God bless you!, thanks for making this video it has been really helpfull!
I struggle with this daily but I’m not in college. You are so beautiful and strong. Praying for you. Thank you for sharing.
Even at 63 years old this happens!
You are so beautiful. God’s grace and love shine in you. You have an amazing ministry on YouTube and you bless so many people. I pray that your confidence will grow in Christ. You are lovely and precious to God. Allow him to renew your mind. Keep doing the things you are doing. I’m in my 50s and I look up to you. You have taught me such lot. I write my prayers now and it really helps me to focus – I learned that from you. I Pray Lord, bless these two sisters. Renew their minds to see themselves as you do. Give them confidence, bless their ministry. Thank you Jesus. AMEN
This is a good encouragement! I have struggle with my body image for quite sometime now, im a mom of three. And what you said "making ME big in my head" idolizing myself above God. I have realize that as long as God called me to do what only i can do. And given the rest to him. I also have pray that i would embrace the beauty of other women that God has created. But remember God looks at the heart! And you my dear sweet sister, are BEAUTIFUL!
Thank you for this video. I will keep you in prayer on your college journey and thank you for reminding me of what is needed
I mean god knew i would hate the body he gave me and he still did it, so why did he do that to me? Sorry for my terrible english btw
I pray that you will finish the quarantine well, blessing many others with your stories about how you try to stay close to the Lord meditating on his word everyday. Just one more thing is you are so pretty and adorable just as you are. God bless you.
Thank You! Praise God for not looking upon us as the world does!
I totally get what you mean. I’m going into my final year of university and honestly I’ve been in that position of comparing myself to other students. Talking to God about it is the best way to handle it so keep going, you’re doing amazing ❤️
You are Amazing!
Those other girls with "perfect body"
Have some major problems that TRUST me you would NOT want to trade places! Lets put it into perspective…you would trade it all if you had it…to just have one day of the peace of God… trust me its not worth it. Some of these IG models are committing suicide because their god is their looks…and it is just not fulfilling them..life is a fleeting shadow.
Hey Tailor, thank you so much for your raw honesty. I struggle with this right now too and it helped me a lot just hearing your words.
I always give Jesus my uncomfortable feelings and bad thoughts, but sometimes it feels like a dead end. I know that it’s always a process and that the work isn’t done with just one prayer (even though sometimes this can be possible too). But I trust Jesus to work within me even though sometimes it doesn’t feel like it.
I felt so much peace while I listened to what you said.
Jesus loves you so much and I’m really thankful that you guys put so much effort into this channel and everything you do. You don’t even know how often you’ve helped me in my life already ! Thank you
I dont know how to write prayers n pray at the same time but i love to do that. Can anyone help wit that?
Resist the devil he will flee
At 50 i still struggle with body image sometime, I have come to understand,It started in my early childhood. emotional abuse. I was chubby. People called me miss piggy and having an older sister who everyone called beautiful. But god call me. He separate me. I am special in his site. The world doesn’t understand what real beauty is. God said it is inside you. Quiet, gentle , loving others. and loving him . So i’m being myself and people are responding. I hope you will found this peace with in. for me it took 50 years. see yourself as god sees you.
I’ve barely watched this but "taking your insecurities to God"…. Im speechless that I don’t do this. I don’t take my insecurities to him when I should because He loves me and cares. My mom used a bizarre reference with brisket that people just like the good parts, nicely cooked and perfect. But God likes the burnt parts, the undercooked, or too much seasoning. He loves all parts of us so why shouldn’t we also allow Him to know or handle our insecurities.
I really just want to give you a hug. And tell you, you are not alone. I’ve been struggling with an ED too. And I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing and being so open a vulnerable. You are an inspiration. And for what it is worth you are beautiful in my eyes.
Absolutely beautifully put. As you were talking a peace came over me and I can tell you are more at peace too which is such a blessing.
Thank you for this video!! It comes to me as fresh water over mi Spirirt! I have just found out that my 4 year husband and father of two children has been cheating on me! And suddenly all of my selfsteem which I’ve struggling with most of my life…. even after coming to Jesus…. felt into the ground again! I’ve been crying till my eyes get enormously swollen and red ! And this video encourages me to raise my head again and take what the Lord says about me! THANK YOU…. BLESSINGS AND PLEASE PRAY FOR ME!!
Thank you so much for creating this video. It really resonated with me when you mentioned feeling a million uncomfortable feelings at once. I’ve been feeling really anxious lately about my body because I’ve gained a little weight, but I couldn’t really describe into words how I was feeling when my mum asked. It’s awful feeling body conscious. You feel so isolated, from both yourself and others. Even though I know my worth comes from god and not from what society thinks of me, it’s so easy to forget and compare yourself anyway!
You are beautiful in my eyes..inside and out..your soul shines through so much…humble, funny and real
I am going to take a psalm every day and write the verse and pray!! You dont know how much you have now changed my life!! Its just so good to know that some one my age is struggling with the same thing!
I have struggled since having kids, being a stay at home mom and having unlimited access to the refrigerator. I’ve put on weight. I’m a runner now, but still struggle with eating. It has been especially hard, because like you, I had someone from the church, I’m not particularly close to her but she’s a pastor’s wife, say to me "How do you still weigh so much when you run so much". I mean seriously, why say that to someone? So I get you girl. It’s a struggle. I’m listening to your podcast now, so I haven’t actually watched this video yet, waiting for the podcast to finish then I will. I still have weight I would like to lose, but I know I am healthy now, and that my identity comes from Christ not from what others think of me.
I love you so much! Thank you for being so honest about this, I feel the same way.
So encouraging! Thank you. I am so thankful for you and your family’s videos on your channel. I struggle with this too… do you have any suggested resources for someone who can’t afford counseling?
Thank you Taylor ❤
I will begin playing for you … a nd if you wanna Pray for me too please
I’ve eben struggling with an eatingdisorder for 3 Years now and i feel that it stops me from serving God completely
Everybody that’s reading this just idk comment or something if you want to get supported by prayer
We are a new generation y’all
Just imagine how Jesus could concer the world through us if we started praying for each other. Sister for sister
I’ve been insecure of my learning disability since 3rd grade and trust me its painful. Thanks this helped me:) God bless you
God bless you dear! Wish you all the best in life. You have found the truest treasure in life, and that is Jesus! P.S. You are Beautiful.
Watching this now, this is good stuff. I cried all day long today because I told myself I would be okay not surrendering to God… when really I needed to , to begin with. My meltdown today would’ve been prevented if I was just humble and went to Him. We are so fleshy , I need to work on running to Him immediately.. not a week , an hour , whatever it may be later. I’m a stay at home mom , and being home alone , makes ya think a lot. Sneaky thoughts come up , comparison comes up , and like you said it just builds up like weeds… and it’s hard to prune them if there are so many you haven’t taken care of. This helped me a lot, thank you girl for this.
One cannot sleep well do well think well unless one has eaten well IN JESUS NAME I pray over my sister that the shadow of doubt and any thoughts that may seem distracting regarding maintenance/upkeep/vanity that men may not struggle with as well that my sisters so often do be rebuked from her Lord, I pray not only that she find MORE of the incredible outlook with which you’ve gifted her but that others that cause it to fester in all of us also come to a revelation of the value and commodity of beauty and what it might mean today… Lord God we can say ‘beauty is fleeting’ until we’re blue in the face but we know the expectation of us often in the world and we cry out to you that a revolution against impossible standards of beauty abound and that a copy of ‘The Beauty Myth’ find itself in her hands. I thank you so much for my sister, your daughter’s heart that she shares with us in YOUR glory that we’re blessed with so often…
You are so beautiful inside and out, girl! I love your transparency. I am still in the process of seeing myself in God’s image. This video has truly touched my heart.
I believe that no matter how you look, everything comes back to the heart, if your heart is beautiful your beautiful! God loves ALL people!
Thank you so much for being honest and open about your struggles, it’s really helpful to hear. God bless you xx
Don’t be too hard on yourself. God didn’t make a mistake 🙂
the wisdom of this girl is something else. the way she speaks so naturally a very delicate topic is amazing
I struggled with body image issues for a very long time because I was picked on and called "fat pig" when I was in my early teens. It does hurt. Plus I was comparing myself with models who were at that time anorexics and I thought I was too fat compared to them. Then I developed anorexia when I was 22 years for 3 months. What really got me over that was my weak condition and me getting faint and sick all the time that it affected my job. Now I am 34 years old and I still struggle with body image issues but I am trying to take healthy measures into becoming fit.
I’m kicking myself for my body image right now especially my face
I see a woman clothed beautifully in the Word of God. Wishing you well as you enter your first few weeks of college. <3
Being vunerable is so hard, I struggle with binge eating as well. It is up on my list as of the most difficult things I deal with in my life. Thank you for sharing your struggles. Hugs! ❤️
