I’m Jesus’s Girl

previously posted on The Unraveling!

I’m Jesus’s girl.

Even though I mess up, a lot.

Even though I struggle with being selfish.

Even though I don’t always go to church.

Even though my anger sometimes gets the best of me.

Even though I sin, Every. Single. Day. Even when I try so hard not to.

Even though I’ve made some really bad decisions.

Even though I don’t always turn to Him first.

Even though I struggle with having idols.

Even though I question Him sometimes.

Even still, I’m Jesus’s girl.

Because I’ve met Him and I know Him.

Because He pursues me.

Because I’ve been healed by Him.

Because I do my best to follow His calling for me.

Because His kindness has led me to repentance.

Because I know I’m made in His image.

Because I experience His love and forgiveness daily.

Because despite my failures, I try to live my life for Him.

I’m so far from perfect but thankfully He fills in those gaps with His perfection.

He calls me to a beautiful life with Him. 

And now that I know Him and I’ve experienced him, I could never go back. 

Even with all my failures, even in my sin, I’m His girl. 

And so are you. 

No one gets to take that away from you, even if they try. It’s not up to them, never will be.

If you’re human, He created you. He doesn’t make mistakes, but He does make good things. Things He knows the world needs.

He had you in mind long ago. 

You are His.

Me too.

  1. I need some guidance on a situation and felt the need to reach out. About 5 months ago I went to a football game with my dad and met a guy that my dad’s good friend at work really wanted us to meet. He was tall, the most handsome guy I’ve ever seen and close to my age. He literally ended my celebrity crush. I woke up feeling ill that morning convinced I was not going, but I felt better after school as the day went on and decided to go. When I first met him, something spoke to me that he was my future husband. It was feelings I’ve NEVER felt for a guy before. I didn’t actually hear anything, but something was telling me that he’s my future husband. It was a gut feeling couldn’t ignore. I was in denial. Like for real God? but then things started to click between what I knew about him and my personal life. It’s not just a bunch of coincidences like I thought it was. When I was in the 11th grade I swore to my friends at lunch during an innocent conversation about our future spouses that I could NEVER be an army wife… well he had on an army jacket with the exact same logo as the army pin on my backpack I got on vacation to Washington D.C. 5 years prior. I also found a book in the back of my closest with nearly everything you need to know about the military. I was given it around the same time I got that army pin, but let it collect dust because I never wanted to join the army or had imediate family who served. Only extended family did. All throughout high school my friends had some sort of military affiliation. Mainly through JROTC or had close family who served. My best friend’s parents both served in the military and she’s trying to get into the airforce herself. I tried to get over him and pretend like I never met him before, but I haven’t been able to get him out of my head since then. The only problem is that I met him once and never again. We didn’t even have a full conversation, but he had a LONG conversation with my dad since they both LOVE sports. They hit it off pretty well with each other that night. I also feel that God is telling me to wait and that it’s just not the right time. My problem is that I would like to get to know him now, but it’s not God’s timing. I lost faith in what I was told because it didn’t happen fast enough and I tried to apply my own logic to the situation. God’s timing is always best♥️ please pray🙏🏾 for me as I try to strengthen my faith in God during this difficult time. I need some guidance on this because what I was told doesn’t match up with my current circumstances. Should I keep having faith in this or let it go? P.S. I’m sorry for the long question.

    1. This is Lei. Sorry for the confusion. I rarely ever comment on blogs lol. I accidentally put my first name on this comment. Both comments are from me.
