Before I plunge into this post, I just want to apologize for neglecting this blog so much. I really have no excuse. I will try to post more frequently. 🙂
Now, beauty. That’s a word that every girl, every teen, and every woman wants to be, no doubt about it. The definition, according to Google is this:
a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight
But Google has it all wrong. Read again the definition “…pleases the senses…especially the sight”. Well, having one person say that you’re beautiful and another say that you’re not, does not determine if you are.
Now here is what God says about beauty:
“He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.” (KJV)
So here the writer is saying that God has made everything, everyone, beautiful. You might say, “Oh, that can’t be true. I’m ugly.”. Well, the honest truth is that, surprise! You’re far from ugly. And why? Because while we’re not perfect, God is! We think that we’re just full of flaws, but fail to realize that God is flawless! How could we be full of mistakes when our Creator is not capable of making them? Now you may say, “But, I don’t understand. How can we be flawless when nothing in this life is perfect?”. That’s true. We’re not perfect. But God didn’t mess up when He created you. That spray of freckles across your nose, your skin that fails time and time again to tan, and your hair that can’t decide whether it wants to be wavy or straight are all part of a beautiful person called YOU. While we point out the flaws, the Lord points out the good in all things. He is the potter, you are the clay. Let Him form you into what He calls perfection. Reach down inside of yourself and find the beauty that has always been there. Look on the bright side, be confident in yourself as a daughter of the King, and don’t listen when others try to put you down. You can find the beauty…because God found it in YOU…
