Her Story: Beauty & Worth
She looks in the magazines, movies, and mirrors;
to define her own beauty a little more clearer.
What lies hide behind Hollywood's skies?
for are we to believe in a beauty that dies.
For boys may complement and clap;
But what’s the worth in that.
For this world has dragged femininity through trash;
Making sex the priority as a tear falls from a her lash.
Why does acceptance, beauty, and love come at such high a cost?
For the bruises will heal, but her innocence is forever lost.
Her pictures are posted for love and attention;
as she waits for even one sweet simple connection. .
She seeks to be seen, even to the extreme;
lowering herself to a hopeless dream.
Does she still not see that she is more precious than gold;
The King delights in her beauty and desires to place her in His mold.
The love she seeks so hard to find was nailed to a cross for all mankind.
Let go of this world’s obsession and grasp on to this one sentence:
Christ is, and was, and ever will be
your one true love, who died to set you free.
Your beauty and body were not meant for such abuse;
But are given by God for His special use.
Your value and worth are more than secure;
In light of the cross, Christ's love is completely secure.
And in seeking His face, you will receive,
the radiance He offers and the faith to believe.
