Women Are Not Objects

So I’m watching the Billboard Music Awards and the Far East Movement and Snoop Dog are performing. While girls are dancing around in next to nothing. You have GOT to be kidding me. I am so offended and always am when I watch an awards show. Except for country. They don’t do that kind of stuff. But it really angers me how women in the media are treated like objects. God’s creation is beautiful and meant for his joy and pleasure and the world takes our bodies and distorts it.
Women are to be like the Proverbs 31 woman not a sexed up object that is not a person, but a figure.
Not only is it offensive to women, but it corrupts the mind of males and sets them up to expect this fantasy, sexed up girl. VERY few normal girls are that way. Trust me. All we want is someone to love us and being ogled (for lack of a better word) is not what we want.
I guess all I can say is guys, rid your lives of that kind of stuff because you are only going to be let down. Girls are NOT objects and should not be treated as one.
Some man out there will fall in love with that girl for her personality, not her body. Imagine if that girl ends up being the love of your life. Do you want her to have been disrespected and treated as an object? You should think about that.

As for girls. Keep yourself in the word because it will give you more confidence than any acceptance from a boy could. Because God loves you more than ANYTHING. I would rather have Him be proud of me dance with Him for all of eternity than any mortal man.
I know I’m only 16, but I am so confident in MY GOD and this is His message to me tonight. Thought I’d share with the Internet.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

You Make All Things Work Together For My Good

I cannot say how true the title to this post is. So I ran for class president today and I won. That would not have been possible without my God. Not even kidding. Lets go to the beginning…

2ish weeks ago: I let it be known that I was running for class pres. and I was nervous-not gonna lie. Of course moms talk and basically every mom said that I didn’t have a chance. Luckily for me, my mom told me this and my first thought was, “Don’t they know Phil. 4:13?” Right then and there a fire was lit inside of me. My thinking was, “I’ll show them. I know my victory and honor comes from God alone and that He is my rock, a refuge where no enemy can defeat me (Psalms 62:7 NLT). Basically I was saying, “Bring it on.”

From then to now: All week I had been kind of campaigning but nothing major. I contemplated shirts, but couldn’t come up with anything clever, so that didn’t happen. Passed out some candy here and there. Well yesterday (Monday, May 2nd) my great opponent, Christian, had shirts! Awesome.. Of course I scrambled and my mom pulled a few strings and we got 22 shirts made and I bought a bunch of candy and made a poster. All for 1 day of voting. (I gave my speech Monday and voting was Tuesday) We vote and I’m feeling pretty confident. My candy and shirts are everywhere so for the first 2 classes I feel pretty good. Still I haven’t heard anything except my friends and 1 teacher have pretty much told me I have it in the bag. Then I hear 1 boy is the deciding vote. WHAT!? First thought? Oh crap who is it? Second? Please Lord. The boy voted for me and everyone congratulates me, but I feel like its not over. I was right. WE TIED. 64 people in my grade and it was split 32/32. Dang.

I couldn’t pay attention in class because I was too busy praying and I ended up reading my Bible for a good 30 minutes looking for any sign of reassurance from God. I was pleading and begging for God to spare me this victory just once. My mom and friends were even praying and reading their Bibles. I find out that the executive board gets to vote for the winner and I immediately try to talk to who I know is on the board.

Lunch time comes and I drive around Edmond a little and pray, after talking to my mom for a while (Breaking the news to her). Then, during 6th hour, I get to go to the ortho and get a retainer! Yay. I get home and get ready to leave to go work out and I get a text from an extremely reliable source that I won.

Basically I had to tell all this back story to get to the real lesson.

I couldn’t stop laughing and crying a little because all I could think is, “The Lord is faithful.” and “We did it God!..Well YOU did it!” All those moms that doubted me obviously didn’t take the faith of a young 16 year old girl to big a factor.

I know this and have seen it lately and I want everyone to know that THE LORD IS FAITHFUL. Without Him life would be a massive black hole of despair.

(Please don’t take this as me bragging that I won. Please. That is not my intention at ALL.)

DO NOT forget that the Lord makes all things work together for our good.

God bless.

I will say of the lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalms 91:2
