The poet Jon Jorgenson comes to the attention of women with a strong message that tries to remind them that they are incredible. He says that no matter who or what you are, as a woman, you should be loved and encouraged to change the world, and you shouldn’t allow anyone to let you down.
You are beautiful, you are smart, you are funny, you are kind, you are unique.
You are worthy of love and affection, you are never too much and you are always enough.
You are precious, you are a diamond, a rose, a pearl, the most stunning of all God’s creations.
You are worth more than you can ever imagine.
Worth more than the numbers on a scale or the hair product you use or the shoes you wear.
More than how many girls wish they were you or how many guys wish they had you.
More than the price tags on your clothes or the percentage on the top of your math test or even the number of followers you have on Twitter.
Your worth surpasses all earthly things because in the eyes of the Lord God, you are loved.
And you are worth dying for, regardless of who you think you are,
Whether you model in a magazine or you model pottery with grandma,
Whether you’re on the hot list or the not list, whether you’re head cheerleader or a high school drop out,
Whether you’re Miss Popular or you’ve never had anyone you can call a friend.
Whether you love yourself or love your life or you can’t stand to look in the mirror and you feel as if everything in your life is falling apart,
Whether you’re such a winner or you feel like the world’s biggest failure,
Regardless of who you think you are, the reality is, is that you deserve someone who will give up their life for you.
Because you are powerful and strong and capable.
Read about the women in the Bible: Esther, Ruth, Martha, Mary.
These women changed the world forever.
And inside of you each and every one of you is a woman with that same power
And that same strength and that same world changing capability
And your responsibility is to find that woman and to set that woman free.
This is who you are.
And any voices in your mind that try and tell you differently are from the enemy.
And the next time you hear ’em this is what you say: you say, na-uh, not me, not me Satan, I am a daughter of the living God.
Cherished, loved and adored above all things by the Creator of all things,
For the glory of Him who is greater than all things.
I AM AWESOME
AND PLEASE DON’T YOU FORGET IT.
