Nowadays everyone has an ideal way they envision themselves and others to be, but in reality, that’s unrealistic. No one is perfect. But we are perfectly imperfect. So what if your hair isn’t silky straight, or if you’re not the reflection of the skinny models in the media. Guess who you do reflect? You are a reflection of our creator. He created us in his image and has given us all our own unique identifier, a purpose, a place in this world. Be who you are, not who others envision you to be. Feel perfect in your imperfections. Confidence is the key. One of my favorite scriptures is Ps 139:14-16. And it reads:
“(14) I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.(15) My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.(16) Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they were all written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.”
Be content with whom and whose you are. There is no one like you. You were made individually, not in a group. You are perfectly imperfect and there is nothing wrong with that.
