alright ladies (&gentlemen if you’re reading!!!) lets talk about being good enough, and how every single one of you are good enough regardless of what social media or anyone else says. I know we all take a look at that Instagram Explore page and see the “perfect” instagram girls with #bodgoals #relationshipgoals and every other hashtag goals you can think of… so lets just get one thing straight NO ONE IS PERFECT. you’re not perfect, i am not perfect, that girl you follow on instgram isn’t perfect. don’t ever for one second think that you’re not cool enough, good enough, or pretty enough because you indeed are!!!!
1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
regardless of how “perfect” someones life may seem through your screen you have NO IDEA whats going on in their REAL day to day life. no one posts about their bad days, their insecurities, or their hardships but lets face it, we all have em. I want nothing more than for all of you to fall in love with who you are!!!!! DO IT. Fall in love with your crooked smile, beauty marks, and natural state. FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU!!! think abut how much better this world would be if we obsessed over the things we loved about ourselves instead of obsessing over your imperfection or other people you see on your screens. Theres all these “rules” of society that are so incredibly stupid like ” omg 2 posts in one day thats not allowed” POST ALLLL YOU WANT its your page and no one elses or the whole “oh i can’t double text him/her they’re going to think I’m desperate” &&&& IF THEY THINK THATS DESPERATE THEN THEY’RE NOT YOUR PERSON!!!! societal rules are dumb and change every time you refresh your twitter timeline. oh and lets get another thing straight, likes and followers don’t define how cool you are – 30 likes or 30,000 likes you’re only as cool as YOU think you are! there is so much more to life than being socially “famous”… Here are 5 things i hope you get out of this post
1. BE YOU
be the person you want to be, and nothing else. Post the pictures you want to post, and nothing less. be original – you are different like it says in Romans 12:2, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
2. YOURE WORTH MORE THAN YOUR ONLINE IMAGE
you have so many layers, and you’re more than a post. you are a human who has feelings and emotions so don’t get caught up in the numbers because thats not what life is about!
3. NO ONE WILL EVER BE PERFECT
no one can ever be perfect because truthfully perfection doesn’t really exist… if everyone has they’re one definition of perfection then no one is capable of being perfect for everyone
4. WE ALL DEAL WITH IT
we all, and i mean EVERYONE deals with imperfections and insecurities. we all have struggled or are struggling with acne, yellow teeth, or double chins so stop editing them as if they’re something that not everyone has
5. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL THE WAY GOD MADE YOU
He made you in His image. it doesn’t get much better than that.
——- know your worth. you are good enough for Him. fall in love with yourself ——–
