He Sees

People notice me.  I can’t blame them.  Who wouldn’t turn and look at someone…different.  Some days I feel

awkward
self-conscious
brave
intimidated
intimidating
holy
lowly
ugly
proud
ill-equipped
self-reliant
judgmental
inferior
blessed
confessed
like escaping
overwhelmed
underwhelmed
treasured
worthless
…exposed

I try to control what is seen. My mannerisms, my walk, my talk. Anything to draw attention away from the obvious. Humor is a good weapon. So is kindness. Anger and resentment are not, I’ve learned. They both feed the root of bitterness.

But He sees me.

All of me.  Past the humor or anger, past the way I talk and what I say, past the way I carry myself and promote myself.  (Past my pride.)

He sees me.

He sees the me that was…before Christ, before redeeming grace, before transformation.  He sees that ugliness, that unattractiveness.  He sees the me I am today…alive in Christ, redeemed, accepted, made new, made clean.  Washed in beautiful grace.  He also sees the me I will be…taking on the beauty of Christ.  Becoming more like Him will make me…beautiful.

He can make you beautiful, too.  No matter the scars or stains of sin.  No matter the physical wounds or marks, no matter the bruises of ego or experience.  He can make you beautiful.  Turn to Him.  Receive Him.  Today.  Now.  Let the grace wash over you and make you clean.  Confess your need for saving and begin again. 

I am praying, carrying you, dear Reader to the heart of Jesus.  Be made new as I have.  Be made truly beautiful…He sees you.

He sees you.

He sees you.

    Jen, I met you at Sarah and Sam’s rehearsal dinner. I think you are beautiful, and after talking with LaRhonda, meeting you, and reading your comment, you are even more beautiful than I imagined.

    What you have written has so touched me. You are truly blessed by our Saviour. Who wouldn’t turn and look at you — you are beautiful, created and touched by the hand of God. God bless and keep you.

      Thank you, Linda, for taking the time to comment. Though I don’t write for any comment but the Lord’s, it ministers to me to know that someone else is touched by what the Lord is showing me. Thank you for sharing your heart–how blessed LaRhonda is to have not only a sister, but a sister in the Lord! Blessings to you…
