“HE HEALS the wounds of every shattered heart.”Psalm 147:3
Last time, we left of at where I was sick and tired and decided to reach out to both my mum and God.
This was a trying moment for me as it was when I was faced with the reality that I was indeed a broken person: a person who had been living a lie and had been lying to themselves for close to 3 years!!!
I remember vividly crying while seated on an arm chair as reality hit and I reached out to God. Words could not voice what was going through my mind and heart but I sensed God’s presence right there.
And that’s the thing with God! He does not despise a broken and contrite heart & spirit (Psalm 51:17), and when we can’t voice our hurt, our pain, our brokenness, God sees our pain and hears the cry of our heart and he reaches down to meet us where we’re at to comfort us, to help us move forward.
And how does God do that??
It’s because He was a man over 2000 years ago and he went through a lot; physically and emotionally that Paul says in Hebrews 4:15 that we do not have a High Priest who is unable to sympathize and understand our weaknesses and temptations, but One who has been tempted [knowing exactly how it feels to be human], in every respect as we are….“- He knows what it feels like – He knows the pain, the hurt, the brokenness and he meets us in our pain & sorrows.
It was as if my heart was asking God, “What do I do?” and I heard God clearly say “We’re going to break this stronghold of insecurity and low self-esteem over you” and truly that’s what He did. It wasn’t instant neither did it happen immediately, as in the cases of various deliverances.
Mine took some time, and it’s not because of the saying that ‘time heals wounds’. No.
It’s because God was taking his time to uproot every lie, every seed that had been planted deep within the soils of my heart and spirit by me, by other people and by listening to the enemy. He was breaking every chain that resulted from believing those lies that kept me bound and prohibited me from moving forward. He was taking His time to heal my soul that was broken because of the lies and taking time to make it new and whole again.
God was taking His time to teach me and show me what He thought about me, what His word said about me and it was beautiful. Being held in the potter’s hand and letting him mould you and speak life into you as he also teaches you to hear and listen to the right things- the things that will grow you, flourish you and enable you to become all that he desires dor you to be.
He calls me BEAUTIFUL.
He calls me BELOVED and today He calls you the exact same thing.
This process was a life changing process for me as I intentionally made the choice that I was laying down insecurity and I wouldn’t pick it up again. The devil had me wrapped up in his lies but no more.
And you can make that exact same choice. Right now, if that is what is troubling you; call on the name of Jesus and let him come in and break the chains and the negative perspectives that hold you.

But how did this lead me to where we’re at right now? This blog, this community with you reading this post?
The Birth of UnScripted
As time went, I had a strong desire to share my story, share what I had been through and how I had walked with God to the other side of the struggle of insecurity . A strong desire to help young ladies, to mentor them, to walk with them and be that friend, sister and accountability partner through their journey of life and walk of salvation.
A desire to tell the young ladies who may be struggling with insecurity or whatever problem there is that Jesus is answer! I may not have all the answers; we may not have all the answers but God does! This God who created you and me has the answers and wants us to come together, lay down our masks and pretenses, confess our sins one to another so that we may gain healing and restoration (James 5:16).
No guilt. No shame. Just us coming together, humbling & submitting ourselves at Jesus’ feet so we may learn from Him; for His yoke is easy and His burden is light (Matthew 11:30).
That is what UnScripted is all about: A community for young ladies; a Sisterhood of women pursuing walk God and walking with one another.
