Being a Godly Girl in Today's World

You Are Made in His Image May 10, 2010

When my beauty fades away and all I see is gone;
Reflection in my mirror doesn’t please you anymore.
What will be left within me?
You promise me eternal bliss,
Never ending happiness,
If I’d only look and play the right part.
But now look what’s been left in me.

Tell me why do I, why do I try,
Try so hard to please you?
Can you promise me, In a few years,
You will even remember my name?

And I am made in the image of God;
I am loved for who I am.

Your flashy magazines & billboards always scream:
“Your worth don’t lie within; it’s how you look, it’s how you dress,
It’s who you know.”
But, that’s a deadly trap.
I’m breaking all your rules and getting off your path,

‘Cause I have come to see that where it leads is only heartbreak and shame
And who could be satisfied with that?


Tell me why do I, why do I try,
Try so hard to please you?
Can you promise me, in a few years,
You will even remember my name?

And I am made in the image of God;
I am loved for who I am.
And though I may not please your eyes, but always know that
It’s in me that God takes delight.

Takes delight.
