Fearfully & Wonderfully Made

Hi my friend,

I hope that this letter finds you well. I’ve heard that you’ve been feeling a little low lately, that you’ve been feeling insecure about the beauty that was bestowed upon you since the moment you were conceived.

I want you to know that I completely understand. You’re not alone. I myself have been insecure about the beauty that was given to me. There have been moments where I’ve hated the way that I looked. From my nose, to my lips, to the way that I smiled, to scar on the right side of my cheek, and even the way that my eyes looked. I found myself hating the skin that I was in, it didn't matter how many times people would tell me how beautiful I was, I just couldn't believe it, which pains me to say as I write this.

As I have gotten older I have come to realize that my insecurity has come from me comparing myself to others. I couldn't understand why I couldn't be as "beautiful" as them, as if God made a mistake while creating me, which was a lie that inhabited in my mind at such a young age, and it only started to take up space the more that I dwelled on it, until one day I came to know the truth. The truth that God took His time on me just like He took his time on the people that I compared myself to, and you, my friend.

See Friend, God took His time on you. He says that you are Fearfully and Wonderfully made, which I can prove to you. In this Bible verse below, God helps David to see this truth as well and David praises Him for that,


"For you created my inmost being;

you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

Psalm 139:13-14 (NIV)


What I have come to realize is that, I am not a mistake and the way that I look is not a mistake. I was purposefully created to look the way I do. God doesn't make mistakes, that's not in His nature. So, I want to encourage you friend to get out of your head and to fight these lies of insecurity with the truth that you are FEARFULLY & WONDERFULLY MADE.

Would you stand firm and confident in that truth my friend.


With Peace & Love,


-Ty


*To the reader reading this, I hope you found encouragement in this letter by knowing that you are not the only one who struggles with insecurities, so many of us do in so many different ways, but it is important that we do not let these insecurities cripple us and keep us from knowing the truth. If you find yourself ever feeling insecure, I hope that you would remind yourself that you are Fearfully and Wonderfully made and that God doesn't make mistakes. You are a masterpiece, my friend. (Ephesians 2:10)
