We All Feel Sad Occasionally, But What You Need to Hear is Encouragement!

Encouragement is something everyone needs, no matter who you are. If you’re feeling down or less than confident, a little encouragement never hurts.
Every girl out there needs to be reminded of this — you are SO beautiful. You may ask, “How, and why?” Well, the answer is simple: Because you’re fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. He created you the way He thought you should be created. Remember: He makes no mistakes. So when you’re feeling like something’s wrong with you, either on the inside or the outside, just remember that you were created and forged in the way He wanted, and you should be thankful for how He made you. He carefully designed you. Embrace it, girl!
1 Samuel 16:7 – “The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
I love this verse so much because it’s so true! Of course, outer beauty is sort of important, but inner beauty surpasses it by miles! Who cares if you’re not as pretty as the star cheerleader? Or, if you’re not as skinny as that supermodel? If you DO care about those things, I would just like to give you this advice: Don’t worry about what other people think about you. God is the one who’s gonna judge you and he’ll judge you by your ACTIONS and whether your heart is right with Him — not by your looks or any outward appearance.
It truly doesn’t matter what people think about you. It only matters what He says and thinks. Like I said, He made you nearly perfect in His eyes, and nothing can change His opinion of that. You are His beautiful daughter, His princess. His treasured jewel.
