YOU are Beautiful

Beauty is something {especially as women} that we are always searching for. We look to others at times, for inspiration and maybe even admiration.  We obsess over silly things like pimples, height, weight, clothing size, eye color, hair color….and the list goes on and on! We long to “be beautiful” and even if we are told every day that we are beautiful, we don’t believe it. Why? I really don’t have the magic answer as to why we all feel this way, but I do know this. 

When we stand in front of the mirror and we are not satisfied with our outwards appearance, perhaps we should look to our inside instead. Because beauty, real beauty is found in Christ. Beauty is much more than you or I can “see.” Being beautiful is more than a  weight loss or gain,  a new hair color or pretty outfit. Beauty is in the way you make others feel about themselves. Beauty is letting God’s light shine through you! {God created man in His own image. In the image of God, He created male and female. Genesis 1:27}

Think about it for a minute…..is there someone you know that you think is beautiful for more than just their looks? What makes them beautiful? Perhaps it’s the way they treat others or the way they make you feel loved and appreciated. I encourage you to  look for beauty in yourself this week, no matter what you may see when you look in the mirror. Do something that lets your inner light shine and radiate beauty.

{Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30}
