“You are chosen.
You are dearly loved.
You are holy.
You are beautiful.
You are pure.
You are my bride.
I have your name engraved on the palm of my hand.”

If you really knew me: you would know that I had so many scars from the past. Some occurrences I have told to people close to me and other things no one but God will ever know about. The thing I struggled most with is self-esteem issues. Those issues consumed my life and for that I did not have a “normal” childhood.
The deepened wounds would try to heal, but I never had the right remedy. Instead, they would create an infection. An infection without proper treatment gets worse and starts to destroy the body.That was my life until I found Christ.
Today, I am still breathing. While sometimes I have the same insecurities that women do, I believe that God made no mistakes when making me. Sometimes hearing myself say that makes me cry. I never thought that he would make me feel as confident as I am now. There’s no doubt that God is alive and can change your life the same way he changed mine.
There is meaning to all our lives. We weren’t placed on this Earth by coincidence. God has a plan for you that’s bigger than you and me. He loves you and thinks that you are beautiful just the way you are.
I no longer have emotional scars because he has helped me to heal the right way.
