I’m excited to share my own scarf story with you 🙂 Let me start by saying God has been talking to me about how He sees me (as He does with many of us). I’ve been going through deep inner healing for months now and it’s been a brutal, raw season. God’s written an amazing testimony in my life, but even though my poor choices have been redeemed for His glory they left plenty of scars on my heart and still very much influenced how I saw myself and felt God viewed me.
In a week when God was touching one of my deepest wounds, I got a call from a faithful Dyed4you customer who has now become a friend. She was ordering a couple scarves and one was a gift for someone – as she told me about this individual God began immediately downloading what the scarf was to look like, it’s name and it’s prophetic meaning. (I will pause to comment here that 90% of the time He does not do it that way, which is part of what made it so cool.)
When she was done telling me about it, she said she also felt that whatever God birthed was a word for me too. I was TOTALLY overwhelmed! What she didn’t know was God and I had already been talking about a new scarf and the one He’d just downloaded to me was my favorite color and was a PERFECT word for me! The name of my scarf is Flawless from Song of Solomon 4:7 “You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.”
I have been dyeing and wearing scarves for 4 years and never torn one once, but the first day I wore Flawless, it got torn. I was completely heartbroken because I LOVED my new scarf and was still receiving the word God was speaking to me through it. With determination, I sewed up the hole even though it looked like a big scar! My flawed Flawless.
Then God started speaking to me about it – He asked me if it was still beautiful… of course I answered it was! He asked then why I couldn’t believe how He could see me as beautiful despite my scars. (Makes me cry just typing that)
I love how He teaches us so gently… He is so good.
