who you are

i still think about it.
i still hate myself for it.
i still think i need to change because of it.
i still look at new diet fads, or “teatoxes”.
i still think i need to stop eating, or skip a couple meals.
i still think i need to change because of it.
because of what exactly?
because of this lie that the devil constantly throws at me that says I need to be skinnier & better looking in order for me to have any worth in this world.
 
we’re bombarded by it every day.
by magazine articles, by models, by media, by our friends, by people we look up to.
every way the devil could possibly get the idea that we’re not good enough into our heads, he does.
and it works doesn’t it?
thats why we all think we should give money to these diet companies, or why so many people suffer from anorexia or bulimia, or why we, God’s masterpieces, have this crazy idea that we should change ourselves because we ‘weren’t made right.’
i’m here to remind you, & myself, that we are loved, we are special, we are valued, we are beautiful,
we are wonderfully created
we
are
enough.
YOU ARE LOVED
Romans 8:37-39 ~~ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
YOU ARE SPECIAL
Jeremiah 1:5 ~~ Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.
YOU ARE VALUED
Luke 12:7 ~~ Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
Genesis 1:27 ~~ SO God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
YOU ARE ENOUGH
1 Peter 2:9 ~~ But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
 
 
enough of starving ourselves, enough of hating our bodies, enough of changing God’s beautiful creation.
you are wonderfully created !!
now live like it !
