I was walking past the mirror the other day and before I even knew what was happening negative, self-deprecating thoughts filled my mind.
Weight loss, weight gain, and two kids later – I’ve got stretch marks out the wazoo, and that’s the truth – at least the way I see it.
But God stopped me in my tracks. As soon as that thought crept In, God got in my business. You see – I was talking bad about His daughter. I was talking about someone that He created.
This is the kind of self-hate that God wants to put a stop to.
This is the kind of self-hate that God will give us the power to put a stop to. Open up your Bible and read God’s written word about you.
Ladies, I’m telling you right now – YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Look at the Montana mountains, the Florida beaches, the rushing rivers of Colorado – the same God that designed all of that designed you, and He is an amazing artist.
Maybe today tell another woman that she’s beautiful. Maybe today look in the mirror and say those same words to the lady staring back at you – and believe it.
Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed. (Psalm 34:5)
