I saw a video of a young lady leading a child to Jesus. In the caption of the video she apologized for the way she looked.
I wanted to grab her and say, “Girl, you are leading a child to Jesus. You are making disciples. You are performing the most beautiful act known to man. Don’t sell your self short.” In that moment she was truly beautiful from the inside out. She radiated love. There was nothing ugly about it.
Ladies, you really are perfectly imperfect just the way God made you. Stop apologizing for the way you think you look. Stop downplaying yourself. Just post the picture. When you put all your emphasis on the flaws you think you have, then that is what will dominate your mind, your day, and your life. You are God’s, and God makes beautiful masterpieces – Just walk on the beach when the sun is setting.
You are beautiful.
You are wonderful.
You are worth it.
You are smart.
You are capable.
You can do great things.
You are God’s.
“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous-how well I know it.” Psalm 139:14
