A Crown of Beauty
Good Morning Beauties!
The post for today is one that I wrestle with a lot, whether I want to share it, whether it's to personal but it's been my moto lately to speak up so leading by example shall we?
So a while back I shared about my family trouble, I Have been separated from my husband for quite some time now, and ever since he left it's like I felt naked, like missing a limb which accurate because it's says the two shall become one some when a 1 turns 2 again there's a gonna a tears or a missing piece.
I never admit to that because it makes me sound weak and needy, but it the truth, with that said. I haven't been anywhere ever since, especially if it's something that requires a date. I feel ashamed even walking into church by myself, I feel exposed like everybody can see my loneliness, like people can see the huge hole.
My choir have these annual balls, last year I didn't go, for the fore-mention reasons, this year I said I wasn't going and I had no intention of dressing up and go a ball.
Princess goes to ball... either to meet their prince charming or with their prince charming, I'm neither so why would I go to a ball?
As I drill myself in my usual dark hole. Quietly in my mind I heard
"...He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning..." Isaiah 61:3
Then I remember this has already happened!
He did gave me a crown of beauty,
He did lift my head Ps 3:3,
He calls me his bride Rev 17:9,
He never leaves me nor forsake me Heb 13:5,
He says I'm beautiful Eph 5:27,
He says I'm never alone, He says He loves me Rom 8:38!
I am already a princess! my king already came and rescue me, I have a crown already!
So I dust myself off, tighten up my corset, got dress, wear my crown and went to the ball!
Sometimes it's just a cute outfit sometimes it's a deep meaningful story.
So that's the story behind the crown!
