I look in the mirror, I hate who I see.
this can not be me.
Lord, tell me who do You see?
Through Your eyes, can she arise?
Can she break free?

Tossing and turning,
everything is blurry.
Is there a way out?
Is the hole to deep?
Can I crawl out?
or can You lift me?

In Your hands I lay my everything
In Your guidance I walk a new path
With Your love, I start anew.
In Your perfect plan, I began.


Very well written sis.
An close self inspection can be needed and at the same time genearlly very painful.
Just remember you are a new creature in Christ and old things have passed away. By faith we read His Word and begin to understand we are not what or who we perceive ourselves to be but in Christ we are what He says we are. Like Peter who sunk when He looked at the circumstances (the wind and waves) but walked right over those smae waves when his focus was on Jesus.

Try reading this putting your name in the blanks and believing God at what He says:

Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen --- in him before the foundation of the world, that --- should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Eph 1:5 Having predestinated --- unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made --- accepted in the beloved.
Eph 1:7 In whom --- have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Eph 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward --- in all wisdom and prudence;
Eph 1:9 Having made known unto --- the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
Eph 1:11 In whom also --- have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
Eph 1:12 That --- should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
Eph 1:13 In whom --- also trusted, after that --- heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that --- believed, --- were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,
Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of --- inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Eph 1:15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints,
Eph 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for ---, making mention of you in my prayers;
Eph 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto --- the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Eph 1:18 The eyes of --- understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us --- who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Eph 1:21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
Eph 1:22 And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
Eph 1:23 Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
