I'm sitting in the airport of the worst city in the world (las vegas) and this lady walks by carrying a nice glossy shopping bag that has the emblem of the playboy bunny on it. This pains me with great anger. I'm tired of seeing ladies with a playboy bunny decal, shopping bag, hats, tshirts displayed on their person or belongings. I'm screaming in my mind "what are you doing?" this filth that objectifies you, that says your only value is your skin? Why would you display this perversion? I can't wrap my mind around it, i don't understand at all. It makes me so so sad as well.
I just left a beautiful retreat designed for highschool girls with GV, and i heard these tragic stories of self/outside abuse, from pregnancies to cutters, from low self esteem to random sex, from drug abuse and alcohol, i've never heard so much darkness, and yet these girls were sharing in front of 100 other girls of their darkest and scariest parts of their lives and they allowed me to see their courage and strength. God knew what He was doing when he took from adams side to create the woman after the Creators heart, the Creators beauty. I saw value restored to 100 girls this weekend, and it wasn't from anything except the love of their Heavenly Father. I left these girls with Ephesians 2:10, i pray it for them continually. I hate that this gift of God to this world and to Men has been dwindled down to the external, God has built us inside out, He looks inside, He works on the inside, He lives on the inside. Thats where i want to treasure this gift of woman as well, i don't want to ever be hung up on her outside, i love that we can all be healed for God and for each other. Thank you ladies for showing me more of the God i love and long to be like.
On the mend
