Kim Kardashian. Taylor Swift’s new guy.
Magazines and Social Media flow in like the tide,
Spoon feeding us garbage, yet we still swallow up lies
“Keep reading for 10 ways to trim down your thighs”
And other girls like me,
Search fitspiration tags at night,
thinking God why did you have to make me oversized.
WHY. WHY. WHY.
If I eat these cookies now then I wont eat dinner tonight.
Or maybe they’ll like me if I put makeup on my eyes.
It seems we have forgotten one simple truth in life:
the bodies in which we live
we cannot claim as “MINE.”
Take a second and step back for a while,
who put the breath in your lungs
and gave you a vessel to occupy?
It was God.
He knows everything about you
because he built us from a pile
of dust from the ground,
and from that dust we became alive.
He sculpted each of your features,
from your toenails to your smile
yet you dare believe the notion that
there are flaws in His design?
If you look into what He writes
We are all Daughters of a King,
who sacrificed His life
in order to SAVE OUR lives.
And For 3 days He hung on a cross,
shouting up to the skies
Drenched in blood and the tears
He let flow out from His eyes.
“Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani!”
the final words He cried out
to His Father up on high.
But not once did He curse us,
because He loved us still despite
our sinful nature and brokenness,
and for US He chose to die.
For my sins he CHOSE to die.
Yet instead you choose to worship
certain girls and certain guys
plastered on a TV screen,
promoting a broken and empty life
controlled by temporary desires,
Like sleeping around with strangers
to fill the gaping hole inside.
As that hole grows bigger,
You begin to question why
you feel left alone in the world
or no longer feel the need to survive.
But I can tell you the reason why,
and its written in Isaiah 43:1,
You. Are. Mine.
Its not about you nor is it about I,
We belong to something bigger
than what society deems as “right.”
So I would rather follow Christ
than devote my life
to a 9 to 5 day job
with bonuses on the side.
Will you choose to follow a savior
that accepts the flaws of your past life,
or will you follow this world
and let the hole grow inside.
