Take Up Your Pen
The response to my blog post yesterday, To All the Fat Girls, has blown me away.
Obviously, my experience is not an isolated one.
You women have been broken and weak, and you have been beautiful. Others have overlooked you because of what you look like or sound like. But there is a treasure inside of you that needs to be shared.
I would love to hear your stories and to help share them with other people. Would you want to do that?
Your story is powerful. It is worth listening to. You are full of beauty and wisdom.
Write down your story. Tell me what you have experienced and what you have learned from it. Show me how God has met you in weakness.
Let’s talk about weakness and how valuable it is.
Let’s talk about being broken and finding Jesus to be enough.
Maybe the stigma you’ve lived under is that you’re fat. Maybe it’s that you’re unstable. Maybe it’s another one of a hundred possibilities.
I want to hear it, to learn from it, and to share it with others who are also learning to in weakness and beauty. Email me your story at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember—And they overcame [the accuser] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
