Imperfect Prose Link-up: The Journey

We are born in different families and spaces
But all begin at the same place
As little girls
Wanting to be loved
Wanting to valued
Longing for approval
To be told that we are beautiful
And that we matter

It is true that we are not all given these gifts from those God designed to care for us
Even though we all deserve them
And this lack often gives us a distorted view of who we really are
But there is One who knows who we really are
And longs to reveal our true selves to us

We start at the same place, as little girls
Embarking on the journey to womanhood
However, here in this room
We are at different places in our journey
But we are held in the same hand
The hand of our loving Father
Who declares that we are His beloved
Precious in His sight
Rare jewels, priceless
Capable of being purchased only by His Blood
But capable of being sold carelessly for little or nothing

We all start at the same place, as little girls
Embarking on the journey to womanhood
But let the womanhood we strive for
Be the one that He designed
One in which we live for His glory
One in which we are vessels sanctified for His use
One in which we accept and walk in His favor
One in which we fall but do not stay down
One in which we rely on His strength
One in which we live lives of total surrender to Him
 
We are born in different families and spaces
But all begin at the same place
As little girls
Wanting to be loved
Wanting to valued
And sisters … we are

By the King of kings, and Lord of lords
