Hello World

I am sick and tired of the standard that this world sets for beauty. I am not naturally stick thin and I don't want to feel bad for looking how I do. I am fearfully and wonderfully made by the King, and I know that. But it is so hard to feel beautiful in a world that is so set on outward beauty. Being thin, with all of the right clothes, beautiful skin, perfect hair, all the best accessories... I have wasted so much time trying to reach this standard and have even gone to extremes at times to fit in with the world's "beautiful people". But guess what I realized! Most of those beautiful people had to SIN to get to where they are. I am not willing to sin against my God in order to fit in and feel beautiful. I know that I am beautiful. World, stop telling me otherwise!

Thanks Erin. I know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made by the Lord, and I don't want to be otherwise convinced. God is so good!
