Hello Kids corner!
How are you? I hope that you have had a spectacular day wherever you are. And I hope that you have had an amazing start to the new year. I feel like January has been going pretty fast. Though I'm excited for the new year with all of you reading. And I am praying you are staying safe! Today I want to talk to you about self-worth.
It is very important to stay focused on God and his word. He is what matters most. God made us. He made this whole world. We should be reading our Bibles and going to church. Although we can often get caught up in our insecurities. And that’s not a bad thing, it’s normal. I get insecure all the time. Over my style, my hair, my grades, my pretty much everything. I wish I could just be more confident but it’s hard. It really upsets me and I’m sure I’m not alone.
I don’t know why humans have created this beauty standard because God made us perfect in his eyes. And I don’t understand why we measure ourselves the way that we do because at the end of the day we are all people and we are all really similar. But it is hard to recognize that at that moment. That’s why we can be so hard on ourselves. So self-critical. I mean you don’t walk down the street and think in your head that someone is ugly or dumb. So don’t think that about yourself. We should be confident in who we are.
There is a difference between loving yourself and being prideful. Just like there is a difference between confidence and cockiness. We should be in the happy medium. We can also show others how to love themselves. Because truly everyone is beautiful. They were made individually by God. And he loves us. He knows the number of hairs on our heads. And we lose quite a bit of hair a day so that is really saying something.
To bring this to a close I just want you to know that you are loved and you are special and important. You are beautiful. And smart. And you’re gonna get over that hill. And you’re going to do great things. And I'm so proud of you. Look how far you have come. And look at all the things you will do. So no matter what anyone says or does remember there is God up in heaven and he made you perfect.
This is Lyla Belle signing out.
