I made HER.

I made HER…

I made her…she is different. She’s unique.

With love, I formed her in her mother’s womb.

I fashioned her with great joy.

I remember with great pleasure, the day I created her.

(Psalm 139:13-16)

I love her smile. I love her crazy ways. I love to hear her laugh.

I love the silly things she says and does. She brings me great pleasure.

This is how I made her.

(Psalm 139:17)

I wanted her to search out her heart.

I wanted her to learn that it is ME in her that makes her beautiful…

And it is ME in her that others find precious.

(1 Peter 3:3-5)

I made her in such a way that she would need Me.

I make her a little more lonesome at times than she would like to be…

Only because I need for her to learn and depend on Me….

I know her heart, and I know if I had not made her like this,

She would go on her own chosen way and forget me…Her Creator.

(Psalm 62:5-8)

I love giving her things in her life that she enjoys,

And I protect her, even when she doesn’t know I’m there,

Because I love her.

(Psalm 84:11)

Because I love her, I have seen her broken heart.

The tears she thought she cried alone, I was there crying with her.

My heart was breaking too.

(Psalm 56:8)

Many times, she thought she stumbled and fell alone.

I was there, but she would not hold My Hand.

She learns so many lessons the hard way

Because so often, she refuses to listen to My voice…

(Isaiah 53:6)

So many times, I sit back

And sadly, I watch her go her merry way alone,

Only to have her, sad and broken, return to My open arms.

(Isaiah 62:2)

I am constantly reshaping her and molding her,

To renew her to the plans I have for her.

It hasn’t always been the easiest path.

(Jeremiah 29:11)

But I still want her conformed to My image…

I have set high goals for her,

Because I love her.

(II Corinthians 2:14)

I have gotten rid of everything she used to be,

And made her completely new.

(II Corinthians 5:17)

She thinks she knows what I have in store for her,

But my purpose is greater than she could ever imagine.

(Proverbs 19:21)

She has to wait on My timing,

But with Me by her side, she will soar above all of life’s storms.

(Isaiah 40:31)

But she is mine.

I bought her for a price much higher than she ever deserved.

And I did it gladly… Because I love her.

(Romans 5:8)

You won't find these translations of these Scripture verses anywhere else. I was introduced to this by a friend. I changed a few words from the original, and I have continued to add verses along as I read things in God's Word that directly speak to me. Personalizing His promises to me help me remember His Word. Please feel free to comment and add verses that speak to you that you think others will benefit from. (The picture on this post is me with my niece Katelyn. This was the first time we met.)

Random question--how do you upload pictures to your blog from the web? I wanted to add images from google images, but can't figure it out.
