Love your Body

I don't know a single person who likes they way they look.

Who likes their body, their hair, their face.

But you don't realize how special that body is.

Think about this:

How did you come to be?

Right now I  don't mean your physical body, 
which came from your mom and dad

I mean


God created your soul, your being.

You are His creation.

He creates you,

then places you in a vessel

called your body.

You may not like the body He has placed you in

But He put you in that specific body for a specific reason.

There are no accidents.

    Meet Harley Dabbs

    Woman who survived house fire aged two gets phoenix tattoo after beating suicidal thoughts

    When she was two she was in a terrible house fire

    and 85% of her body was burned

    Harley Dabbs was two years old when a house fire left her body with 85 per cent burns. Despite her horrific injuries, she defied medics who believed she only had a two per cent chance of survival

    She was given a 2% chance of survival

    Harley's younger years were not easy for her and she would cover up her skin as 

    much as possible.  She said: ‘At the time I didn’t feel okay with myself, going to

    school or just out in public was very hard for me,I would even wear coats and 

    pants during the summer. I just didn’t want to be seen. I couldn’t handle the 

    stares and comments people would make.’

    But after turning to God, Harley managed to get through tough times.

    She explained: ‘I got tired of feeling the way I did about myself and realized this 

    negative person wasn’t me and what happened to me, happened for a reason.

    God allowed me to live and I believe He allowed this – I’m supposed to help 

    others, burned or not, realize they’re beautiful regardless of what society 


    To celebrate what God has done
