We can learn so much from the mouths of babes. My daughter and I were laughing 😂 so hard at my granddaughter who was enjoying herself playing dress up. I mean for real dress up in her Halloween gown portraying Princess Belle with the full wig and accessories. She was having a great time twirling and laughing and being the belle of the ball when her wig fell off. My daughter between whoops of laughter pointed out that her wig had fallen off. My granddaughter stood up to her full height and informed my daughter “ But I am STILL Belle”. Hmmm
That statement right there called to my very soul as one of the truest statements ever. Her 5 year old mind was able to quickly comprehend that even though her wig fell off, she was still who she was! Her personal worth was not tied to an object, it’s falling off did not change who she was!
If I could get 10 women to agree with me that we are not tied to the things in our life we could change the world. Imagine if you gained 10 pounds, you are still you. If you lost 10 pounds, got a new car, had a car repossessed, if you lost your way with drugs or a man, if you filed bankruptcy or hit the lotto, you are still you and that is still enough. You are still loved!
We as people of God have to let go of what the world 🌎 tells us about ourselves. We have to start believing that our salvation covers all those things that the enemy would have you believe keeps you in bondage. You are still loved!
“You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”
So if the Son makes you free, you are really free.”
John 8:32, 36 ERV
Man, imagine if we truly lived free from the pain of our past, the doubts of our youth, the pain of rejection, the guilt of our shame and the lost of loved ones. What if we believed what God said about us? You are still loved!
“You formed the way I think and feel. You put me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because you made me in such a wonderful way. I know how amazing that was!”
Psalms 139:13-14 ERV
I’m still Sheveze.. In Spite of the things that have happened to me and the things I have done. I am still loved!
