Amazing Grace

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:

Psalm 139:14

Every single day this world assists us in identifying something that is wrong with us, whether it be our health, our image, or our lifestyle. There are always plenty of remedies. “Quezi” tells me, “there are more than 56,000 pharmacies in the U.S.”. I can take a pill for just about ANY ailment. Everywhere we look we find reminders that our beauty is measured, and used for or against us. But, I can just as easily go get anything on my body altered with chemicals, knives, and risk of life. No need to worry. Lord Jesus, do I need to talk about our lifestyles? According to the church; “I’m out of the kingdom”.

I went through many seasons living in that bondage of “wrongness”. I have worked myself to the bone trying to be “normal”, “beautiful”, “worthy”. I have medicated myself beyond belief trying to feel better. I was focused on living the proper life. Lord, how I have failed!

That’s what the world tries to tell me anyway. And so be it. But I KNOW the TRUTH of who I AM! I need not the world to tell me, I can look within and hear the words of an ALL MIGHTY GOD say to me; “Daughter, you are fearfully and wonderfully made.” And now I praise Him for who I am.

I am the very epitome of strength. I am favored with beauty, just as He made me to be. And I am most certainly filled with, and covered by, Amazing Grace! I will praise Him all the days of my life for this revelation and freedom that comes with it. The glory is all His.
