Dear Beautiful You…
Lean in a little closer. I have something to tell you….
You are beautiful, just the way you are.
When did the voices inside your head become bigger than the voice inside your heart?
You know the ones. They whisper words like “ugly”, “inadequate”, “never enough”, “unloved”, and “not beautiful”. They are but a whisper, yet they ring loud and clear in your ears and somehow make their way into your heart.
At what point in your life did you begin to believe the lie that you are anything but beautiful?
Perhaps no one ever told you how beautiful you are. How can a young girl look at herself in the mirror and believe that she is beautiful, when no one ever affirmed it in her heart? You’ve lived your entire life with your head down and your heart broken.
But then along came The Rescuer. This One who comes wrapped in light and truth. He brings with Him a love letter, filled with words of love for you. And this One, He calls you beautiful!
Do you believe it? Do you believe that you are beautiful, just as you are, right where you are?
You are beautiful, just as you are.
Do not compare yourself to the woman you pass in the grocery story, or the mom you meet at soccer practice, or the woman you sit next to in church. You have your own unique beauty. No one else compares to you.
Remember the One who came for you? He calls you beautiful, and He does not lie.
“You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.”
(Song of Solomon 4:7)
Take a few moments and linger in that mirror, my friend. Allow Him to remind you today of the beautiful woman that you are.
