I struggle with this..being considered beautiful.
For me, beauty always is reflected from the inside out. The character and integrity, the genuine smile that reached their eyes, a grace to move in confidence, knowing who their Abba is.
I struggle to wrap my head around what my heart already knows is true- I am His beloved, and He thinks I am radiantly beautiful.
I think it may be because God sees not only who we are now, but the whole woman that hasn’t yet been discovered, or uncovered, yet.
God loves me. And thinks I am beautiful.
Because I carry God within me wherever I go, I can be reminded of that truth of God’s – that God sees me as whole, holy and spotless, because of what Jesus has done for me, you, us.
In God’s sight, I am restored, beautiful, beloved.
Seeing myself- I waver, feel average on a good day, and insecure.
One is an earthly perspective.
The other, the heavenly reality.
Seeing myself through His eyes helps me keep my life in perspective.
