He forgives your sins—every one. He heals your diseases—every one. He redeems you from hell—saves your life! He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown. He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal. He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence.
Ahhhh…beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Surrender is the key to inner beauty. Fake beauty fades quickly leaving one empty, but true beauty beautifies everything in its path. When you are walking with God there are no empty promises. When there are no empty promises then your inner being is taken care of. You feel refreshed and with purpose every day. When your inner being is healed and whole, you find yourself wanting to help others feel this way to.
Beauty is everything. Why? Because God is beauty. He is marvelous light. He is salvation. He is The Healer. He restores. He provides. He waits. He leads. He guides. All of these things my friends are beautiful things.
God created us in His image, therefore we need to really accept that we are beautiful, no matter what the world’s standards are. This is the fourth blog about beauty I have written this week and I now feel more beautiful than ever as God has revealed it’s meaning to me. I now can accept that I am beautiful not because a magazine tells me so, but because I know God says so.
Accepting who we are in Christ can sometimes be a difficult thing. We may have grown up in a family where we told that we were too fat or too skinny. Maybe we were told that we would never be as pretty as the girls in the magazines. It’s hard to accept our own unique beauty when those around us are telling us the exact opposite.
This is where a tight relationship with God is the key to our success stories. When we become so involved with God and what He thinks of us, nothing else matters anymore. We are not moved by the opinions of others or bound to our past by chains of put-downs.
Begin today to see yourself like God does. Go ahead, stare deep into that mirror. Keep looking until you see yourself for the beautiful person you were created to be. Stop listening to the lies and believe that God says you are beautiful.
