Five Minute Friday :: beyond

Beyond myself I am Strong. Radiant. Beautiful.

Beyond myself I am Gentle. Thoughtful. Kind.

Beyond myself I am Perfect.

He who made me lives inside of me.

He who made me just-as-I-am is pleased with *Who* I am Today.

Far too often I See myself as less than I am.

Fear pokes her ugly head inside my days, burrows a hole and settles in while I am awake. She tells me I am Less Than and she shines a flashlight on evidence that it may be true.

Beyond fear, Truth shines brighter making me Whole. Free. {Grace}-full.
