‘Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two / but I can shake it, shake it, like I’m supposed to do’
Despite critics accusing her of ‘skinny shaming’, everyone agrees that Meghan Trainor has written a huge hit with All About That Bass (http://bit.ly/1ol1Cni). It’s great to hear some reshaping of the world’s beauty standards, but the Psalms go much deeper:
‘I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made / Wonderful are your works / my soul knows it very well’ (Psalm 139:14 ESV)
One of the benefits of prayer is that it slowly brings us to see God’s view about ourselves, and the world we live in. He loves us because we are His creation, we are wonderful to Him however we look. The more we pray, the deeper that goes, until finally we believe it in our very soul.
