To Deborah,

To Deborah, 

“I’m choosing me. I’m choosing Deborah. 

And right now, Deborah is dancing. 

Now, you can dance with me or you can get off my dance floor. 

I’m fine dancing alone”

Oluwadasola AbekeJesu Olayiwola,

You are beautiful

You are smart

You are funny

You are kind

You are unique

You are worthy of love and affection

You are not too much

And you are always enough

You are precious 

You are a diamond

You are a pearl

The most stunning of all God’s creation

You are worth more than you could ever imagine

Worth more than the numbers on the scale 

Or the hair product you use 

Or the shoes you wear

More than how many girls wish they were you 

Or how many guys wish they had you 

More than the price tags on your clothes

Or the percentage on the top of your math test

Or even the number of followers you have on Twitter

Your worth surpasses all earthly things 

Because in the eyes of the Lord God, you are loved 

And you are worth dying for

Regardless of who you think you are

Whether you model in a magazine

Or you model pottery with Grandma 

Whether you’re on the Hot List or the not list

Whether you’re head cheerleader or a High school dropout

Whether you’re Miss Popular or you’ve never had anyone you could call a friend

Whether you love yourself and love your life or you can’t stand to look into the mirror and you feel as if everything in your life is falling apart 

Whether you’re such a winner or you feel like the world’s biggest failure 

Regardless of who you think you are

The reality is that

YOU deserve someone who would give up their life for you

Because you are powerful 

And strong

And capable

Read about the women in the bible





These women changed the world forever

And inside you is a woman with that same power

In the same strength

And that same world-changing capability 

And your responsibility is to 

Find that woman

And to set that woman free!

This is who you are

And any voice in your mind that tries and tells you differently

Is from the enemy 

And the next time you hear such

This is what you say:

You say: Not me. 

Satan, I am a daughter of the Living God 



And adored above all things by the creator of all things 

For the Glory of him who is greater than all things


And please, Deborah

Don’t you ever forget that.
