You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!
"I hate how frizzy my hair is!"
"I can't get rid of this stupid fat!"
"I wish I was more beautiful like her..."
We have all said or heard someone say something like that. With all the pressure from the media these days, girls are almost never happy with themselves. I am guilty of complaining too!
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Psalm 139:14
Maybe you've heard that verse before and never thought about it or maybe you haven't at all, but it's saying God created you just the way He wanted you to be! There is no one else like you in the world. God created just the way you are, and He loves you with an everlasting love because you are His creation. Your Heavenly Father knit you together in your mothers womb and designed every exquisite detail about you. You are beautiful because you are a princess of the Most High!
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb." Psalm 139:13
If a friend gave you a painting that she had diligently worked on for weeks, yet you didn't think it was that pretty, would you complain to her about how bad it looked? No! Even though you may not care for it, you would graciously except the gift from her with a thankful heart.
It's like your body that God created for you. You are His work of art! And when you complain about how God has made you it's like saying "God, I don't think you made me quite the right way. There must have been a mistake." God doesn't make mistakes.
And of course, there is nothing wrong with trying to loose a few extra pounds or buying anti-frizz spray for your hair. But we have to remember that in our pop-culture that screams, "You have to look just like her to be attractive!", your Heavenly Father lovingly made His princess just the way he wanted her to be. So smile, beautiful girl! And have a blessed day! :)
