No more questioning God’s plan. I am wonderfully and fearfully made, so when I look in the mirror I see beauty. My new 29 year old laugh lines are products of my overcoming and accomplishments. I get back up. I am a spiritual weapon for Christ. This means warfare, for the spirit. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, so I fear not.”
