To: A rose
From: a rose who use to struggle the same way,
You are very beautiful both inside and out. Yes you are...but now that we have gotten that out of the way it’s important you believe this for yourself. YES. not even I, can make this true for you. You have something that is radiant, empowering, a story that will impact many and have an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11) tells that Jesus has plans for us and sister those plans are worth looking forward to.
One thing I’ve learned in my 20 + years of living is that those around you, tv shows you watch, people you meet, the schools you go to and the company you keep can make it hard on you to accept your true self. While people (themselves do not have the power to do this) you give them the means to by thinking less of who you are. I praise God for allowing me to endure bullying, endure being talked about, being insecure, broken and feeling really low because then he made his strength known to my weakness. 2 Corinthians 12: 9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
You have the biggest battle from walking in total confidence to staying defeated and it’s in one place…your mind. Take out the trash (corrupted mindset) it’s starting to stink and put on a new thought (Philippians 4:8) this mind has an everlasting fragrance. It’s time to start believing you are beautiful, you are pretty, you are loved, you have purpose for your life, you are not an accident, you are a chosen generation for a time as this, you are the one he chose to go through and grow through for his name sake. You can do great things. No, you are not ugly, you are not weird (they simply cannot understand your uniqueness and that’s fine). You are going to have to swallow this pill that not everyone will like you.If that guy didn’t choose you then he wasn’t meant to be yours. Let another girl have him….
Accept those flaws
Accept your weird ways
Accept where you came from don’t let anyone put you down because you don’t look like them
Accept your uniqueness that is a gift from above.
Accept your true identity, God made everyone different…
You have some work to do and the journey to accepting who you really are… who God says you are is not an easy one, but the process will make you so much more beautiful and you’ll learn so much that you’ll become teachable. Just like a rose the process isn’t so great, but in the end it will blossom amazingly.
Be encourage, NF.
