Prevent the Broken and Hurting

Posted on

I’ve never been able to listen to this song without tears in my eyes. Ever.

Even if I just catch it on the radio or hear it on the computer….. I always well up.

If every little girl was told that there could never be a more beautiful her by a man who loved her and cared for her and protected her… I think we’d have less broken and hurting little girls in the minds of grown women.

Moms can’t do it.

Friends can’t do it.

Siblings can’t do it.

There is something about the way we are made that has us always wanting and craving that fatherly figure to adore us…. and when we don’t get enough of it we end up Broken and Hurting.

I sometimes wonder why it took me so long to realize that even though that physical adoring father was never there, I’ve always had a heavenly adoring Father.

There is not a single line in this song that doesn’t resonate deep within me.

If only every man who had a daughter or a niece or a sister or a cousin or a granddaughter…. knew and understood this.

If every husband would speak these words into his wife regardless of what her fatherly situation is or was…. he could be the vessel that God uses to love her through.

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn’t straight, her body isn’t fake
And she’s always felt overweight

Well, little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care, your skin, your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies, disguises and hoops, they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty one the things that you’ve already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you’ve got a man but He’s got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well, little girl twenty one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there’s a man whose love is true
And He’ll treat you like the jewel you are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies, disguises and hoops, they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you, more beautiful you

So turn around you’re not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It’s not too late, you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear, they can all be washed away

By the one who’s strong, can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry, all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light, He will show you truth
And again you’ll see through the eyes of a little girl

That there could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies, disguises and hoops, they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you
There could never be a more beautiful you
