Hold On To Hope
Christ's love for us is unconditional. He loves you no matter what. He doesn't look at you the way you see yourself. He sees the good things about you. He thinks you're to die for. He loves you despite your flaws. He made you. He wants to be in a relationship with you. He wants to be there for you and comfort you when things aren't going well. He wants the best for you. God doesn't need you to just love Him, He wants you to recognize how much love He has for YOU. You don't need to earn His love, He loved you from the beginning. No matter what, God won't turn away from you, even if people do. He will never give up on you. He won't reject you. You may feel like He doesn't care, but He does. Feelings aren't always true. So don't stop just because you feel like it isn't worth it. Don't give up because you feel like nobody cares. Things get better. God cares about you. Persevere through hard times. Giving up is far worse than trying and failing. If you give up, how will you ever succeed at things? Don't let yourself believe that you have to be what society says is 'beautiful'. Don't buy into that. Outward beauty isn't everything. You're beautiful just the way you are. God says so. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. What matters most is what you're like on the inside. Inward beauty is more important. Inward beauty means having good character. If you choose to be more like Jesus instead of trying to be like the girl on the front cover of that magazine, then you will truly be beautiful on the inside, and your beauty will shine from the inside out. http://kimberlydeanna.wordpress.com/
At Starbucks. Drinking a salted caramel mocha, and eating an English muffin, before work starts… and being filled up by God’s word. I’m so full of joy. Thanking God for everything He’s blessed me with.
God is not here to get you through your troubles. He’s here to cause you to shine in the face of all of them.

You don’t have to be pretty like her. You can be pretty like you.
God is with you regardless of what hardship, heartache, or storm you may be enduring right now.
You aren’t alone. The Lord is standing next to you. He cares. He will be there.

Wow. So good.
You’ve been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try accepting yourself and see what happens.
Believe me, they don’t.
Your love and Your mercy is deeper than my depravity. You are good.
