PI Girls, as you know, I love reading God’s Word and I will be contributing a couple of articles a month on a “Bible study” topic for you. My prayer is that these pieces will deepen your faith, stir a hunger for more truth and spark an interest in other facets of your relationship with Christ.
Singer and songwriter Beckah Shae has reached many lives with her powerful music and her testimony. Shae has a blog on her website about her walk with God, and shares about her past struggles and false ideas about who she was and how God sees her. She wants to encourage YOU regarding your true identity! Read her full bio here.
FROM BECKAH SHAE TO YOU:
“….I once was shameful, a mess, yucky, dirty, filthy, so unworthy, with damaged dignity in all of my sins and faults and bruises. Self-pleasing, and blind to this LOVE that has now changed my life. A love that is too hard for me to comprehend. A LOVE that has taken my brokenness, shame and embarrassment, and has placed me high in a holy place seated with my Father! A LOVE that has called me the righteousness of God! A LOVE that has pardoned me, and has thrown my filth as far as the east is from the west, and no longer treats me as my sins deserve. A LOVE that has restored to me my Joy and has given me confidence again. A LOVE that sees me as worthy and valuable, royalty and precious. A LOVE that has revealed Mercy and Truth with the sweetest compassion I have ever known! A LOVE that would lay its own life down so I may live. A LOVE that compares to no other LOVE I will ever know.”
This is just a piece of Shae’s testimony on purity and how she came from a place of brokenness and was gracefully restored to righteousness. I encourage you to read the full blog. The message: ALL THINGS are possible with God! No matter where you are, no matter what has happened in the past, no matter what sin or mistake you may have committed. The cross covers all unrighteousness. We need to receive the free gift of salvation. If we repent and change our lifestyle in a way that honors God, He will shower us with His divine blessings, mercy and grace!
“…because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.” —Ephesians 2:4
“…To whoever is reading this…If you have been raped of your worth, or have already made a decision to give yourself to someone other than your covenant partner, I want you to know that God’s mercy and grace is waiting to wrap itself around you and give you this indescribable LOVE that I am sharing with you!!! … God’s LOVE is BIG enough… Much bigger than you could ever imagine. He’s just waiting to lavish His love upon you and reveal to you TRUE LOVE. GOD IS TRUE LOVE! (1 John 4:8) But anyone who does not love does not know God (for God is love).
“Once you receive this LOVE, it’s no longer a matter of Jesus needing to make a payment on behalf of your sins…because…HE ALREADY DID!! You MUST just RECEIVE THIS TRUTH and KNOW that you KNOW that you KNOW!! You have been redeemed!! (Isaiah 53)”
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
