You Are Beautiful And Who You Are Is Quite Enough

I’ve been studying to become a Crisis Counselor and also a trainer to teach TRE – Trauma Release Exercises.  Little did I realize two years ago that I would be putting these skills to personal use.  Over the past two and a half years I have been to three funerals, married and annulled, assaulted and abandoned, moved four times and have reoccurring bouts of chronic fatigue, and lymph system shut-downs! 

Statistically, I should be in a mental hospital or the grave!  Can I just say that I am so thankful that I serve  a risen Savior who has pulled me out of the darkness into the light.

For any of you out there that are depressed, sick and tired of being sick and tired, I can relate.  But, I have found in my 57 years of living on this planet that if you draw near to God, He will draw near to you. He will take the past hurts, traumas and trials and turn them into beautiful times.

Tonight, He reminded me who I was in Him and how beautiful I am to Him.  The words to a Song, Beautiful I read once is “Beautiful is who you are and who you are is quite enough!”  Isn’t it awesome that whether we are in a mansion on the highest hill or in a shack in the valley filled with dung, that the Creator of the universe thinks about us and cares what happens to us!

I watched a beautiful family pitch in to give a young man and his beautiful bride a beautiful barn wedding in the country. Her daddy spent several sleepless nights at the location to insure his “beautiful” daughter’s dream wedding would come true. Here she is taking that last walk as a single woman with her daddy! Isn’t she beautiful?Image“Beautiful”
Bethany Dillon

I was so unique
Now I feel skin deep
I count on the make-up to cover it all
Crying myself to sleep cause I cannot keep their attention
I thought I could be strong
But it’s killing me

Does someone hear my cry?
I’m dying for new life

[Chorus]
I want to be beautiful
Make you stand in awe
Look inside my heart,
and be amazed
I want to hear you say
Who I am is quite enough
Just want to be worthy of love
And beautiful

Sometimes I wish I was someone other than me
Fighting to make the mirror happy
Trying to find whatever is missing
Won’t you help me back to glory

[Chorus]

You make me beautiful
You make me stand in awe
You step inside my heart, and I am amazed
I love to hear You say
Who I am is quite enough
You make me worthy of love and beautiful

Jesus makes all things beautiful in HIS time.
