When is the last time you called yourself beautiful?
My daughter is two and already asks if she looks pretty when she puts on a bow or a new dress. I pray that I can instill in her the truth that beauty cannot be put on- it lives within her!
“You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.”
Song of Songs 4:7 NIV
How different would our lives be if we could see ourselves through God’s eyes?
He see’s us as altogether beautiful- He sees past all flaw and imperfection! If you think about it, every time we speak negatively about ourselves…loathing our bodies or finding every little wrinkle, blemish or flaw that we dislike, we are actually demeaning God’s handiwork!
Lord, forgive me for speaking negatively about myself! Thank you for making me altogether beautiful! I pray that you would help me see myself through your eyes!
