I am so so thankful that Aleks allowed me to contribute on her blog and am so incredibly blessed to have found such a great community of believers in the land of blogging.I am going to be kind of vulnerable right now and share something I have been struggling with since, well, pre-Backstreet Boys and shopping at Wet Seal. Comparison. As much as I hate to admit it, I do it. I was always awkwardly tall and wished I could be shorter like my friends in middle school. I went to prom in flip flops, refusing to be taller than my date. I wanted the clothes, the car, the cute boyfriend in high school. I wanted to look like the girls on the covers of YM and Seventeen Magazine. I felt like Jennifer Gardner's younger self in 13 going on 30. I kept being bombarded with these worldly views of beauty.
At that moment, I knew God was speaking to me. I could keep listing off my flaws to him and He would keep telling me how beautiful I was. His banner over me is love.
