“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” -Genesis 1:27
Dear Insecure Child,
I was you…..sometimes I am you. All those thoughts in your head – forget them. They aren’t true. You are beautiful. You are created in God’s image. God painted a self portrait when he made you. When you see yourself in the mirror, you should see a gorgeous creation of God. Easier said than done – I know. When the words of hatred pierce your heart, let them roll off your back. Though your face may have pimples, and you think you’re overweight, reflect on this verse. It may seem hard now, but you’ll brave the storm. You are a perfectly made imperfect(sinner) daughter/son of God.
P.S. The best people to talk to about these insecurities are moms and dads.
