YOU are Beautiful in God's eyes -
Even in an Ugly World!
(By: Amy Wingfield)
There have been many songs written using the word, beautiful. Almost always the song is referring to a outward beauty of a woman. However, it's those songs that refer to God seeing the inner beauty of His children that touch my heart the most.
You are Beautiful Just the way you are!
(This world has nothing to offer!)
"Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious."
I peter 3:3-4
"Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
"The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." (1 Samuel 16:7b NIV)
How beautiful you are to God? We need to be constantly reminded of that. He knows us. He loves us. He has plans for us.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
We are beautiful inside and out through the eyes of God. Take heart in that reminder when the media tells us we need to be tall and thin or wear the latest fashions or have the latest hair-style. That may be what matters most to the world, but God doesn't care about all that!
God cares more about you, your sweet spirit and your soul. God couldn't care less about whether you have streaks in your hair or own a pair of skinny jeans. God would rather have a relationship with you. He loves you , just as you are. He made you that way didn't he? Embrace that thought every time you look in the mirror.
No matter who you are: a child being bullied by their peers, a teenager trying to find his or her look, a stay-at-home parent, a single parent, one who feels alone, one who is dying or just someone who is hurting in this sometimes cruel and harsh world, remember God is always with you. He loves you and you will always be beautiful in God's eyes!
If you don't know that and are reading these words for the first time, I'm going to ask you to take a moment and ask God into your life. He's already here, but he waits for you to ask Him in.
Revelation 3:20 says, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me." (NIV) - JESUS
As this new school year approaches, won't you open the door to your heart and let God in? Let Him fill any void in your life you might have. Let Him show you, you were meant to fill a purpose that only you can do, and there can never be a More Beautiful You.
