Why can’t I look like her? I’m nothing special. Guys don’t notice me, girls look down at me, and all the adults think I’m “so adorable” (blech).
Hold it girly! I don’t like where that train of thought is headed! Let’s back up a bit.
In this day and age “pretty” is a very dangerous term. Yes, I said dangerous. The truth is many people see beauty as the girls on the magazine covers or the movie screen. What we need to realize is that they have a make-up crew, costume crew, personal hairstylist, and a person trainer. Plus, many magazine covers show the girl after editing to make her look skinnier.
I know what you’re thinking: So, that still doesn’t change that I’m nothing special. Wrong, you are special! “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” God is VERY special, don’t you agree? Well, God made us in His own image. Saying that we aren’t anything special is like saying God isn’t anything special. It shouldn’t be said because it’s just a lie.
Still refusing to believe me? Try this one: “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; you works are all wonderful, I know that full well.” What King David is trying to say here is that all of God’s works are wonderful. You can agree on that one, can’t you? Well, we are God’s works too. That means we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Don’t argue, it’s in the Bible!)
