The Birth Mark

“I was born with these large birthmarks. I didn’t understand why God made me like this. I hated myself and who I saw in the mirror, so as A result I hid. I wore long sleeves and pants all the time until I was introduced to body makeup, and began to wear that to continue to cover up my multi-colored skin. I did this for years until I realized how much I was hurting myself and holding back the blessings of God. I now know that He designed me just as I am so that I can someday share my story of how I overcame, how I’ve come to embrace who I am, and how I’ve learned to love the skin I’m in…”
