Until I met Him, I was never enough



I dyed my hair. I got extensions. I took diet pills. I ran for miles.


I got fake nails. I went to a tanning bed. I let him pick out my clothes.




I tried to be who he wanted. I tried to make him love me.

But it was never enough. I was never enough.


He found someone new. He found someone better.


He carelessly disposed of me. His actions recklessly broke my heart and damaged the way I saw myself.


Then I met Him.


He tenderly took me into His hands. He faithfully began to shape me into what I was meant to be all along.


Day after day, He whispered YOU are fearfully and wonderfully made. YOU were created with a purpose. Each hair on YOUR head is numbered. YOU are a daughter of the King. YOU are loved with an everlasting love.


And each day tears would fall from my eyes as I struggled to believe His truth until one day I finally believed Him. One day I believe that I was ENOUGH.


Sweet friend, we may never meet the standards of an earthly man, But we ARE enough and we ARE perfect in the eyes of the One who matters most.

I pray we all come to know our worth through Him, because darling, we ARE precious in His eyes. We are worth far more than rubies, imperfections and all. We. Are. Beautiful.
