Today, I am tickled pink to let you in on the fact that my sweet daughter, Carissa, will be writing one day a week here on Renewed Daily! She is 13 years old and wants to encourage people for Christ. We are both thrilled to pieces. I know the things of her heart that she shares here with you will just bless your socks off.
So without further ado.... here's Carissa, for her first "Carissa's Corner"!
God Loves You!
Do you ever underestimate Gods love for you because of something really difficult that your going through in your life? If your answer to that is yes, that is okay! Even I do sometimes... but the thing is, every time I start to doubt Him, He turns the situation around completely and shows me how much He really does care for me.
Do you want to know a secret? My life is not perfect and neither am I. I have been bullied, pushed around, and laughed at and reached the point in depression where I kind of shut myself away from the world. I know what it's like and it definitely isn't fun but you'll get through it, trust me.
I have a lot of bad social anxiety and I'm not very good at interacting with a lot of people. I have always been really short and have even been told before that I look like a kindergartener because of my height, and I have been called names like stick girl, anorexic, and others as well. This is because I have an extremely high metabolism, meaning that I don't gain weight at the same speed of others, so I am pretty tiny for my age but its not something I can help. So I get bullied a lot, although people never know that it bothers me or gets to me at all because I have learned to laugh along with them and I almost always have a smile on my face.
Do you wanna know why?
Because I believe that no matter what people say or what they think I know that God will always love me and all of my flaws, and this is just the way I was made to be. So if you ever get sad, or start feeling like you're alone, I want you to take a deep breath, smile, close your eyes and say to yourself, "I am loved."
