"Damaged Goods?"

When looking in the mirror day after day do you wonder what others see of you? If they see that fluorescent sign shining on your head “damaged goods”. You know that feeling that everyone knows that some time in your life you were messed with as a kid or that your childhood wasn’t that of a normal child’s. You get that feeling daily that the world is rejecting you and you can’t do a thing about it to stop? Well there are a few who actually understand what that feels like, why because they feel the same way. But there is hope; there is some one who will never reject you. No matter what may have happen to you. You could have been held hostage for a few days, or been emotionally traumatized, something as simple or very catastrophic. But this person doesn’t see any of that, what does he see what is in your heart. He sees your soul and if it is pure he looks past your emotional scars, you fallen tears, your troubled heart. He is there to comfort you when everyone has turned their back on you. When you are there alone and need a shoulder to cry on. He is there in the darkest hour when you are about to pull that trigger or make that final cut. He is there waiting for you to turn to him. All you have to do is to take his hand and he will comfort you in the best way that no one can ever do. He can take that pain from you. He can heal that broken heart. He can make all things right. Why because he is the Almighty. Nothing is to big nor to small for him to handle. You may think that you are at the end of your rope. I am sure that several have my self included. But all you have to do is to talk with him and he will take it from you and handle it. That is something about feeling like you are damaged goods, to him you aren’t. You are the most precious thing to him. He loves us greatly; he wraps his loving arms around us and protects us from harm. He shields us from danger, he loves us unconditionally. He will never leave us nor forsake us. All we have to do it to come to him. Tell him our problems ask for forgiveness and he will take it all. I can’t tell you how many times I have came to him with tears in my eyes because of something that was done to me and ask him to help me understand it all. There are several times I felt him comfort me and it is just a great weight being lifted from my soul. There are times when I was left alone and didn’t know what to do I felt lost a great sense of abandonment and didn’t know where to turn. All I had to do was to fall to my knees and he was there. When things got rough and this one walk out or that one didn’t want to be a father I looked for him to comfort me and my daughter. “Damaged Goods” I felt was stamped on my forehead because I couldn’t understand what was wrong with me why things I thought were great never seem to be in the cards for me. So after many times of me losing this friend of that person… it was plain to see that maybe it was me. Well… it took some one very close to me to help me understand that not everything is me. No matter how I may feel that I’m just a screwed up person that it’s not always me. Now do I believe it? Yes, some what. Why is it hard for me to believe , because after years of conditioning ones self that things are my fault it is hard to just drop that and listen to what God has sent through someone. After of years looking at my body one which I loathe because it is scared or to thin or something else that I may not like I feel damaged. But that still doesn’t stop me from wondering if I wasn’t so “damaged” would things have worked out differently for me or what?. So the next time you see your self as damaged stop and think what does GOD think of you?.. Does he see you as “damaged” or does he see you as some one he loves and care for unconditionally?
