What you see is what you get with me

God doesn’t make mistakes, I know.

Even with all my flaws – physically and emotionally – God loves me just the way I am.

But, I still look forward to a glorified body one day in Heaven.

Until then –

I am 5’7” tall

Need to lose weight, have long clumsy arms and legs and I am short waisted.

I am getting gray hair and I am childless

I am slowly accepting the fact that am not a teenager any longer and I should start accepting and loving my 43 year old body.

I have physical scars

From battles I have been conquering since I was 5 years old

On my face – from a glass shelf falling on me

On my left leg – from a fall down a stairwell

On my left wrist – from surgery because my head thinks I am 10 again on roller skates

In my head – can’t see it but I know it’s there from removing a pituitary tumor

I have emotional scars

They are teaching me I am too old to play head games with people any longer

I am learning my worth from them

And I’m learning that if others don’t see it then I just move on

God’s Word reassures me even though I am not worthy He extends his GRACE to me


For God so loved the world (that’s me included)

That He gave his only begotten son

That whosoever believes in Him

Will not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16



One thought on “What you see is what you get with me

  1. This is a beautiful post. I love your transparency, thank you for sharing that. With all of our scars, we are perfect in His eyes. Some how, He gets the glory through our weaknesses 🙂 thank goodness for that.
