A Letter…

I read an article today that saddened me…
A 14 year old girl was videotaped (unknown to her) performing a sexual act on a boy while another boy looked on…this video was then uploaded to a social media network.This video/the girl then became a “Trending Topic”.
This young lady, I’m assuming, thinking that she could gain some type of notarity, made a Twitter account and began posting comments.
After awhile, the little girl was being called everything but the child of God.  She then began to post comments saying that she was just doing what her “role models” do and talk about in their music etc. This 14 year old stated that she looked up to some of today’s most popular female rap/hiphop artist and reality show stars…
If I could write this young lady a letter, this is what it would say…

I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now~but know that a person can only define you, if you let them. I’m not going to sugarcoat anything. I know that people have said and will probably continue to say some hurtful things. Their words can’t kill you…unless you let them.<br
If I could tell you anything, I would tell you that you are WORTHY!  You are worthy of honor, respect, love and fullfilling your God-given purpose…don’t cheat yourself out of the life that God has planned for you.  Don’t live by anybody else’s standards~friends,peers or celebrities. 
You SET the standard~you have the power to create purpose from your pain on the inside of you…
You are beautiful. You are loveable. You are respectable. You are full of potential and purpose. You are God’s special creation.  Take some time to get to know you… Not the you that society or tv tells you that you should be. But the you that God created you to be~there’s a big difference.
Learn from this situation. Learn to set boundaries, make wise decisions, and hold yourself and your body in high regard b/c you are valuable, you are one of a kind~there’s no one else like you….

There is so much more that I would like to say…but more than anything I want to do…I want to be a Light, mentor, an example for some other young lady so that she doesn’t have to go through this type of pain and embarassment. I’m willing Lord, send me…
