music monday// more beautiful you

hi, you! yes you! i want to let you know, you are a treasure, a beautiful work of art by the Creator of the universe. you are treasured and valued. dig into the Word and know what God, the most important being ever says about you. some people may not acknowledge this truth about you, but that's ok. cos what's important is that you know. and you believe it.
 please, do not cheapen yourself for someone's attention. the right people meant to stay in your life will not make you beg for their affections. God made you for sooo much more than what this world lets you on. stay close to Jesus and let His Word wash over you with it's powerful, world-altering Truth. you were made for an important purpose, a special, specific purpose that you need to focus on. i hope you seek the Lord and allow Him to lead you in your purpose. let Jesus be the sun your world orbits around.

this song holds so much truth with each sentence, you just gotta soak it in.

more beautiful you~ jonny diaz
little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine, says she wants to look that way
but her hair isn't straight, her body isn't fake and she always felt overweight.
well, little girl fourteen i wish that you could see that beauty is within your heart
and you were made with such care, your skin, your body and your hair are perfect just the way they are

there could never be a more beautiful you
don't buy the lies, disguises and hoops they make you jump through
you were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
so there could never be a more beautiful you.

little girl twenty-one, the things that you've already done, anything to get ahead
and you say you've got a man, but he's got another plan, only wants what you will do instead.
well, little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come,
you starve yourself to play the part, but i cam promise you
there's a man whose love is true and he'll treat you like the jewel you are.

so turn around, you're not too far to back away,
be who you are to change your path, go another way
it's not too late, you can be saved.
if you feel depressed with past regrets, the shameful nights hope to forget
can disappear, they can all be washed away
by the One who's strong, can right your wrongs
can rid your fears, dry all your tears
and change the way you look at this big world.
He will take your dark distorted view and with His light, He will show you truth
and again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl.

"for You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. i praise You because i am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, i know that full well." psalm 139:13-14

"your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." 1 peter 3:3-4

"keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.' so we say with confidence, 'the Lord is my helper; i will not be afraid. what can mere mortals do to me?' " hebrews 13:5-6

"since you are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life." isaiah 43:4

"for the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-control." 2 timothy 1:7

"since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of othe Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. that means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. we have far more interesting things to do with our lives. each of us is an original." galatians 5:25 (MSG)

pretty is as pretty does. you are pretty because of the sweet, godly person you are inwardly. you are beautiful in your own unique, original way. please, do not compare. do not compete. you are beautiful. :)
