Why do we forget that we have a God who loves us even when we do not love ourselves? God doesn’t make trash and he’s never made a mistake. He created you in the image of him, but when we look in a mirror- we only see sin. Why is it that we cringe at our reflection, but God loves us as is. We run and hide because we don’t like what’s inside, but God sighs – because he hates seeing us in this bind. The devil is sneaky. Yes, he is sly. But God is love, and his mercies are not hidden in disguise. Look up, from the darkness that overwhelms your soul. You were created for more than to just cry alone. Lift your eyes into the one who gave his soul for you. His blood was pure and his love is to. Take his hand , and he will lift you up. He rebukes the devil, in the name of Father, Spirit and Son. For you are special. Don’t you understand? He gave up his crown, to live as man. Your worth more than the rubies and Diamonds combine. Even though you think your not worth a dime. Look in the mirror- what do you see? For God smiles, your perfect, even though you never think you’ll be. Trust in the Lord, for He is good. And maybe you will understand his unending grace, his unending love. So next time you feel like your ten feet deep, look up to the only one who’s watching out for you and me. Cry out his name, and he will come. He’s the only one who cares enough to “send his only son.”. Today you may be drowning, tomorrow made new. He never gives up on me- or you. What defines you? If someone asked… Would you Be able to tell the task. That you belong to Jesus, and you draw near to him. Or will shrug your shoulders , and feel you heart sink within. You are his, that’s why he died. It wasn’t for fun, wasn’t for pleasure- if so we should die. Look up to the one who is on his throne. Cast your cares upon him- let him say, “It is done!”.

Hey & welcome to my blog!
A little about me:
I am Marli Wright. I am the writer of Just Being Marli. I am also the owner of Marli Visuals as well. I am from a small town in Southeastern Oklahoma. I am not a fancy writer by no means, but if you understand it than its a God thing.
A little about this page:
Just Being Marli was created by me for many reasons. It all started on Instagram where I hashtaged #JustBeingMarli with photos of me or quotes that I had written. Many people started to comment on it loving the idea.
A little about this blog:
This blog is to inspire people. I and literally, "Just Being Marli.". God created me to be me. He has plans for me, and I believe this is one of them. I feel like I am called to write each post and that is what I strive to do. I am a Christian and I do fail often. This blog is just a place where I come to write verses and thoughts that have helped me understand God better. I do not have all the answers & I won't act like I do. However if you have any questions; please ask. If I don't know the answer I will try and find it for you.
What causes me to write:
June of 2017 I became a mom to a wonderful baby boy Rhett. In 13 hours I learned about love, grief, life, & death. After having to give my son back to God, my faith was tested. I write because I know hurt. I write because I know others know this pain and I want to bring hope. I also write, because I feel God has made me to do so. Most of all, because my son loved and that’s all he knew. Love. Pure innocence love. And he know is whole and healthy in heaven. I want to share that innocence God felt love with others through writing. That is what inspires me most.
In 2019 God gave us a beautiful Rainbow baby girl, we named Selah. God showed us his promises are true and he never breaks them. He showed me how to have joy and hope again. And because of Gods love and grace; I have two beautiful babies.
This blog may have started as a hashtag, but now it has meaning that is deeper than even I imagined.
