In high school, I used to think it was all about being in the right friend group, having the best clothes, and always wanting to look the best. Oh how I was so wrong. I wanted attention. I wanted boys to think I was pretty. I wanted people to think I had my life all figured out. I wanted this and I wanted that, but what I did not realize was that first of all I was missing out on so dang much by always striving to be this person that I was not and secondly that it was perfectly fine to just be myself no matter how scary that might be. You want to know why…We have a Father in heaven who created each one of us just the way we are suppose to be and he did this for a purpose…How crazy is it to think that I would want to be someone who I was not just to “fit in.”
I think a lot of girls face this same struggle everyday. I just want it to be known that being uncomfortable and getting out of your comfort zone is what God challenges us to do each and everyday! Go against what society says. How boring would it be to have to be like everyone else. That was not God’s purpose. He created us in an image of him. How amazing is that. How amazing is it that he created us just how we are suppose to be… down to each freckle on our nose. Even though when I was in high school, I wanted to be someone who I was not, I have learned through the Word something very different and though I have struggled many times with this, God has opened my eyes to the truth.
“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.” ~Psalms 139:13-15
Do not conform.
Love yourself just as you are.
If you really knew me… You would know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made in the eyes of a Father that loves unconditionally, which allows me to be myself every day!
