Living Dolls Abby King
Have you ever..?
Felt you can’t possibly leave the house with no make up on? Asked someone, “does my bum look big in this?” Cried over a photo of yourself you don’t like? Said ‘thank you’ when you’ve received a compliment but not believed its really true in your mind? Made negative comments about the way you look? Wished a part of your body was different – smaller/bigger/less wrinkly/less wobbly/longer/shorter etc?
Growing up with Fairy Tales…
Time for some improvement…
Beautiful from the beginning…
So God created mankind in his own image, In the image of God He created them; Male and female, He created them…. And God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:27; 31 He makes everything beautiful in its time. Ecclesiastes 3:11
For you formed my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works, my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance, in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me when as yet there were none of them. Psalm 139:13-16
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 1 Peter 3:4-5 Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout, is a beautiful women without discretion Proverbs 11:22
The glue that holds it all together…
How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. Psalm 36:7-9
“I delight to sit in his shade, and his fruit is sweet to my taste. He has taken me to the banquet hall, and his banner over me is love.” Song of Songs 2:3-4
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:16 -21
