~ Even if your thighs jiggle when you walk.
~ Even if your hair lacks the luster you wish for.
~ Even if your eyes are set closer together than most.
~ Even if you snort when you laugh.
~ Even if you can’t run a mile.
~ Even if your fingers and toes are short and stubby.
~ Even if your artwork doesn’t win the prize or your writing doesn’t get published.
~ Even if you’re pigeon-toed, crossed-eyed, or knock-kneed.
~ Even if you can’t sing to save your life.
~ Even if you’re still single, afraid a marriage proposal won’t come.
~ Even if you’re unable to get pregnant and feel like a failure.
~ Even if you didn’t make the team or weren’t included in that group.
~ Even if your culinary skills are scary.
~ Even if your furniture has a layer of dust on every inch of it.
YOU are still worthy.
And while the world may look at those things and decide you’re not-good-enough… and the Enemy whispers, “What a loser”… and old tapes with painful messages play over-and-over-and-over again in your mind… and you beat yourself up with your own words of disappointment…
… Your value in the eyes of God never changes.
Because God created you on purpose — with detailed intention — and He delights in His masterpiece.
Here is the hard truth: You will never be enough for the world. You’ll never meet its standard of beauty (at least not for long). You’ll never be everything to anybody. And you’ll never measure up, fit in, or make everyone happy.
You will never be perfect.
Sweet one… quit trying.
Because… you are enough… just as God made you.
