It is time for a change. A positive change.
I just deleted my most recent post that gave you a glimpse into my struggles with an ED. Why? Well there are many reasons… One of which that I had been reminded of by a poem that my Grandmother gave me not too long ago, and it is something I would like to share right now.
I Made Her Because I Love Her
I made her… she is different, she is unique.
With love I formed her in her mother’s womb.
I fashioned her with great joy.
I remember, with great pleasure, the day I created her.
To me she is beautiful… I love her.
I love her smile. I love her ways.
I love to hear her laugh,
and the silly things she says and does.
She brings me great pleasure.
This is how I made her.
She is herself, and no one else…
I made her pretty and not beautiful,
Because I know her heart, and I knew she would vain…
I wanted her to search out her heart and learn that
it would be ME in her that would make her beautiful…
And it would be Me in her that would draw friends to her.
I made her in such a way that she would need Me.
I made her a little more lonesome than she would like to be…
Only because I need for her to lean and depend on Me.
I know her heart, I know if I had not made her like this,
She would go her chosen way
and forget Me… her Creator.
I have given her many good and happy things…
because I love her.
Because I love her, I have seen her broken heart…
and the tears she cried alone.
I have cried with her, and had a broken heart too.
Many times she has stumbled and fallen alone
only because she would not hold my hand.
So many lessons she learned the hard way
because she would not listen to my voice…
So many times I have sat back and sadly
watched her go on her merry way alone…
Only to watch her return to My Arms,
Sad and broken.
And now she is mine again.
I made her, and then bought her…
because I love her.
I have had to reshape and remold her
to renew her to what I had planned for her to be.
It has not been easy for her or for Me.
I want her to be conformed to My image.
This is the high goal I have set for her…
Because I love her.
We are all unique, and beautiful. And I was reminded yesterday, AND today that the reason for my weakness and pain is because I am no longer living my life with the Lord. I am more focused on what the outside world has to say about my image.
God created us not merely to exist on this world. He created us for a purpose!
