I don’t know if anyone else thinks the way that I do, but I find it incredibly easy to believe in other people. I love telling other girls that they are beautiful…both inside and out! But here’s the catch:
I just can’t seem to believe it for myself!
I try. I mean, I’ve heard those verses for my whole life…you know the ones, proverbs 31; 1 Peter 3; etc… And I know that those things are true. I really do, it’s just that a little help on the outside would be great too, you know?
But I just want to let you know that I am trying to change my perspective of myself and in that way, maybe I will eventually learn to see myself as beautiful! I believe that God has made me, and you, for a specific and special adventure…and I think that I am also hindering my journey along the path when I constantly find what is wrong with me.
Guess what, ladies…
God made you perfect. He made you unique. And He gave you everything that you need to fulfill His dreams and purposes for your life!
When I look in the mirror and turn away in disgust, I am practically slapping God in the face…telling Him that I’m not happy with the way that He has made me. And when I complain about how ‘bad’ I am at something, that’s telling Him that I’m not happy with what He has given me, either!
So I would encourage you, ladies…the next time you look in the mirror, trying to see differently. Find a different perspective. See with new eyes. God made you purposely just the way you are! So darling, you really are drop dead gorgeous just the way you are!
