You, sweet sister, are the crown of creation. You are beautiful. So much so, that after God created you, He stopped. Woman is the last of His creations. There is no other creation that surpasses us in beauty. Let that sink in…
There is a vicious attack on women and we are being lied to about our beauty. We are constantly being told that we are not enough, well I’m here today to say ENOUGH. Enough with the lies, enough with the insecurities, enough with the gossip, enough with the comparison; ENOUGH.
Today, find a mirror and behold your beauty. Stop, look at yourself, and remind yourself that whatever you may be feeling about your beauty is temporal. The truth of your beauty is not rooted in how you feel, but in Him.
God has made you beautiful.
I know Proverbs 31 tells us beauty is vain, but I believe this verse is in reference to exterior beauty. The beauty that radiates from our souls, there’s nothing vain about that. It comes from God, and God is Beauty itself.
We no longer dare to believe in beauty and we make of it a mere appearance in order the more easily to dispose of it.
-Hans Urs von Balthasar
Don’t let this be you. Beauty is not just your appearance. Beauty comes from God making His dwelling place in You, through the Holy Spirit. Next time you think “I’m not beautiful”, stop and repent. You are insulting God who resides in you. You are beautiful, because you belong to Him.
