Creative Work


Michelle Ankrum, 16

You are special.
God made you for God’s own purpose.
And you’re telling me people are making fun of you
and treating you badly?
They have no respect for the wonderful masterpiece that is you.
They should know that no one else on this planet was destined
to do what you will do.
You are made for someone who loves every part of you
and recognizes how special you are
in the eyes of God.
Tell them that they are perfect in God’s eyes too.
Even though people don’t act like God,
God still loves them.
God will forgive.
