You are you. You can't be anyone else. You are one of a kind and you are made strategically for a purpose that only you can fulfill. I will make no secret that I believe in the God of the Bible and He has touched my heart and life in such a way that I know that He is my source of life and grand meaning. It does not make me an amazing or perfect person, but I know an amazing God who designed and cares deeply for me and you!
I like to say that He is the ultimate Image Consultant. We are made in His image and He values us, not because of our merit (some may feel they have a lot while others feel very wanting in that department, but no one is perfect). When you see yourself as He sees you, as a unique treasure with a finite body and life, but with an infinitely eternal soul, and you realize His great affection and compassion it is hard to resist loving Him in return and valuing yourself because you catch a glimpse of His value for you. His affection is not dictated by your performance or your belief in whether or not you deserve it. It transcends human measure and the way we do transactions. His love and mercy is free and unchanging and you can rest easy in it because it is not about you, but simply about His nature.
I also know that He is a good God. A trustworthy God. Even when I don't see the things I ask for in prayer, even though bad, hard things happen to me and in the world at large, I know God is working out good in everything because He said so, and His ways are above my ways. He is God. I am not. I don't have the privilege of understanding everything. That does not give me a license to be apathetic to evil or to not try to make things better for myself and others, but it does give me comfort and confidence that God is in control and trustworthy. I'll be honest though that sometimes it is a choice to believe this, not a feeling. But it is a choice based on Truth fortunately.
Anyway, I want to encourage you to be who God made you to be and enjoy it! That can take a variety of forms. There is no cookie cutter image you need to fit into. I can give you tools to help you make informed style and image choices, but you can also be free to not really care. God uses people regardless of their image. Image and style shouldn't be a burden to be a slave to, it should be a joy and a place of great freedom in which to be creative! Ultimately It's not about who you look but who you are. Your character will make or break what your image communicates. People want to be treated well and appreciated and they will appreciate that more than how you look.
Some people have a natural knack for knowing what looks good and how to communicate well. Others need to work on those areas. That is where the Refinery comes in. I can help you become more savvy and confident in your image and hopefully it will help equip you to achieve your purpose and be your best version of your one of a kind self! Let's do this!
