When Someone Believes In You

by Mark Weinrich

When someone believes in you
like Jesus believed in Peter,
you have freedom to fail
and reason to reach beyond yourself.
What faith-adventure, as the Lord leads
and releases you to become
all you were meant to be.
What wondrous mystery!
Dreams, risks to take, opportunities
through obstacles, all yet to be fulfilled.
All because someone believes in you,
Someone who forgives and forgives again,
Someone who will never give up on you,
Someone who sees the value God places
on you, even when you don’t see it yourself.
Someone who has known the unconditional
Love of Jesus, and he or she has given
that overwhelming love to you.
