The Beauty of Flawed

We I was just a little girl, I thought the birthmark I had on my throat was a stain and I did my best to get rid of it, until my mother explained what it was and that my beauty mark was part of me. No amount of wiping would make it disappear.

Through the years, I made peace with “my flaw”, as I thought of it. Now, I rarely ever think about it. Sometimes, I’ll catch someone staring and I’ll wonder what they’re looking at until I remember.

Ecclesiastes 7:20, says Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who continually does good and who never sins.

Since sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, we are all flawed beings. We live in a flawed world that is slowly fading away.

1 John 2: 17, says, And this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

Thankfully, God knows all about our flaws and He loves us anyway. He knew that we could never be “good enough” to save ourselves, and so He created the perfect plan of salvation. One so simple that all we have to do is accept His gift of salvation, believe Jesus died for our sins, and we will be saved. Our flaws are wiped away in God’s site.

Psalm 103: 12 says, As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.   

Isn’t that amazing. No matter how flawed we are, we are washed clean by the precious blood of Jesus!

Hallelujah! He turns our flaws into something beautiful.

Romans 8:28 – And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

All the best…
