To The Girl That Worries About What Other People Think

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? Matthew 6:27

If you’re like me you constantly worry about what other people think. Do they like my outfit? Do they think my hair looks cute? Do they like my makeup?

I was even worried about what people would think about this blog. Will they think I’m crazy? Will the blog be too short? Will my writing actually encourage people?

Honestly, if you think about it, how much time do you spend a day worrying about what people think? It’s a lot, isn’t it? I’d be scared to know the hours I’ve spent a day worrying about what people think.

But, God doesn’t want us to spend our days worrying about what other people think. God’s opinion is the only opinion that matters. (Your parents’ opinions are VERY IMPORTANT too.)

The devil will put thoughts into your head to make you think those other people’s opinions matter. Everyone has an opinion. We all do. We’re human. But their opinion truly doesn’t matter.

As long as you’re doing what God has called you to do, you shouldn’t be worried about other people’s opinions.

Be you, fulfill your calling, be confident, and have fun in life.

You don’t want to look back 20 years from now and regret worrying about people’s opinions all of the time.

My prayer today is that God will help you not to worry about what people think of you.

Thanks,
Katelyn

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Katelyn Dyess: To The Girl that feels Insecure

Written by Staff on June 19, 2020 – 5:57 am -

Katelyn Dyess To The Girl

Katelyn Dyess writes To The Girl

Katelyn DyessTo The Girl That Feels Insecure

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:13-16

You feel like your stomach is too big. You don’t have a thigh gap like that girl on Instagram. Instead of having perfect curls or straight hair your hair is a frizzy mess. You feel like your makeup is too simple. Your clothes aren’t cute.

These are just a handful of insecurities that girls have. Everyone struggles with insecurities. I have them. The girl next to you at school has them. Even the influencer you follow on Instagram has them.

I challenge you today to go stand in front of a mirror and say three things you love about yourself. Just three simple things. My hope is that after you do that you’ll begin to realize how beautiful you are.

God made you perfect in His image. He made you exactly how he wants you to be. He loves you and thinks you’re beautiful just the way you are.

My prayer today is that you’ll truly begin to love yourself and believe that you are beautiful.

Katelyn Dyess: To The Girl That Needs Positive Friends

Written by Staff on May 16, 2020 – 10:05 am -

To The Girl by Katelyn Dyess

Katelyn Dyess

Katelyn Dyess To The GirlTo The Girl that needs to surround herself with positive friends — from Katelyn Dyess

Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. (Ephesians 4:29)

I recently read an article that talked about not wanting to sit at the table with friends that would talk about you as soon as you got up. That’s so true.

I don’t want to surround myself with people that are going to talk behind my back. No one does. I want to surround myself with people who are going to cheer me on. You should want that too.

Having people around you that don’t support you is only going to bring you down. But having people around you that support you will raise you up.

We should all want people that bring positivity to our lives not negativity. I hope you find your tribe that brings positivity to your life.

To The Girl That’s Healing From The Hurt by Katelyn Dyess

Katelyn Dyess To The GirlHe heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds. (Psalm 147:3)Oh, sweet girl, I know what it feels like to go through this. You’re slowly but surely healing, but yet that pain and hurt is still there.

You’re trying to figure out the new normal. It’s uncharted waters for you.
You’re trying so hard to forgive and get back to normal but yet that pain is still fresh.
I understand what it’s like to go through this. I know it’s hard. I know it’s painful to pick up piece by piece of your heart and try to put it back together.
I want you to know that even though it’s not easy and it’s dark right now that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
God is with you every step of the way. It might not feel like it but I promise you he’s right by you, walking alongside you through this.

It will get better. I can promise you that.

Katelyn Dyess: To The Girl Who Made A Mistake

Written by Staff on March 12, 2020 – 3:30 pm -

To The Girl Who Made A Mistake

Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. (Isaiah 43:18)

Katelyn Dyess To The GirlWe all make mistakes. One time within the span of four weeks I had gotten myself locked out of a house, scratched the whole driver’s side of my car, and broke the side mirror. I know those aren’t big mistakes but when you make mistakes you can say I’ve learned my lesson, I’m sorry, and I’ll move on from this.

That’s the great thing about Jesus. When you make a mistake you can say, “I realize what I did was wrong, I’m sorry,” and Jesus will forgive you. He’ll forgive you every time you make a mistake. Even when you don’t deserve it, He still forgives.

So today, ask God for forgiveness from whatever mistakes you’ve made. It can be big or small and he’ll still forgive you. It will bring you more freedom than you can ever imagine.

Thanks,
Katelyn

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

To The Girl Struggling With Forgiveness

And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in Heaven may forgive you your sins. (Mark 11:25)I know what it’s like to have hurt and bitterness in your heart. You feel like you shouldn’t forgive those who have wronged you. You feel like it’s impossible to forgive that person that hurt you so badly. I’ve been there. It’s not a good feeling. When I was at a youth camp one summer I went up to the altar because I needed to forgive some people in my life. The pastor’s wife that prayed over me that night told me to say out loud “I forgive ________.” It didn’t immediately heal me but it did help me to begin the process of forgiving those people in my life. God has called us to forgive those who have hurt us and wronged us.

Forgiving that person can help you move on and walk into a season of healing. So, I encourage you to just say out loud “I forgive _______.” It won’t heal you right away but it will help start the process.

I also encourage you to pray that God will help you forgive that person. Even journaling a letter to that person can help you get all of those feelings off of your chest. Forgiveness isn’t always easy but it is a start for healing. I hope this helps you start a journey of forgiveness, healing, letting go, and moving forward.

Thanks,
Katelyn

To The Girl That Is An Overthinker

Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

You overthink everything. The smallest things that seem off, you over analyze. I do too. I’m the world’s worst overthinker. What I’ve learned is that you have to put your trust in God. Trust that he’ll take care of the situation. Trust that he’s doing what is best for you. Let your mind rest. Let God’s will be done.

Thanks,
Katelyn
