My Plea to all Girls

Please watch this video first before reading further



























The tension is thick in the air making it hard to see
The fear of what is to come and what will become of me
I say a prayer, help me not run away
Will You please hold me?


And sing me a love song again
Say the words that heal my heart
Sing me Your love song and then
Let Your words remind me who I am


You've never failed me before why do I feel betrayed
If I'd close my heart to You now the darkness would have it's way
I crave Your voice help me not fall away
Will You please hold me?


And sing me a love song again
Say the words that heal my heart
Sing me Your love song and then
Let Your words remind me who I am


'Cause You are all I need
And all that I want is You with me
You are all I need
And all that I want is You with me


So sing me a love song again
Say the words that heal my heart
Sing me Your love song and then
Let Your words remind me who I am

First of all, I praise God for band like BarlowGirl taking up issues like this one. How many of the girls really do not care about their weight, size, skin tone, hair, feet, face, hands and what not...

This world has made a simple living, loving, beautiful woman into an object. An object to sell products, to seduce men, to brighten things up! You gotta be size zero to look perfect, you should have a perfect, no blemish skin to look great, you need to have those shiny hair to look good in the eyes of men.

Stop it world! Cause we girls are not listening to these lies anymore, God made us in His image and likeness and as shown in the video and written in 1Peter3:3-4 "our 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."

We are all beautiful, we are all lovely, just the way we are. Tell me dear girls and ladies, what is the point of starving your God-given bodies to just end up looking like a corpse? Many young women have lost their lives due to false body image and anorexia and bulimia, I have seen girls going on all fruit diets, skipping meals, eating nothing, drinking nothing, killing their bodies and minds bit by bit.

We say our bodies are the temple of God, and if we do not eat properly, aren't we sinning against our body and against God. It is important to live a healthy lives. Girls and women are not decoration materials, we are living human beings with the breath of God in us.

My humble request and plea to all the girls is, please do not judge yourself by the worldly measure. Your unfading beauty is what counts.
