we're classy and stuff :)
I suppose this message is hard for me to relate to for one reason. It's sort of trivial(and a quirk about me), but I rarely remember the movies I've seen. My friends quote movies all the time and know who starred in what, and about 90% of the time I have no idea what they're talking about. Sadly this also encompasses Disney movies, and it's just not something I've ever related to because it wasn't a part of my childhood.
I did, however, want the attention, the clothes, the looks, the outward things that society values to be beautiful. I never felt I had them. I was too curvy, I was too shy, not flirty and fun, and boys didn't notice me. This made me sad, but it was then that I clung to Jesus and knew that He valued me whether I had those things or not. This is the thing I took from the message. The immense value He gives me, so valuable that He gave His life for an eternity of my company. It's mindblowing.
I also identified with something in part 2 - Livy said that even if you get to marry a wonderful, godly man, there is still something in you that no human can satisfy. I never thought that would be true, but being married 10 months, I can say with certainty that it is. It's like I want my husband to fulfill all my needs, and sometimes, even when we're having a great day together, I feel a weird emptiness. It's because my husband is not perfect, and neither am I. We let each other down. If you place your hope in a man, you will be disappointed. Jesus is not just a man, He is God and He redeemed our souls. What more can we want?
