I Made Her

This has been a weird week for me. Although it ended fantastic. The beginning of the week was just bad. There are some days I struggle with depression more than others. Monday and Tuesday were really bad days for me. I have a lot of things I need to change about myself and my thinking. I challenge my relationships every day with various people in my life, hurting myself and others. These people still manage to love me despite of it all. It's hard to comprehend that, but they do. Hmm....just like my relationship with God.

On Thursday, I celebrated my 33rd birthday and had lunch with my dear friend, Romi. She spoiled me with all kinds of gifts, but inside of my card was the best birthday of all. She had given me a "letter" of sorts on pretty paper called, "I Made Her". I didn't read it on my birthday, I read it the next day after going through the bag to empty it. The tears came as I read it, it was what my heart needed to hear.

I decided to share this with the ladies. Because I believe it's what every woman's heart needs to hear and feel. Romi, I wasn't lying when I said it was the best gift ever, I so needed it! I am going to frame it. Love you!

I MADE HER
I made her. She is different. She's 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. (Psalm 139:13-16)
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. (Psalm 139:17)
I made her pretty and not beautiful, because I knew her heart and knew she would be vain. I wanted her to search out her heart and to learn it would be Me in her that would make her beautiful and would draw friends to her. (1 Peter 3:3-5)
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 want her to turn to Me in her loneliness. Only because I need for her to lean to and depend on Me. I know her heart. I know if I had not made her like this, she would go her own way and forget about Me, her Creator. (Psalm 62:5-8)
I have given her many good and happy things because I love her. (Psalm 84:11, Romans 8:32)
Because I love her, I have seen her broken heart and the tears she has cried alone. I have cried with her and had a broken heart too. (Psalm 56:8)
Many times she has stumbled and fallen alone, only because she would not hold My Hand. So many lessons she has learned the hard way, because she would not listen to My Voice. (Isaiah 53:6)
She is mine. I made her then I bought her because I love her. (Romans 5:8)
I have to reshape and remold her, to renew in her what I want her to me. It has not been easy for her or for me. (Jeremiah 29:11)
I want her to be conformed to My Image. This high goal I have set for her because I love her. (2 Corinthians 2:14)
