"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

GOD LOVES UGLY


Many of us were told lies growing up. As children we believed these lies. Into adulthood. Resulting in whom we became. Many of us suffer the results of shame, guilt and condemnation because of those lies. Desprately crying out to God, "why do You love me?"

Those of us who have been abused, wounded, broken, rejected, shamed, you will see yourself in Christa Black's testimony and lyrics. I know I do.

Her testimony and song ministered to me and I hope it ministers to you.

She pegged my mum to a tee in this video. She even mentioned what I am seeking, which is the 'revelation of God's love.'


God Loves Ugly

You said that I wasn't pretty
So I just believed you
And you said that I wasn't special
So I lived that way
With critical gazes and brutal amazement
And how my reflection could be so imperfect
With all of my blemishes, how could somebody want me?

[Chorus:]
But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way I see
Oh God takes ugly
And turns it into something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful
Cause you love me
Whoa, oh

I tried to clean up the outside
All shiny and new
Worked over time to thin up and look right
But inside I knew
That deep in the bottom were secrets I thought I could try to ignore
Old ghosts in my corridors
Never get tired of haunting the past that's in me

[Chorus:]
But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way I see
Oh God takes ugly
And turns it into to something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful
Cause you love me

Help me believe why you love me
When I know you see
You see everything
Help me believe why you love me
When I know you see
Inside and you still say I'm beautiful

You're telling me I'm beautiful
Your screaming out I'm beautiful
And I'm finding out I'm beautiful
You're making me so beautiful
And I can I'm beautiful
Cause you love me
Whoa, oh

  2. If anything is said to me that goes against what God says to me then I just believe it to be the devil with his lies. I am a new creation now, being born again of God's Holy Spirit. His voice is the only voice I need to hear, there is no need to have accusations from the old carnal mind or it's bad memories filling my new mind of Christ, we are instructed to 'take every thought into captivity' and to 'test the spirits.' The Lord is our source of thought and the battle is spiritual, we do not war with flesh and blood JBR. Always turn to the scripture for counseling, we can't get any better advice and comfort.

  7. Grace how lovely to read this and watch this. I know how hard it is when your mom fills you head with so many untruths and with me such mental and physical abuse was done that I felt I was very ugly inside and out. Seems you have felt the same but now know different. I agree what a wonderful testimony..Grace you are beautiful inside and out and God's child so your loved so very much.

    (((Hugs and Caring))).
