Love Yourself

I was sitting at a conference filled with writers for the Lord - Though our writing styles were 
different - Our hearts were in one accord - As the speaker talked I listened but then 
something caught my eye - I saw a cross up on the wall and the Lord was about to die - I 
really tried to concentrate on what the speaker said - But Christ was looking straight at me 
and before He bowed His head - His eyes full of compassion began to fill with tears - He knew 
I had been struggling to love myself for years.  Before He died He said to me - You must 
learn to love yourself as much as I love you and My Father up above - After Jesus said these 
words His Spirit left the earth - But He let me know - He showed me just how much my life 
was worth - When I left the room that night I knew I had been touched - By the hand of 
Christ my Lord who loves me very much - Still sometimes I find myself not being kind to me 
Then I think of that one night when Jesus made me see - That I'm a special masterpiece and 
I'm precious in His sight - When all I see is darkness - I'm surrounded by His light
