"Hey, I passed some girls today at the mall, the ones you wish you looked like. They didn’t seem to have the same sparkle as you though. I saw that boy, the one you wish you had. He was with a girl, but still looking at every other girl who walked by. I saw those clothes the ones you wish you could wear. They didn’t seem all that great since everyone else is wearing them. I wasn’t all that impressed with what you don’t have because I know what you already do have. You have a beautiful heart after God, the promise of a love story written by His hand, and a unique style and personality all your own and perfectly made for His plans for you. Why do you want so badly to be like everyone else when God knows you were made for so much more? You have a bigger purpose. A heavenly purpose to use what he has given you to bring honor and glory to his kingdom, and to bring others to Christ. When we live our lives with this knowledge, it really does affect everything we do. The way we see ourselves, the way we see others, the clothes we wear, the things we say, the guys we pick, the love we give… Literally everything changes when we remember our heavenly purpose on a daily basis and make God the focus of our lives. And, trust me, there is nothing, nothing, nothing more lovely than a life that is built around our Savior. Chase Him today."

When I was 16, I got a purity ring. And when I was 25, I took it off. I didnât tell anyone I was doing it â it wasnât a statement or an emotional thing. I just slipped it off my finger that day and…
"What if we as girls had learned early on that having Him was everything, not a means to the life we think He would want us to have… If I’d learned who He is, what He wants, how to give Him everything, not “wait” so that one day I could give my everything to someone else.”
He is everything. Not a means to end, but everything. The sole focus of our lives.
