That's about how I'm feeling right now.
I have been asked to speak at our church's teenage girls' retreat. The topic is insecurity, which would be my platform should I ever compete in Mrs. America!
I feel that so many terrible choices young women make are the result of insecurity. And I also feel that women are often the cause of each other's insecurity. I have so much to say on the subject.
However…I also feel that I am totally inadequate for this honor. I am an insecure woman. I do know that I have more confidence than ever. I know that my looks aren't as important as I thought. I know that God doesn't make junk and he made me exactly the way I am for His purpose. But, I compare myself to others. I wish I was taller, thinner, more talented. I don't take compliments graciously.
So how do I talk to these girls? How do I convince them that they are all beautiful in their own way? How do I let them know that they matter? How do I make them see that it gets easier as you mature? How do I keep them from being like me???
I'm asking for prayers, please! I'll let you know how it goes :)
