“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
I’ve had a couple girls talk to me about not being “good enough” or “cool enough” on instagram. That they don’t have the right “edits” or “facial expressions.” That they don’t have a “perfect body” or “smile.” Ohh boyyy, let me tell you. My heart melted and I literally almost started crying. I’ve actually had on my heart to make this post a while ago, but I wanted to search for the right words to write, for it to at least speak to the girls that wrote me these messages. Truth is, I’m sitting here struggling writing this because, girls don’t u know that you’re beautifully and wonderfully and perfectly made? God created you in the image he wanted you to be. He wants you. The king of heaven wants you. This is not what life is about. Instagram is Instagram. REAL LIFE IS REAL LIFE. At the end of the day we’re all humans created by God, NOT BY INSTAGRAM. & I can’t stress this enough because it’s true. This app could be deleted at anytime, and when that happens what will you do? We all need to realize that we need to be real. We don’t need to take 1 million pics just to get the “perfect picture to post.” Of course we all post the best highlights of our lives, but even those people struggle too . Because nobody is “perfect.” Everybody struggles in one way or another. Some people choose to share is with the web or not. We have to be real with ourselves, as well as everybody around us.
This post is for encouragement. It might seem harsh at first, but it actually saddens me to hear that some of u think you’re “not good enough” because you don’t have “enough followers.” At the end of the day we are who we are, and I sure hope we are as beautiful on the inside as we are on the outside. So let’s stop trying to have the perfect page. And encourage each other in growing deeper with God. I just want you guys to know that you’re all SUPER BEAUTIFUL. And oh my goshhhh, you’re so loved. God Loves you and I LOVE YOU! Remember, God chose U and made U unique, because you have something to offer to help the next person! your identity should be found in Jesus
