You Are Worth Dying For.

I was reading Modern Modesty, and I came across this post. Watching the video she embedded into that post moved me to blog about it myself...

I think all ladies should hear this message:



Here is what he says, in case you can't watch the video:

You are beautiful.
You are smart.
You are funny.
You are kind.
You are unique.
You are worthy of love and affection.
You are never too much,
and you are ALWAYS enough.
You are precious.
You are a diamond,
A rose, a pearl, the most stunning of all God's creation.

You are worth more than you could EVER imagine.
WORTH more than the numbers on the scale,
Or the hair product you use, or shoes you wear.
More than how many girls wish they were you,
Or how many guys wish they had you.
More than the price tags on your clothes,
or the percentage on the top of your math test,
or even the number of followers you have on Twitter.
Your worth surpasses ALL earthly things,
because in the eyes of the Lord God,
You are loved, and you are WORTH dying for.

Regardless of who you think you are,
Whether you model in a magazine,
Or you model pottery with your grandma.
Whether you're on the hot list or the not list,
Whether you're head cheerleader, or a high school drop-out
Whether you're Miss Popular, or you never had anyone you could call a friend.
Whether you love yourself and love your life,
Or you can't stand to look in the mirror and you feel as if everything in your life is falling apart.
Whether you're such a winner,
Or you feel like the world's biggest failure.

Regardless of who you think you are, the reality is,
You deserve Someone who will give up their LIFE for you,
Because YOU are POWERFUL and STRONG and CAPABLE.
Read about the women in the Bible, Esther, Ruth, Martha, Mary,
These women changed the world FOREVER.
And inside of you EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU is a women with that same POWER
and that same STRENGTH and that SAME WORLD CHANGING CAPABILITY,
and your responsibility is to find that women and SET THAT WOMEN FREE!

This is WHO YOU ARE,
And any voices in your mind that try to tell you differently,
Are from the ENEMY!
And the next time you hear that voice, you say,
"NOT ME SATAN," I am the Daughter of the LIVING GOD,
CHERISHED, LOVED AND ADORED ABOVE ALL THINGS, BY THE CREATOR OF ALL THINGS,
FOR THE GLORY OF ALL THINGS!

I AM AWESOME.

Please, don't you forget it!

-John Jorgenson

I wish I could show this at school. How different would my self-esteem have been as a teen if I had heard this message back then?

Please share this video with all the ladies in your life and know that you are worth more than you could ever imagine... you are worth dying for.
