The Truth About You

June 29, 2018

Tuck in. Talk. Pray. And make sure to say the “signature phrase”.

Bedtime is rapidly evolving with a 12 year-old daughter in the midst of puberty. It used to involve story time, holding her hand and lying next to her in her bed until she fell asleep. But it’s always included that one thing I never want her to forget.

You are loved & special,” I recently told my daughter Sydney from the door as she turned out her light.

“I know,” she replied.

My face lit up with a giant smile… It’s sticking!

“Don’t ever forget it,” I added. With peer pressure, puberty and people who can sometimes be downright mean, this truth needs to play like a record on repeat for her and for us too.

Because the world has a way of trying to convince us otherwise.

You’re not thin enough or pretty enough.

Why would anyone like someone as imperfect as you?

Who do you think you are? You’re not anything special.

But don’t believe the lies.

“For You created my inmost being. You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13-14

You are special from the start. Created uniquely and designed wonderfully…
