A More Beautiful You by Johnny Diaz

V. 1
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.
Little girl, fourteen, I wish that you could see
The 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.

Ch.
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.

V. 2
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
He only wants what you'll do instead.
Well little girl, twenty-one, you never thought this would come,
You starve yourself to play the part.
But I can promise you there's a man who's love is true,
And He'll treat you like the jewel you are.

Ch.
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.

Bridge:
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 ride 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.

Ch.
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...

I was just thinking about this concept yesterday . . . about how God has a purpose for the way He's made me. And I can delight in that!

Yeah, this is a great song...it's so easy to fall into the world's way of thinking about beauty.

The world's view is so prevalent, that I think like the world without being mindful that I'm thinking the wrong way.

That's why I love Psalm 103! Reading it is an awesome way of renewing my mind and putting my focus on the right things.
