For my pick of the week I want to share this awesome video I ran across online. It’s very compelling, and I hope you take the time to watch it. In case you’re not able to, I also included a transcript of the video below. But if you have time, please watch it. The video is more powerful than the words alone.
It does mention God, and I know we all have different beliefs. So even if God is not a part of your beliefs, pay attention to the underlying message. I think we are way too hard on ourselves and don’t realize how amazing we truly are on the INSIDE. That inner beauty and strength can be manifest on the outside and make your life whatever you choose it to be.
You are beautiful. You are smart. You are funny. You are kind. You are unique. You are worthy of love and affection. You are never too much, and you are always enough. You are precious. You are a diamond, a rose, a pearl, the most stunning of all God’s creation.
You are worth more than you could ever imagine. Worth more than the numbers on the scale or the hair product you use or the shoes you wear. More than how many girls wish they were you or how many guys wish they had you. More than the price tags on your clothes or the percentage on the top of your math test, or even the number of followers you have on twitter.
Your worth surpasses all early things, because in the eyes of the Lord God, you are loved and you are worth dying for. Regardless of who you think you are. Whether you model in a magazine, or you model pottery with grandma. Whether you are on the hot list or the not list. Whether you’re head cheerleader or a high school dropout. Whether you’re Miss Popular or you’ve never had anyone you could call a friend.
Whether you love yourself and love your life, or you can’t stand to look in the mirror and you feel as if everything in your life is falling apart. Whether you’re such a winner or you feel like the world’s biggest failure. Regardless of who you think you are, the reality is you deserve someone who would give up their life for you because you are powerful and strong and capable.
Read about the women in the bible. Esther. Ruth. Martha. Mary. These women changed the world forever. And inside of you, each and every one of you is a woman with that same power and that same strength and that same world changing capability. Your responsibility is to find that woman and set that woman free.
This is who you are. And any voices in your mind that try to tell you differently are from the enemy. And the next time you hear them, this is what you say, “Nuh-uh, not me, Satan. I am a daughter of the living God. Cherished, loved, and adored above all things, by the creator of all things, for the glory of him who is greater than all things. I am awesome.”
And please don’t you forget it.
