I loved reading Cicely Tyson’s book “Just As I Am”. Her powerful journey through life is encouraging as I continue my own journey. When you are different from what society considers the norm you may find yourself left out of family photo’s, gatherings, events and the like. All of these could lead a person to loneliness, anxiety and so much more. However to love and embrace yourself, who you were created to be is the beginning of knowing what true love is. After all none of us can say we love God whom we’ve not seen and not love man, who we see daily, beginning with the reflection in the mirror. To really know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made has a way taking you to heights unknown, allowing you the awesome privilege of breathing in deeply, exhaling slowly and attracting what you desire and that is Love!!! Today embrace the beautiful soul that you are and know that it is all good and all God, who simply loves you without any conditions. According to what is written King David knew this all to well.
(Psalm 139:14-16 NKJV)-“I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.”
