you are beautiful.

   You are beautiful. I could go on and on about how beautiful you are and without even seeing your face, I know you are beautiful in some way.  You see, for most of you that wouldn't mean a thing. You are too deep in the world's version of "beauty"; you cannot see God's version. The world tells us that being skinny, and having perfect skin and perfect hair is beauty. Beauty is not that - beauty is who you truly are. If you are constantly comparing yourself to the worlds view of beauty, then you are not being logical. These things (perfect skin, perfect hair, and being super thin) are not practical. The models you see on magazines- it's called makeup and photoshop. God says beauty is within, because it is. Proverbs 31:30- Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.

    This does not mean you should never spend time on your looks but as someone once told me "Your inner beauty is just as important, if not more important than your  outer beauty". This is a constant struggle for all of us because we believe the world's lies.  You need to realize how beautiful and amazing you truly are because you are God's creation.  Read His word and find out what He says about you.  What I suggest too is to make a list of 10+ ways you are beautiful inside and out and constantly remind yourselves of those. Put them on your mirror and read them everyday, along with the printable above. To print it click here.
