To the Girl who is Tired of Trying; a Battle Between man & God

This post is for the girl who has become so consumed by what she’s supposed to be, that she is covering up who she really is.  Our society nourishes the idea that we must be accepted by others, and to do that, we usually try to fit in by changing who we are.  However, as we know God did no put us here for us to copy everyone else- he placed us in His kingdom to be UNIQUE!

the Battle of man and of God

It is so easy to get caught up in worldly possessions and ideas that have been constructed by man, that we easily can lose confidence in who we really are under all the makeup, all the clothes, and all the filters.  These things don’t have to be harmful, but what if you do this so often and so obsessively that you begin to lose confidence without these items, what do you do then?  If you can’t go out to dinner without your makeup or hair done because you won’t feel comfortable with yourself- let me ask you this; who’s acceptance are you valuing more?

❁     ❁     ❁

 

Who’s Acceptance do you Value?

Are you valuing the acceptance of man, or of God?  Are you valuing the acceptance of a fleeting and temporary creation, or the acceptance of our perfect creator who’s love is SO profound that it is unfading?  Please, as young woman in our generation I ask that you always remember that EVERY part of you was made in God’s perfect image!  Find confidence in God’s love for you!  He is proud to have you as His creation, so be proud to have Him as your creator!  The beauty He has made does not need to be concealed nor buried, for it is so beautiful that it should be forever cherished.

“Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord.” Psalm 45: 11 NIV

The Lord is ENTHRALLED in your beauty!  Rejoice in this everyday!  You are so beautiful, and you are His creation, I ask that you thank Him for that today and everyday.

*As a disclaimer I would like to remind any readers that this post is absolutely not to bash anyone who wears makeup, likes to dress up, or uses filters online!  I know I definitely partake in a few of those things myself… this is simply for the girl who has felt too pressured by society to change and has lost self-love, which is also a situation I have been in.  God loves you, and you are His creation, made wonderfully and fearfully in His image.
