Teen Girl Series: You are Fearfully and Wonderfully made!


It hurts me when I see young girls putting themselves down. They call themselves ugly, they say no one loves them, and no one wants them. I used  to be one of those girls. I had that same self-destructive behavior going on, but no one knew. I kept it to myself. In my mind, I tormented myself. My self-destruction was a verbal and mental thing. It never went any further than that, even though I had suicidal thoughts, I never did anything about them. What I went through was enough though. With that self-destruction, along came depression. Which I kept to myself as well. No one knew what I was going through, except for me and God. It has only been a few years since I have really started to be opened about what I faced. This is why I feel such a strong burden to reach out to young girls. I know I have not faced everything you may be facing, but I hope to help you through whatever it is you are going through. You may think no one cares, but I do, I care! I may not know you, but I care! That is why I'm writing this. I want to let you know something's you may not know or you may of just forgot. So here you go.

I'm here to tell you that you are Beautiful! You are Wanted! You are Loved! You are Worth It! Jesus died for us all so he definitely thought you were worth it all! You have What it takes! You are Strong! You are Smart! I am here to tell you that you can get through whatever it is you are going through. No matter what it is. No matter what your circumstances are. You can do this, you are a Survivor! The only true way to get through all of what you are facing is Jesus, he can and will help you. That's how I got through all of my self-destruction and depression. I was Broken. I finally admitted it to God and he healed me. He set me free! You can be free too! If you want to be. He can heal you too, if you let him. I was Broken, but Jesus was my Remedy. See, this is why my blog name is Broken With Remedy. Its my life, its the truth. We are all Broken and in need of a Savior. Just ask him into your heart, ask him to take all of the pain and hurt away. Ask him to cleanse you from all of your sins, your wrong doings, bad decisions, mistakes. Ask him to heal your broken heart. He will do it!

 In Psalm 139:14 it tells us "I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are your works, and that my soul knows very well".  You were Fearfully and Wonderfully made!
Never forget that!

Here are a few more verse to help you:

Psalm 46:1  "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble"

Psalm 9:9 "The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble"

Psalm 22:24  "For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden his face from him; but when he cried to Him , He heard"

Here is a link to the website I found some of these on, there are more verses on there: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/20-bible-verses-to-comfort-the-hurting/

This week our church had VBS and I helped with the crafts. Today we made prayer chain links. We had the kids put a persons name on them or something else that they wanted to pray for. One of the little girls asked "Can I put my pets down?" and I told her "absolutely! put whatever she wanted too". Now thinking back on it, I came to realize something. I think a lot of us Christians today have forgot that we can pray about Everything.
Scripture tells us in Philippians 4:6-7 "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus". In verse 6 it says "but in everything", so to me that means we need to pray about Everything.
Sounds easy, right? To a lot of us it is not, we seem to pick what we think should pray about and discard the rest. God wants us to give him our all. Our Everything! All of our hurts, pains, Prayers, desires, plans, the list goes on. Then we can truly have the "peace of God, which surpasses all understanding". He gave it all for us, he wants us to give it all for him!

Why I do what I do...

You know those moments, when you have 1,000 thoughts bouncing around in your head and you don’t know which one to grab hold of and ponder on first. That’s how I feel sometimes. I need to do this, oh and I need to do that, wait something just came to mind I need to write it down before I forget. Ugh, then I go and do one of those things I needed to do and when I go to write what I was thinking down it doesn’t come out the way I originally thought. Half the time it barely makes since. Or if it does make since its not as vibrant as it was when I first thought of it. I’m still in the process of learning all of this. How to juggle being a writer and doing all the other things I have to do in life. God comes first, then my husband, then family, and friends. Within all of that I have my writing. My husband and I are also in Ministry (we are Youth Pastor’s and my husband is the Family Pastor of our church) so we stay very busy. I’m still trying to manage, when to clean the house and do other things I need to do. I’m not good at self-discipline. I need to be, I’m working on that as well. So needless to say that is why my posts are so spread out. I might do one post in a month, or I could do 10. I never can tell. I never would of thought I would become a blogger, but I am glad I did. This is a way for me to get my writing out into the world instead of keeping it to myself in a journal. Plus this is also a way I worship. The writing I do is all for the Glory of God! Matthew 5:16 is my go to verse for what I do, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven". That is why I do this, I want others to know christ and praise him. It’s not about me at all, its all about him!
