Ripped And Torn At The Seams

The Heiress, The Liar, and The True Story
Beaten, battered, broken.
Dress torn, innocence lost, dreams stolen.
The Cinderella story is make believe,
But this is real, unrelenting deceit.  
She seems to recall being told that she was special, that she was priceless.
But everywhere she turns she hears the word 'worthless.'
He said that it's because she was His that she would be so viciously hated.
But someone else says it's her own fault that she's insulted and berated. 
There's that truth manipulated with a lie again. 
On her own there is nothing but a helpless, shell of a woman. 
And that's where the Liar would like to leave the story.
But grace brings restoration which transforms the broken into glory.
When the necklace was pulled and the pearls hit the floor
He wept with you, and promised you'd be restored. 
Bring you into wholeness, and adorn your head with a crown.
You'll kneel at His feet and lay it all down. 
That's the beauty of the reward. 
When it's given, it will be ignored.
Thrown aside by the wonder of His presence. 
Which completely overshadows the sufferings of the present. 
"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us." Romans 8:18
