"You are the finest, loveliest, tenderist, and most beautiful person I have ever known- and even that is an understatement." F. Scott Fitzgerald
You are beautiful. You are smart. You are unique. You are loved by God!! No matter what!!! Be bold. Be brave. Be a L I G H T in the D A R K N E S S!!
As girls in high school, or at any age, we try to "fit in" or be like others. We want to dress like her, act like her, look like her. But no, that is not how God designed our lives to be. We are made in H I S image! (Genesis 1:27) He has created us and made each of us unique! And we are far from perfect! Why waste time trying to be like others when you can be who God designed you to be. So do not worry about how you look. Do not worry about being alone! GOD HAS GOT YOUR BACK! You are SO loved by Him!
Most of the time the easy thing to do is to just blend in with the crowd. You aren't noticed. It's like you aren't even there. I understand the feeling. And it is painful. But being different, though it is hard sometimes, is WORTH IT!!! Do not worry about what others think. Don't rent space to them in your head! Though you will face persecution, gossip, and even lonliness, God is on YOUR side! Shower those who persecute you with K I N D N E S S. Do not seek their approval. Have confidence! Be proud of who you are and of who your God is! Wear your hair in that messy bun, your socks and Birks, your oversized sweater. Start your own trends. Cherish how unique you are. BE YOURSELF AND BE HAPPY! Represent Christ every day! Do not listen to those hateful comments, ugly gossips, or negative attitudes. Instead, P R A Y for those who persecute you. They are only jealous or bitter. Yes, it is hard to pray for those who hate you. But they are God's children too. God has called us to love one another. In John 15:17, God says, "This is My command. Love each other." 1 Corinthians 16:14 states, "Let all that you do be done in love."
So if you are treated differently because of your beliefs, who you hang out with, what you look like, L O V E others anyway, no matter how they treat you. But God will work in their lives and yours.
I pray that this will be an encouragement to the girls out there like me. 🌟 If you ever need prayers, girl to girl conversation, or just someone to talk to, PLEASE contact me! You are not alone and YOU are LOVED!!!
