She Is Me

Here she is
Having forty winks
She exists untold in thought
Time has departed
Still love can’t uncover her
Though she’s here
Standing here
She tries and fails
Grants all & falls
Beauty isn’t enough
Her darkest secrets aren’t enough
Simplicity is not enough
Her pain
Her hurt
Her anguish
Angst and sorrow
All gone astray
Now liberated
Unashamed of her imperfections
No longer concealed
The present presents itself
Blemishes exposed
No enhancements and disclosed
All of her, All or nothing
Here she is

Just wanted to share something I wrote a while back….I never struggled with self-esteem or confidence, but sometimes you just want people to like you. I wrote this thinking of things I can’t fix… I can’t hide or change….I can’t be remodeled or refurnished, but I still wanted to be accepted. Looking back I would have told myself – God loves you just the way you are and you are perfect in his image!

I know it sounds cliché, but Listen – If you feel unworthy, unloved, or undeserving….I want to let you know that He designed, crafted, molded, and shaped you exactly how He wanted you. Every blemish, every spot, and wrinkle is exactly where He wanted it to be! He numbered the hairs on your head and outlined every inch of your fingerprint exactly how He wanted. He was and will always be the first one that fell in love with you before you were ever known.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb” – Psalm 139:13

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” – Genesis 1:27

So, If you were made in His image – you were made BEAU-TI-FUL! You should feel joy knowing that if no one on the face of the earth ever likes you…or loves you one day, but makes you feel like the dirt beneath their feet another day – There will always be a greater love – greater than anything you can ever begin to fathom – I’m talking about an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and that’s in the love of God!
