Let God’s grace cover every ounce of insecurity you have in that moment knowing that His plan for your future still stands.
When you start to feel like you’re not pretty enough, good enough, or that you’ll never meet the right person, let God’s grace cover every ounce of insecurity you have in that moment knowing that His plan for your future still stands.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God. – Ephesians 2:8
God’s grace is a gift to you. It is because of His grace that you have been saved. Even in those insecure moments. His grace covers you and He is still planning every aspect of your future. So hold onto that when:
- You’re not feeling pretty enough
You can’t compare yourself to that one guy’s girlfriend. You can’t compare the way your body is shaped to your friends or the people you follow on Instagram. There is no reason to look in the mirror or a photo of yourself and think that it’s the way you look that keeps you from catching that one guy’s eye. Pray and ask God to cover you with His grace when these thoughts start crossing your mind. Yes, it is true there is a very subjective and often times false standard of beauty out there, but don’t believe the lie that literally every guy at college, in your community, or even at your church is only attracted to that. Don’t try to figure out who is or isn’t looking your way. Focus on reminding yourself of the beautiful truth that you have been saved by grace, and because of that, whoever does or doesn’t look at you is all a part of God’s perfect plan, and even when it’s hard to understand, it’s worth it to see what He has for you.
- You’re not feeling good enough
No matter what your past mistakes were, through Jesus Christ you are no longer enslaved to those things. Yes, you may still have to deal with certain things, but don’t believe the lie that just because you were in that bad relationship, or because you lost your virginity that God’s grace cannot find you. God grace is a gift–He doesn’t have to give it, but He DOES!
- You haven’t met the “right” person
If you desire to be in a godly intentional relationship someday, you have to trust that the “right” person will come into your life when God says “it’s time.” No more stressing out over every little thing. Wrap yourself in God’s grace knowing that He has this whole thing figured out.
