This is an interesting concept that we tie our happiness to things instead of God.  “If my happy was missing when I was larger, it will still be missing when I get smaller.”  Incomplete people believe tangibles things will fulfill their emptiness.  There are so many incomplete and empty people in the world constantly looking for affirmation.  Jesus tells us in John 15:9-12, “I have loved you just as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my own joy may be in you and your joy be complete. This is my commandment: love one another, as I have loved you.”  He loves us in skinny jeans or not, so fill your emptiness with Him and help lead incomplete people to the light.
