My heart goes out to those young women who simply are not satisfied with the way they look. I can relate. I used to be where you are. I didn’t like the fact that I was born with cerebral palsy, that I’m skinny, or the fact
I’m short even.
I’ve come to accept the way I am
The bible says that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. If anybody else doesn’t think you’re beautiful, God thinks your beautiful. He’s the one that created you. He didn’t make a single mistake when he made you.
And me realizing that made me accept the fact that I do have cerebral palsy, I’m skinny, and short. But once I got passed all that I can see that Jesus makes all things new. The old has passed, and the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).
I used to ask God why I was born with cerebral Palsy
Now I use my legs for his glory by dancing
I used to not like being skinny
But I’ve learned that it’s not always going to be this way. My body is going to change as I get older. God is more than able to do things with my body that I never thought possible. I’m truly believing him for that.
I used to not like being short
I have no true explanation for this. I’ve just learned to live it. I’m not going to get any taller, so I might as well just accept it for what it is.
I’VE LEARNED TO TRUST HIM WITH MY BODY
And if I can’t trust Him with my body, how will I ever be able to trust my future husband with my body.
You know that saying, “You can’t love someone else until you learn to love yourself?” Well, it’s true. When I was in my years of dissatisfaction I wanted revenge. I wanted people to hurt just as I did. But once I came to Christ none of that was necessary anymore. God showed me his love to pour out on
others who are just as insecure as I was.
Thankfully, the Lord has delivered me from all of that. The next time you’re feeling insecure remember God’s love for you. He loves you more than any person on Earth could ever. Trust God with your body, and he will continually honor you with his words of affirmation.
