God created you just the way you are. Whether you are tall, short, shy, outgoing, funny or serious, He knew His plan for you and put into you the qualities you would need to live out your destiny. And after He put His hand on you to shape you into the person He wanted you to be He said, “It is good!”

No matter how anyone else sees you, in spite of how friends and family look at you, in spite of how people at work see you, in spite of how you see you, He said, “IT IS GOOD!” You are unique and beautiful to Him.

My desire for you is that you see yourself as Jesus see you. That means laying down and surrendering other people’s opinions. That means surrendering your own opinion of yourself so that you can see yourself as He sees you.

How do I know the truth about how He views you? After all, I don’t even know you. Everything we believe, whether it be our worldview, our religious beliefs, or our opinion of ourselves must be filtered through the truth of His Word. The world will not always tell us the truth. People around us are imperfect so their opinions will be imperfect. We have been affected by our past, our current circumstances and have emotions that constantly change and skew our opinion of ourselves.

BUT HIS WORD IS PERFECT!!! It is the meausuring rod we can hold everything up to for clarity. So read on and find out what he thinks of you.

PSALMS 139:1-5, 13-18

You have searched me, Lord you know me.

You know when I sit and when I rise;

You perceive my thoughts from afar.

You discern my going out and my lying down;

You are familiar with all my ways.

Before a word is on my tongue You, Lord, know it completely.

You hem me in behind and before,


“For you created my inmost being;

You knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.

When I was woven together in the depths of the earth

your eyes saw my unformed body.

All the days ordained for me were written in your book

before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,

God how vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand.

When I awake I am still with you.”

Don’t be limited by what others think of you. Don’t be held back by your opinion of yourself. I pray that when you look at yourself in the mirror you would begin to see yourself as your Creator intended you to be.

You are beautiful. You are loved. You are created for a purpose.

Who Are You Living For?

I am who I am.

I am who You created me to be.

Who You created me to be is all You require of me.

As You sculpted this body with your hands,

You knew every day, every step, every breathe I would take.

It is You who set in motion the direction of my life and pre-ordained my purpose.

So then as I live each day it is by the standard of Your perfect will that I compare the outcome.

I do not need to look to the left or to the right.

I do not need to tune my ear to the endless input from both well-wishers and those who would criticize.

I look to You, the author and perfector of my faith.

For it is in You that I live and move and have my being.

It is You who works in me to will and to do Your good pleasure.

And it is in You that I find all I need for life and godliness.

It is in You, it is through You, and it is for You that I live.

I’m Back

I have not posted in…well since I can remember. I’ve let my writing go by the wayside but have in recent days been convicted that God gave me a story and He wants me to share it, if for no other reason than so the ones I leave behind someday will hear my story in the way that I intend it to be told. A wise woman told me a while back “Write things down for the next generation.” I’ve been doing that in journals but I think it’s time to share on broader scale again.

A lot has changed in my life since my last post. I’ve been through several years of physical illness that only recently I am finally coming back from and am able to live more fully and normally again. It’s not something I’ve shared with many people and don’t really feel the need to share details of. But the one thing I will share is that I have become very appreciative of the ability to do every day normal things like other people pain free. God is faithful and I am grateful that He is the Great Physician.

Both of my children are now married with children. My beautiful daughter Danielle has two adorable twin daughters. They are miracle babies and that’s a story I’ll share at a future date. My son is walking out his calling as a pastor. He is now a youth pastor at a wonderful church and just weeks ago had a beautiful baby girl. And I am loving the Nonna life.

I have been through the hardest trials of my life since my last post, the greatest disappointments and hurts, but also experienced the greatest joys and the most freedom I have ever experienced. In posts to come I will share some of both the sorrows and joys. So stay tuned to future posts for the continuing story of what God has been up to in the life of this daughter of the King.
