I felt prompted to write what's in my heart when I heard words from a vulnerable song by Plumb, called "Lord I'm Ready Now". This song is honest and beautifully written. It pulled at my heart strings as I can relate to her honesty and vulnerability in learning to let go and allowing God to work in her heart and life. How often have I struggled with this throughout my life; the fears of vulnerability, of being who I am, of letting down the walls of the fortress that I built around my heart; afraid of rejection, afraid of judgments, afraid of being unloved because of a painful past. All these fears point to me looking at myself with critical eyes; focusing on who I am not rather than who I belong to, who He made me to be. You and I belong to a God that loves us so much. We belong to a perfect Savior, who died for us to show us His perfect love. We are so very beautiful in His eyes. His love doesn't see our mistakes because His love penetrates our very soul and sees the beauty in all the mess and heartache. Jesus doesn't need us. Jesus wants us. He ultimately wants to love us. So, as I continue this journey of healing and growth, I pray that I am ready each and every day to be loved by Him and to love Him more each day. I pray I focus on who He is and not who I am not. For those reading this, I pray that you'll fall more in love with Him if He is already your Savior. And for those, that aren't ready, I pray that you are ready now.
