You are beautiful.
You are smart. You are funny.
You are kind. You are unique.
You are worthy of love and affection. You are never too much, and you are always enough. You are precious.
You are a diamond, a rose, a pearl, the most stunning of all God’s creation.
You are worth more than you could ever imagine worth more than the numbers on the scale
or the hair product you use or the shoes you wear
more than how many girls wish they were you or how many guys wish they had you
more than the price tags on your clothes or the percentage at the top of your math
test or even the number of followers you have on
Twitter. Your worth surpasses all earthly things,
because in the eyes of the Lord God, you are loved.
And you are worth dying for. Regardless of who you think you are
whether you model in a magazine or you model pottery with Grandma
whether you’re on the “hot list” or the “not list”
whether you’re head cheerleader or a high school dropout
whether you’re Miss Popular or you’ve never had anyone you could call
a friend whether you love yourself and love your life
or you can’t stand to look in the mirror and you feel as if everything in your life
is falling apart whether you’re such a winner
or you feel like the world’s biggest failure. Regardless of who you think you are, The reality is is that you deserve someone
who would give up their life for you because you are powerful
and strong and capable.
Read about the women in the Bible! Esther, Ruth, Martha, Mary,
these women changed the world forever. And inside of you, each and every one of you
is a woman with that same power, and that same strength,
and that same world-changing capability. And your responsibility is to find that woman
and to set that woman free. This is who you are.
And any voices in your mind that try and tell you differently
are from the Enemy, and the next time you hear them,
this is what you say. You say, “Nuh uh. Not me, Satan!
I am a daughter of the living God, cherished, loved, and adored above all things
by the Creator of all things for the glory of Him who is greater than all
things. I am awesome.”
And please. Don’t you forget it.
