You are enough! Too many women, in our culture believe they are not enough: not skinny enough, smart enough, popular enough, good enough, not enough for anyone! It’s a lie that our culture has been feeding us for years through images of “perfect” models, they are airbrushed, “perfect” smart girls, “perfect” popular girls and the list goes on.
NO ONE IS PERFECT!! Who defined perfect to begin with in our culture? Trends change and so does “perfect” from time to time. The truth is there is no such thing as perfection!!
God created each of us in the image of the creator both female and male, God created us. God didn’t create us to weigh 100 pounds, be 6′ tall, and wear a size 0! God created us uniquely and beautifully different. We are not supposed to look like someone else. We have our own beautiful differences from our outward beauty, and features, to our talents and passions.
We should always strive to live into the abundant life that God created us to live. We should live fully in the understanding that we were loved into existence to be us. We are enough! When we can look in the mirror, within our souls, and accept who we are then we are starting to live the life God wants us to live. When we can love ourselves then we can begin to love others exactly how they are. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not enough. You are enough and you are loved beyond words.
