Yesterday evening, The Loft, our church’s ministry to teenage girls, met. I always love Loft nights, because it’s a chance to show the love of Christ to teen girls in our community. Our leader, Treva, never lets a Loft night go by without telling the girls they are loved by their Creator. It’s something they need to hear. It’s something we all need to hear.
How many times have you looked in the mirror and called yourself awkward? Not good enough? Worthless? Fat? Ugly?
I know I’ve used all of those words on myself. They’re harsh. If I ever heard someone calling my daughter any of those words, I’d be sure to put that person in her place, and I’d do it quickly.
Yet, as women, we feel perfectly justified in speaking those words about ourselves.
Don’t. Just don’t.
In the eyes of your Creator, you are loved. Even if:
You feel awkward.
You don’t feel like you measure up.
You don’t feel as if you have anything to add to the world.
Your body type doesn’t conform to the world’s definition of beauty.
You are loved,
You. Are. Loved.
You are known by your God. And you are loved by your King. Rest in that today.
