Today, looking towards Cinco de Mayo, I celebrate my Escape and Emancipation from the Old Testament, because the differences are so dramatic. Today’s as good as any other day to celebrate.
ME BEFORE ESCAPE AND EMANCIPATION
Spiritual Sadsack and Religious addict
Professional Perfectionist and Failure
Afraid of Everything and Everyone
Heroine of victim Story
Approval Junky and Poll-taker
Judged by Everyone
Arrogant with an inferiority complex
ME AFTER ESCAPE AND EMANCIPATION
Chainless and Shameless
God’s precious child
Right-Sized compared to fellow man
The best and most wonderful part of this process is that I am no longer ashamed. I am not ashamed of me, because I am imperfect. I celebrate that fact because God created me to be imperfect on purpose! He created me that way so that I would never stop coming to him for guidance, help, strength, wisdom, or forgiveness of myself and others. I will never stop needing or drawing ever closer to my creator because he created me and us as a gift to himself. It took me so long to take this concept in. I will never stop growing, blooming and my roots will never stop reaching closer and closer towards the source of everything.
A couple of years ago I suffered a very severe concussion in a car accident. In some ways, I am not the same. But, not this, nor anything else can ever tear me from the love of my creator- ever.
I am undamned. Nothing can stop me from his will, his path, his peace that passes all understanding. Nothing.
