1 Thessalonians 1 (ESV)
2 We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, 3 remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. 4 For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, 5 because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction.
I just want to end this series by saying that you are loved, you are beautiful, and you are chosen! In a world of negativity and worldly expectations, know that you are not alone! It takes a lot of courage to brave the society that we live in, especially as a Christian; moreover, it certainly isn’t always mermaids and rainbows when you’re struggling to view yourself as Christ does! Not only do I love you, but you are a chosen masterpiece of our Lord and savior! Cherish your body, your mind, and your soul because it is a precious gift from the Lord! You are simply the best, and never forget it!
