This One's for the Girls
Posted On 06/04/2011 16:04:33 by InLoveWithChrist

What do we normally do when we wake up in the morning..  We get up and look in the mirror. We try to decide what clothes we want to wear depending on how they look on us.  We fight a war inside our head with ourselves. We think we're too fat, too ugly, and we feel horrible. Everyday thoughts in our head become more annoying whenever we someone whose thin and looks amazing, or when we read a magazine. We focus on their self image and try to become like them by dieting, exercising and then if it fails we get upset and its back to square one. Hating ourselves because we feel unpretty. This is normal; life for a teenage girl, actually any girl.
What if we knew we were accepted the way we are? What if you knew someone doesn't care what you look like and they love you enough to die for you? Its true :). In the Bible it says MULTIPLE times that Jesus loves us all. But a lot of people don't believe it. In John 3:16 NIV it says: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and ONLY son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life." God sent his son to DIE for us, because he loves us no matter what our appearance. He created us and we are all beautifully and wonderfully made girls :). You're probably thinking who is this girl trying to tell us all this, what does she know? She's probably just some Christian trying to sell God to us.. I am a Christian, but I am not selling you God. He can't be sold. All I am doing is simply telling you what I needed to know and understand. I am never satisfied with my appearance, My hairs always too curly, frizzy and I could afford to lose a few pounds and many more things are CONSTANTLY running through my head. I am never satisfied with myself because I want to be like everyone else around me. But now I'm starting to realize that even though I don't like the way I look more then half the time, there's someone who doesn't care what I look like, and he loves me anyway. To him I am beautiful and I don't need approval of others to think so.

One way we can all feel more beautiful is by reading our Bible. How can this help us? If we read through it, God tells us over and over again how beautiful we are and how much he loves us. Once we understand this, things like how how much weight we think we should lose, slowly disappears. We just have to take it one step at a time. Girls remember this: Someone ACCEPTS and LOVES you even when you don't love yourself. YOU are BEAUTIFUL no matter what you look like, no matter how old you are,no matter your dress size. :)

Thank you :). I hope they will too. All women and girls have insecurities about their appearance, but wile its a major thing to us, God doesn't care. He loves us anyway. I just pray more girls would understand that.
