#1 You are beautiful. God is breathtakingly beautiful and like DNA from a parent, His beautiful image is imprinted on you. Nothing you that have done or that has been done to you can ever remove your beauty because He has created you.
#2 You are valuable. God says that you are valuable and a treasure. He doesn’t just say it with words, He sent His perfect Son, Jesus, to pay the debt for your sins so that you would be His forever.
#3 You are a precious daughter. When we become daughters through a relationship with Jesus, we are immediately adopted into His family. At that moment, He calls you precious daughter forever.
#4 You have a loving, protective Father. No matter how your earthly father has treated you, your Heavenly Father promises that He will never leave you or abandon you. He always has good things planned for your life-even when life feels hard, He promises to use those hard things to bring about good in your life.
#5 You have a family that loves you. Another gift we receive through His adoption is the gift of brothers and sisters, who have also been adopted. Although no family is perfect, God makes us family and we now have lots of brothers and sisters who can encourage, guide, love, protect and help us so we don’t have to face life alone.
#6 You can have a new life and promising future. Anyone who belongs to Jesus has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! He promises to lead you where to go and that your future will include hope and help from Him always.
#7 You are never alone. Ever. As a daughter, your Father in heaven says that no one will be able to stand against you as long as you live because He is always with you and will not fail you.
