You are Beautiful!

If I had would have had to write this post a few years ago I would have been speechless. I was the "girl with the great personality" and you know what that means! I was the girl that didn't have a date {nope not even one} in high school. Not because I didn't want a date, but because I was the "girl with the great personality". I even had to ask someone to take me to the senior prom! Not feeling too beautiful here. My fiancĂ© even decided that we should see other people and broke off our engagement. Now the word ugly is looming large.

I went on to college where I met Jesus face to face. I began to read the Bible and some words started to leap from the page like the ones from Psalm 139:14 telling me that God made me and His works are wonderful! Hmmm, God only makes wonderful things! Something to think on. Then I learned that the more we learned about Jesus and the closer we grow to Him we start to think, and act in the way that will please God. He is living in me helping me to become the woman he created me to be, beautiful inside and out.

Have you ever noticed when you meet someone that is a Christian they seem to glow and you can tell right away without saying a word that they are a fellow believer? Are they not beautiful? Don't you want to be around them? That is what Jesus does to each of us as He lives inside of us.

The word ugly has been removed from my vocabulary. Genesis 1:27 says that God created us {you and me} in His image. I don't think of God as anything but beautiful, glorious, wonderful. That means so are you!

Are you thinking you are not beautiful? You were made in the image of God, how can you not be the most beautiful woman. If God created you and you have Jesus living on the inside GORGEOUS is the word for you . Trust me on this I know first hand that you have never looked more beautiful! God only makes wonderfully beautiful things. He even declares us "Very good!" So take Him at His word, believe what He tells you is true, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!



John 15:4

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

Psalm 139:14

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well
