Dear Sister

Dear Sister in God, 

Your beauty far exceeds what eyes behold, what tongue can speak and what minds can comprehend. You walk with confidence, not because of pride or selfishness, but because you know that the God of all creation has perfectly crafted you and set you on a mission with a purpose. Through love, pain, grace and a little doubt, you stay strong through it all, and by God's grace, you've been made new.

You may often wander away from your One True Love, but He'll never leave you, nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). You have value, and your value and worth is found in God (Matthew 6:26). No matter what, your value does not increase based on how may good works you do, nor does it decrease based on the sins you may commit. 

You may not always see your beauty, but God does. Before He even formed you in your mother's womb, He had a plan and purpose for your life. Becoming dead to sin and alive in Christ, you are indwell by Christ (John 14:20), and free from condemnation (Romans 8;1&2). You've been beautifully and wonderfully made (Psalm 193: 14), so much so that you're even called God's masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10). 

You've been chosen by God to do good works and glorify Him. Don't ever let anyone or anything convince you otherwise. Find your strength and rest in Christ alone. Seek Him with all your might. Love Him with all your heart.

Remember: You are loved. You are valued. You are cherished.
