I keep playing the same song over and over on repeat this morning. I heard it the other day while driving in the car by myself. I was on my way home, feeling like the day had completely destroyed me with all of the frustrations. This song came on the radio, and I cried and cried, so refreshed, reminded, and fulfilled with truths I can’t ignore.
Blameless, You call me Holy. Forgiven, You call me righteous and free. Spotless, You call me worthy. I am Your child, chosen, I am Yours.
That is what Christ does for us. He calls us out and reclaims us.
I know I’ve got a lot of rough feelings in my past. I have issues that took so much time to overcome. Being a woman is no walk in the park, often difficult to discern when our feelings run wild, over thinking any and everything, and feeling the pressure to look and behave in a certain way that is more embraced by the world. I am right there too. But that’s the beauty of Christ. That’s the importance of Jesus. He reclaims us. All of our issues, feelings, over thinking, pressures? They don’t exist with Jesus. They can’t coexist with Jesus. It isn’t easy being a woman, but really, it isn’t easy being human. Sister, we certainly don’t have to live in a way that honors this world.
Blameless. Holy. Forgiven. Righteous. Free. Spotless. Worthy. Chosen. His child.
Say it for yourself. God isn’t giving out these names for only those who do good, for those who don’t have issues, for those who aren’t plagued with the weight of expectations. Jesus takes your place. Your place. And all of those names? They belong to you. He has reclaimed you.
