i feel like girls really need to read this. including me. its so true. you are beautiful exactly the way you are. and just because you see some other girl who is pretty, it doesn't mean you're not. remember that.
God doesn’t want us to sit in the ashes of the past; He wants to trade our brokenness for healing. He wants to give us beauty for our ashes. The key is that we have to be willing to give up the ashes in order to receive the beauty.
