The Naked Truth

“I am trying to pour out my new wine to you my child, but you have to let me take control. Control of your life. Control of the hurt and pain of your past. Control of the fear of facing the truth. Fear of what you look like naked, stripped bare of all you have built, exposed for all to see. You need to face yourself naked first. You need to see yourself as intimately you. You need to see what you really look like. Just you. Nothing else. No hiding, no coverings, just you. Then I can clothe you. You don’t need to clothe yourself in the things that are frail and will break down and waste away, but I will clothe you, with my love, from my blood and sacrifice. I will clothe you in lasting love, lasting security, lasting identity, lasting fruitfulness. I will clothe you if you come to me. Lay your fig leaves at my feet – your attempts to hide yourself when you felt the most shame. When you thought your nakedness was ugly, unworthy, when you felt vulnerable because the truth was exposed to you.

But my truth is that you are beautiful. Your nakedness is utterly beautiful, because it is exactly who I created. There is nothing to be ashamed about, I created you and your life the way I wanted it to be. I created you as my perfect child, in your purist and rawest form. That is who I love. That is who you are. And that is who you are going to be from this point forward. I am rebuilding you. My way. My life for you. 

Your nakedness is utterly beautiful, because it is exactly who I created

Continue to hand the control over to me. Whenever you feel out of control, stressed, overwhelmed, like you’re failing, that is when you need to surrender control to me, because that is when you are trying to take control. My control won’t cause you stress, because I will only produce peace. When I am in control you will never fail, because I will never fail you. I cannot fail. You can, in your humanness and weakness and striving and owned strength, but I will never fail you. When you’re out of control, hand the reins back to me, and I will lead you forward. You will love because I am love, and I am in you. I am producing my fruit in you, my fruit of love, my lasting fruit, and the fruit I need you to take to my broken, hurting world, my love.

Love never fails. Love never gives up. Love endures forever. Rest in my love. Surrender control and I will nourish and empower you with my love. My love strengthens, and endures, and empowers and produces my fruit. LOVE! “
