Five Minute Friday: Beautiful — 61 Comments

  1. thank you for your prayers and visiting my blog. surgery went well and I’m finally getting t ocomment!
    your post is truly beautiful. such a reminder of God’s perfectness. not what the world sees because that’s fleeting

  2. Loved this. Thank you for sharing. You are beautiful not because of your outward appearance, accomplishments, approval from others. You are beautiful because the God of the universe made you so! And he made me beautiful, too. 🙂 Thanks for the beautiful reminder.

  3. “I am beautiful, simply because I am His.” These are words to embrace every single day…blessings to you, sweet friend. Love this. 🙂

    • So good, and I loved what you said in your comment back to me about a “little less Barbie (Matel)” in our lives! Have a lovely weekend.

  4. Fabulous! You nailed it – we are beautiful because we are His. And when we open our hearts to Him, our beauty will shine through inward and outward. Lovely post, Barbie!

  5. Oh yes, you are beautiful because God made you, but also because you try to share your light with so many. Don’t forget that! If you don’t have beauty, then you can’t give it…and you do give it!

    Happy Friday,

  6. You are beautiful Barbie! It’s crazy to think that God loves us sooo incredibly much that He can’t stand to be away from us. It must break His heart when His beautiful daughters cannot see how beautiful they truly are. The world has distorted beauty. But the Lord knows where true beauty lies. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made, and beautiful in His eyes because of that. God bless you today sister! 🙂

  7. You are beautiful, I hope you never forget it. Thank you for sharing this, I’m sure growing up without hearing uplifting words about yourself was very difficult. Praise God that He brought you to Himself and is working His healing in your life.

    Stopping by from FMF, have a great weekend!

  8. God has made all His creation beautiful and we need to believe this that we ourselves are beautiful because we are His 🙂

    Happy Friday!

  9. Girl… every time I come here… I find Beauty! I love the message in this post – that we are Beautiful inside – because He is inside… but sweet friend let me tell you that you are Beautiful outside as well… because, always – what is inside, leaks out… and Jesus’ Love and Grace and Joy shine right on through! I too heard that song from Gungor as I was reading this and oh how true it is! He really DOES make Beautiful things out of us!

    Love you, friend!

  10. Dear Barbie
    This is just too beautiful! Yes, dear friend, He looks at your still and quiet spirit which is true beauty in His eyes. What I just love about the Song of Songs is how it tells us what a great Lover of our hearts our Beloved is.
    Blessings to you XX

  11. I totally get this Barbie. I am at that place now where I am doing my best to let God be the one to tell me I am beautiful because He loves me and I belong to Him.

    Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  12. You bring such beauty and joy to my life, Barbie. I hope you know how blessed I feel to count you as a friend! The scars will one day fade with His healing touch. 🙂 Love you!

    • Thank you April. I feel the same way about you. You’ve enriched my life and help to make it beautiful! Hugs!

  13. “I am beautiful simply because I am His.” Love this! If only we could wrap this around ourselves and wear it like a shield for when the world wants to tell us what beautiful is. Your post makes me think of the lyrics to a Gungor song ; “You make beautiful things, You make beautiful things out of the dust; You make beautiful things, You make beautiful things out of us.” Great post!

    • Thank you Kim. Yes, I know the Gungor song well and it was the inspiration for this post. Have a lovely weekend.

  14. I love how you replace thoughts with what God’s Word says. You are truly beautiful Barbie. I know that and I met you face to face.

    Blessings and love,

  15. This was beautiful! “I am beautiful simply because I am His.” Amazing truth. May we walk in that today. Thank you for sharing this with us all. I visited from Lisa Jo’s this morning 🙂 The disclaimer about the timer made me chuckle. I am glad that you added them though as they were powerful reminders today.
    Happy Friday!
