Lizzie Velasquez was born premature only 2 pounds and 10 ounces and has a condition that does not have a known diagnosis. She is unable no matter what she eats to gain weight. Years ago a video of her was posted labeling her the worlds ugliest women. The cruel comments that accompanied the video traumatized her, and shattered her self confidence. Devastated, she wanted just like any one of us would, to retaliate. Then a realization hit her, what good is retaliating going to do, and that was not who she was brought up to be.
Then that still small voice of God that so many of us hear, and know, came to her and he said, “wait, just let it go.” She very wisely surrendered the situation to God, and let his will be done.
Matthew 7:1-2 “Stop judging, that you may not be judged. For as you judge, so will you be judged, and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to uou.
She went on with her life just being herself, and became stronger for having endured that experience. As the Lord took control, life began just falling into place, and she understood that she could reach more people in her condition of unique beauty. God does nothing by chance, he creates us with his plan in mind, and for a purpose. We are here for a reason, everyone of us have different talents, and gifts to contribute. We are supposed to share our gifts with others to enrich their lives as well as ours. Lizzie is perfect because God made her that way, and he does not make mistakes!
