You are Beautiful

When God created the world He made everything beautiful. Just look out the window on a sunny snowy morning, and you can see the icicles in the trees glistening in the sunlight. If you watch young children running around at the beach on a sunny summer day, you can see and feel their beauty and joy.

Why is it that when we look outside we see so much beauty, but looking in the mirror where a very familiar person is looking back at us, we see everything else except the beauty that God created?

It took me a long time to realize that God does not ask me if I think I am beautiful. He created me to be His image therefore He must have created me to be beautiful. After all, does the Bible ever talk about God creating something that was not beautiful? I have never read that verse! 

So, why do I look at myself and not see the beauty that God sees? Do I compare myself to the images that I see in TV or magazines? Do I believe others' words more than I believe God's word? I was driving home the other day when I hear Joyce Meyer on the radio talk about a "thinking time." She talked about the power of our words. Changing from negative to positive. Spending time talking with God. Spending time proclaiming the true words out loud. Finding a quiet spot to speak the words of truth. 

Today, I am speaking the true words out loud: You are BEAUTIFUL! Whether you feel it or not, the truth is that you are BEAUTIFUL! You are BEAUTIFUL because God created you BEAUTIFUL! Look in the mirror and discover the BEAUTY that God created!

Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made every thing beautiful in his time: also he has set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.
