The Real You, My Beloved: Seeing yourself Through God’s Eyes

by Michel Lanclos

Childhood sexual abuse. Abandoned by her father. These traumas caused Michel to have a distorted image of God, so she created a false image – a mask – to hide the image she saw in her mirror. Her identity was found in worldly things, sex, alcohol, gambling, and shopping. Her hateful words reflected her identity. This book reveals her journey of healing from brokenhearted to restored by Jesus Christ.

God removed her mask and uncovered her reality. She discovered God’s true image and her purpose in life. As you take this 14-day healing journey, you will walk through the process of unmasking as God uncovers places in your heart that need healing. He will reveal The Real You, My Beloved.

For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight, in love. Ephesians 1:4

After suffering from childhood sexual abuse, I struggled with identity issues. Working through this devotional led me to see who God has called me to be. This book helped me release my struggles, hurts and failures to God. As I began to trust Him more each day, I saw His great love for me. It was as though the author felt my deepest hidden pains. I am so grateful to have experienced this life changing devotional.
