colder

He manipulated you

He pushed you around

I know, love, I know how he lied to you

I know he tore you down

I've been there, too

I believe it was for a reason

I think I'm here to help you

So you don't have to feel alone through this season

I've been broken, too

Many times by boys who didn't know what it was to be men

I thought all hope was gone, that I'd never be new

I have many scars from way back when

I'm here to hold you

I'm here to listen without judgement

I'm here to feel this with you

To encourage you that one day soon you will again feel joy in abundance

I know what its like to be pressured

What it's like to just want to make someone happy

Only then to have your heart severed

Baby, I know how heavy that is to carry

It's not your fault, I need you to believe that

You are not damaged or disgusting or broken

Jesus takes one look at shame and he rebukes that

He will hold you in his arms and make you knew, I know this because even in my life he's spoken

Jesus feels your pain

He weeps alongside you

You are never alone, he will never leave you crying in the rain

He's waiting with arms open for you

Forget about all that you are carrying, he will take your burdens from you

Run to Jesus and you will heal, his love will make you feel brand new
