Every once in while
almost as if in a blue moon

I catch a glimpse
of me

a sideways look
an unintentional reflection
a view through another’s eyes
a magical moment in my own brain

and in this glimpse
I see myself
as God sees me

Covered in His glory
Shining His light
through my skin
Reflecting radiance
Pure light
and splendid color

I am whole
I am pure
I am loved and loveable
I am beautiful
I am innocent
I am His
and I am amazed

Create in me a clean heart, O God
wash away my negative thoughts
scrub my mind to a sparkle

Renew my connection with you
holding me in your arms
gathering me in your lap
so that all I see
is you

Restore unto me
the joy of you
you have saved me
you have freed me
you love me

Remind me
of your grace
Remind me
of your love
Refresh my spirit
with your presence
You are always by my side

His grace surrounds you no matter what you do, or is done to you.
God cloaks you in His love, and hugs you tight.

♥ No shame, no guilt. ♥
No matter what.

Thank you God
for loving me
for giving your son
so that I may live

May the Lord bless and keep you
May His face shine upon you
May you experience His peace
May you feel His strength
May you hear His soothing voice
May you know His unconditional love

His love
is always there
We just have to reach out for it
Be open to it
Stop trying to control it
Stop pretending we can define it

God’s love is unconditional
no parameters
nothing you do to earn it
nothing you do can destroy it

Be who you are
just who you are
with no condemnation
for things you wish you could change

God doesn’t expect you to be perfect
(whatever that really is anyway)
He loves you
exactly as you are

He WILL bless and keep you
He WILL shine upon you
just let him

Thank you for joining me this month for the celebration of
i AM complete

as the month comes to a close, i want to remember:

no man, woman or child is needed to make me whole

no romantic comedy, or fairy tale, paints the real picture for me

i do not need to be rescued for a happily ever after

real love is kind, sincere, patient, never resents, and always apologizes

the roles i have in my life, no matter how well i do them, do not complete me

and God love me more than i can imagine, no matter what i do

i don’t need to be anything different
i don’t need to have anything different
i don’t need to do anything differently

because of God’s grace
i am a beautiful image of Him
just as i am.

i rest
and know
i am complete.

I have a pretty good imagination

I can make up stories
about far away places
fairies and goblins
heroes and damsels

I can make up stories
that are closer to home
about what you are thinking
who you think you are
why you did what you did

But none of my stories
can touch
the wonder
the amazing story
about the depth
of God’s love

Thank you, Lord
for not being limited
to my imagination

Hey self,
Gimme a break.

This is who I am today
and that’s ok
I don’t have to be “better”
I don’t have to have things  “handled”
I don’t have to have it all “figured”
I don’t have to have it all in “control”

This is me
This is today
This is ok

O God, praise your name!
I am blessed to know you
To be able to talk with you

To know you listen
to my words and cries
To know you care
about the simple things I ponder

You bring comfort to me
You lift me in times of sadness
You celebrate with me in times of joy

You know my weaknesses
and love me anyway

You see me
as perfect
as the robes of your Son
cover me

Your grace
coats my flesh
sealing my skin
in radiant light

I am covered by you
I am loved by you
I am blessed

Dear Heavenly Father,

A new year approaches

I thank you for the opportunity it brings

to see you better
to know you deeper
to let go of my need for control
let go of my need to know all the answers
before I even know the questions

another opportunity to start fresh

to learn something new
to love
to trust
to sing

to sit in your arms

Thank you for loving me
even though I don’t understand it all the time
I know it’s real
and I will cherish it.
