See, Girls? God is working something beautiful in you during the times of heat and pressure in our lives!

“Daughters of kings are among your honored women; at your right hand is the royal bride in gold (raw state) of Ophir. Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention: Forget your people and your father’s house. Let the King be enthralled by your beauty; honor Him, for He is your Lord. The daughter’s of Tyre (distress) will come with a gift, people of wealth will seek your favor. All glorious is the princess within her chamber (face ward, indoors, inner parts); her gown is interwoven with gold (refined). In embroidered garments she is led to the King….
(‭Psalm‬ ‭45‬:‭9-17‬ NIV)

Plant your roots deep down in God’s promises. You will NOT wither away and die in life’s processes! The Lord will keep you nourished under the surface of it all.

“The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭58:11-12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The Lord knows EVERYTHING about you, intimately! This may scare you but we are fully loved, wanted and treasured just exactly as we are! Now THAT’S true freedom! No more pretense, no more dazzling distracting disguises! Fully known, fully loved! Aw, that’s beautiful news, Girls!

“You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭139:1-18‬ ‭NIV‬‬
