What’s a Girl Worth?

Written by , Posted in faith, life

I was 13– Excited to be out late at Denny’s with my friends, talking and laughing, effervescent, carefree. He was much older, at least in his 30s, but he zeroed in on me. He leered, scruffy face so close, stinking drunk, and he loud-whispered words I’d never heard about what he wanted to do to me. He said he would make me quiver, and he did. Just not the way he meant.

I sought comfort from two women I thought would understand, but they could only see the moment through their own dark-tinted lenses. My experience wasn’t as bad as theirs had been, and they brushed it off. I was alone with fear and shame.

    Men can have such unshakeably bad effect on females. They can be so gross, base, ugly. I am sorry you didn’t get the support from the two other women. A girl is invaluable.

      Men, women– aren’t we all so flawed? But I’m so encouraged to see brothers and sisters speaking loud the truth to each other today.

    Powerful! A girl is certainly worth more than this. I’m reminded again how we need to define our value in how Jesus sees us and not by the experiences that we go through. Thanks for this!

    You’re heart is so beautiful. To anyone reading who wonders her worth… a little reminder from the One who adores ever fiber of her being.. the only One who matters…

    Proverbs 31:
    She is worth far more than rubies…
    Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value….
    she provides food for her family….
    She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks…..
    She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.
    When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
    She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple….
    She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.
    She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue…
    Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
    “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
    Give her the reward she has earned,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

      I don’t think this passage has ever appeared more beautiful to me than it does right now– thank you.

    When I think of worth, I think of “God’s Chisel” by The Skit Guys. It’s a good reminder that no matter how we may see ourselves, God doesn’t make junk!
