    How to Deal With Insecurity in a World Focused on Selfies and Image

    Project Inspired started a group specifically for the Girl Talk questions, which typically come from the Girl Talk chat wall on Facebook. Click here to safely join our chat group.

    This week, a PI Girl was expressing her honesty that she feels insecure at times in our culture that’s focused on appearance, selfishness and how we look.

    There is so much pressure to post “perfect” photos on your feed on Instagram and on other social media, but it can be hard on our self-confidence. I agree that we must be watchful about where we place our identity and we must remember that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139). We are all unique and beautiful, and we must remember that God made us for a special purpose.

    I’ve seen some quotes that you’ve probably heard or read online that are very beneficial to keep in mind when comparing yourself to others online. One is “Don’t compare your life to someone else’s highlight reel.” Another quote is “Don’t compare your reality to someone’s controlled online content.” This is so true and real, ladies! Seriously, we need to pump the brakes on comparison.

    The Bible tells us to watch out for covetousness and to really guard our hearts and minds. I pray that you realize how special and precious you are to God. I pray that you see that the Lord is on your side and He has big plans for you. He wants you to walk in the calling and plan He has prepared.

     

    Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” (Luke 12:15)

     

    Another verse that comes to mind is the scripture that says to not let your beauty be outward, but inward. We all love to be fashionable, or as Nicole says, “Modest is the hottest.” We also want to make sure we don’t become consumed by our looks, or as Matthew 5 says, worrying about our clothing or apparel as the pagans worry about such things. We want to make sure our love for the Lord shines brighter, amen?

     

    Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry 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)

     

    PI Girls, know that you are SO loved, adored, cherished and prized by the Almighty God and that you are a True Royal Princess who wears an invisible crown, and you have an eternal crown waiting for you. Jesus loves you so much He died for you so that you could become an heiress, a True Royal daughter of the King!
