I pray that I don’t see my difficulties and struggles as setbacks but only ways to grow and strengthen my ability to overcome. God’s grace is limitless and it costs nothing, He already paid the price. So why do we put a price tag on our worth. All we have to do is receive it. We see ourselves wounded but God sees us as mended! We tend to see ourselves as useless and think that God cannot use us but it is through our weakness, struggles and pain that He uses us the most. Often times I have felt unworthy, undeserving feeling too far gone for God’s love. I use to think my inner scars were beyond restoration but God promises that He will restore the years the locust have eaten.
“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten– the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm — my great army that I sent among you. Joel 2:25
I am a beautiful disaster but even so I know that my once prison life can help other’s to be set free. Many women in my life paved the way for me and I have learned through their stories that there is hope. My hope is that God will use my story in the same way!
