The beauty of and in Creator.
The rejected, the despised, the trash, the isolated, the ugly, the scarred, the lonely, the scared, the sinner, the lost.
He came to save these and all others that would call on Him.
Do I continue seeking approval from the world?
For over 35 years, trying to fit in, trying to be accepted, trying to get along, trying to get love, trying to get a hug, trying to get a kiss, trying to win friends, trying to gain favor, trying to get good grades.
Giving myself away completely to the influence of others, the control of others, the attitudes of others, the opinions of others.
Yet He kept me one more day to wake up!
Thank you Father!
With meekness and wisdom in faith, I look only to Him, I serve only Him, I love only Him.
And all of a sudden, I give myself away again, only now to Him. Now to others, to serve them, to love them, not as the World does, but as He does through me.
Blessed Be G-d Most High!
Worthy is the Lamb!
“Who hath believed our report?
and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.
He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.”
Isaiah 53:1-12 KJV
