I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror.
What I saw today was different than any other day.
Today, I saw myself…saved by grace, beautiful, black, washed cleaned, eyes filled with hope and peace.
What caused the change?
I finally decided that there was One who was greater than I was.
One who promised me that He would wash me white as snow….
My only responsibility was to proclaim HIM, call HIM by His name…
Believe like I have never believed…. trust like I have never trusted.
I had to forgive, as I now understood that I was forgiven.
I had to love like I now understood that I was loved.
I had to extend mercy and grace, as I now understood that grace and mercy was mine.
What I see today is a girl of grace, kissed on the forehead by a Father who
Not only created me, but constructed me divinely for His purpose.
I see what I will be tomorrow, I see what I was in the past, and I see what I can be on this day.
I am a girl of grace fashioned in the image of the Creator, who makes me new each day.
Dear Creator, I except my commission as a girl of grace…. a daughter of yours. Destined for greatness.
Yes, I am a girl of grace. I now walk with my head high filled with the grace and mercy that was extended to me
due to a beneficent and merciful Creator.
