To the Girl Who Feels Unworthy

To the Girl Who Feels Unworthy 

  

Do you ever just look in the mirror and wish for a different look? You wish your hair was longer or your face was skinnier, or your teeth were whiter? We are all guilty of picking ourselves apart and wishing we were just a little bit thinner or taller or whatever. Every now and then when I catch myself questioning my looks or even my self-worth, I take a step back. 

I realize how silly it is of me to question any part of me, because God made me. Not only did He carefully make me in my own unique way, but He made me in His image. Sometimes I think we judge and measure our worth by how much the world says we are worth. This leads into one of my favorite verses from 1st Peter 3:3-4 it reads, 

             “Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”  

God has made each and every one of use in our own unique way, but all in His image. While elaborate hairstyles and gold jewelry are nice, they should not define our self-worth. We should not think lesser of ourselves when we do not have these things, because the real prize is God’s love and salvation. With this we are Daughters of the King! Think about that for a second, you are royalty. You are loved and beautiful in every way.  

Not only should we not define ourselves by the materialistic things we do not have, but we shouldn’t question our worth by the physical features we do/do not have. You are God’s masterpiece, so do not ever question any part of yourself. So I challenge you to think positive and embrace the full potential God has blessed you with, and to remember this verse from Ephesians 2:10, “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
