Beautiful. There are many definitions. But only one is true. Can you guess which one is the true definition? You. Yupp, you got it! YOU! Your smile is radiating. Your presence is wanted. Your words are pleasant. Your hair is perfect. Without makeup, your still breathtakingly gorgeous. Your laugh is contagious.
I can see God now. Having to step back to admire His perfect work. Truly, He created a masterpiece when He created you. He looked and smiled, “This is My child.” Perfect are we in His sight. Precious, extraordinary, magnificent, and unique.
Why is it so hard for us to see the same in ourselves? Maybe our image of ourselves have been tainted by society. Maybe someone needed to feel better about themselves by putting you down. They have reprogrammed our way of thinking. Our self esteem was knocked down a notch with every word. We need this and that….We must do this and that in order for us to be considered beautiful. But PLEASE don’t give in. PLEASE don’t believe the lies. PLEASE don’t base your beauty off of how someone else looks or the opinions of people. Learn to see yourself how God sees you. Look at yourself through His eyes. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, allow those eyes to be yours.
What’s the definition of beautiful? You!
