MY HOPE FOR YOU

Maybe I’m not good enough.

I’m too fat.

And I’m ugly. My hair is too frizzy.

Those girls over there are probably talking trash about me.

Nobody likes me. I don’t have any real friends.

I’m not good enough.

Hey, hold up a second!

Who me?

Yeah, you! Um, could you help a girl out here?

Whew! Thanks! Hang on, I gotta catch my breath.

Okay, that’s better. Whoa, you’re much taller in person. 

Who are you?

Oh, right. I’m your Voice of Reason! But you can just call me Blythe. 

Anyway, I’m here to tell you not to listen to all of that! It’s all lies!

It is?

You betcha! You know that little voice in your head? The one that keeps telling you all those bad things about yourself? Well, that’s the devil. He wants to make you feel bad. He wants to break you, you know?

He does?

Oh for sure! He does it all the time. If he makes you feel bad enough, he might even get you to do bad things for him.

Really? Uh huh. That’s how he rolls.

But I don’t want to do bad things. 

I know. Nobody does, but if he makes you feel bad enough about yourself, you might change your mind. 

So all these negative thoughts, they aren’t coming from me?

Nope. No way! He just keeps telling you them over and over again, hoping that you will believe him. And you know what else? He uses other people to tell you bad things about yourself too! He gets inside everybody’s head, and uses them that way.

What a creep, amiright?

So, don’t believe him?

Whatever you do, don’t believe him. He just wants to wreck you. He sees how powerful you are, and he’s going to do everything he can to try to stop you. He wants to destroy you. He wants to destroy everything that God made that is good.

That’s terrible.

I know, right? Like I said, what a creep.

But guess what? 

What?

He can’t make us do things that we don’t want to do. 

He can’t?

Nope. That’s why he has to stoop to trickery. He has no control over us unless we let him in.

So how do I stop him?

You put a shield over your heart.

A shield?

Yup. God has promised to stand guard over your heart if you ask him. 

And all I have to do is ask?

You got it!

Wow! Okay!

Time for me to go! But hang in there, okay?

I will! And thank you! 

I am powerful.

I am good.

I have friends.

I believe in myself.

I can be brave and strong and kind.

I will help others. I will be the best that I can be. ❤ 

Hey guys! What’s up?

Oh hey, Angie! Me and Saige were just talking about the weekend. The funniest thing happened, wait until you hear! 

Blythe was right. There was no reason for me to feel bad about myself at all. 

Hee hee! 🙂 ❤ 

For God so very much loved His world and everyone in it, that He gave His only Son to save us, so that anyone who believes in Him shall not perish, but have Eternal life.

The devil will try everything in his power to destroy what God created. Don’t let him knock you down. For you are powerful, and he knows it. God knows it too. Be powerful.

This is my hope for you. 🙂 

❤ ❤ ❤

  1. To quote a cool guy that I very much admire, “God is madly in love with you, and there’s nothing you can do about it.” He wants a relationship with every one of us. And the devil? Well, he can take a flying leap! Good message, Ginnie!
