Happy Friday my beautiful SparkFriends! emoticon
I've been missing you! Today's Freestyle Friday Poem I actually wrote Wednesday. It cams so quick I decided I just had to post it for today. If you see a different title than "FREE AT LAST!" I covet your suggestions. This poem is about the perception I had of myself because others. As a child those perceptions of me from other people became rooted inside of me and I hated myself for too long. Sometimes we allow people's opinions to tangle our minds and void what God said about us. We ARE fearfully and wondrously made! He calls us GOOD! All I could see was WEIGHT! Regardless we are MORE than our OUTER appearance. If we are not HEALTHY inside...God IN You...we are DEAD. NEVER allow PEOPLE'S opinions to set your WORTH! Our Father called us WORTHY of the BLOOD of JESUS! Embrace your TRUE beauty TODAY!


Don’t judge me by my past…
For now I’m free at last…
For too long-
I felt all alone;
I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin-
No one wanted to be my friend…
But never again!
Because of Jesus I have a Friend-
Who sticks closer than any other…
I don’t need Another…
As compassionate as He-
Whose Blood set me free…
From the stigma pouring from man’s eyes…
For so long I cried-
Where is my help?
I hated myself!
Lied to by Satan…
He was waiting-
For me to fail…
Land in hell;
I shake my head…
I was dead-
In sin and pain…
Which no longer remains;
I’m free indeed…
Destined to succeed…
In whatever I set my hands to do…
One of the few…
Lifted up and out and into…
A brand New-
I saw the Light-
Of His Love…
I’m reigning from Above…
With Him seated on the Right…
I’m always in Their Sight;
What more shall I say?
Jesus Is My Only Way!
By Deborah Edwards 10/16/13

This is me and my lil cousin. Those were the days of double everything. Like two specials from Tastee Freeze, two candy bars, two diet pops or two Pizza burgers. FOOD was my BEST FRIEND. It gave me what I couldn't get from PEOPLE. Of course,
some reached out but I pushed them away,(even boys) thinking, "Can't they see how FAT and UGLY I am?!"


Dear Lord deliver EVERY child that's having these types of thoughts in their minds in Jesus Name! May they SEE themselves how YOU see them. Made in YOUR Image and for YOUR Glory! In Jesus' Name!

You know God loves you! I love you! AND Jesus IS Lord!
Enjoy today!

    emoticon Deb! emoticon Isn't it amazing how we allow another's opinion to define who we are instead of looking within to the person that God created us to be? For so long I allowed others to dictate what I did and who I was. I didn't celebrate who God created me to be until late in my adult life. But He wants us to live authentically in who He made us, not by what others think of us. Thank God, I'm free at last!

    I believe many of us who have had a lifelong history of fighting weight can identify with your words. Sometimes the words we tell ourselves are crueler than any we would say to another. It is sad that some children are cruel to others and it is so difficult for youth with weight issues. Hopefully, your words can inspire others.

    Love it, and the title works! We ARE free, in His holy, precious Name.

    And, Deb, yes -- the girl in the photo is beautiful! Praise the Lord that she can finally see it!

    May your weekend be blessed!
