I am going to be super personal about myself in this post. For years I have let Satan in my head. I have let him taunt me. I have let him whisper lies into my ear about what the world thinks of me. “Oh, Melodie. You foolish child. Don’t you see? You will never be good enough.” What God could possibly want to do with you? You’re a freak with a muscle disorder. You have so much anxiety and depression. You let anger control you. You are nothing.”
For years I listened to those souless, cruel words pierce into my heart like a thousand knives. I almost listened. I almost gave in. Until He saved me. He came into my life like a soft, cool breeze. He touched my soul like no thing could. He looked at me. He looked at my stained, sinful self and said: “You are Mine.”
I have finally listened. I know my worth. I know what I am capable of. I don’t need a nice job, a nice lover, or a nice life to define me. God defines me. He is in my inner being. He controls my every thought and turns evil ones into holy ones. God can do the same for you. He can be your everything. Let Him in. Trust Him. Let him define who you are.
“I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy. Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.” Psalms 116:1-2
