I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.-Psalm 139:14
Love who you are. I know that sounds simple. Yet, if you look around you will see people who spend far too much time hating what and who they are. God created you. Therefore, you are a wonderful creation.
Yes, I said wonderful.
Lately, I have been hearing this play over and over in my soul to tell people. It makes me so sad to see beautiful women struggle with their looks. It is awful to watch.
Yesterday, I went to the beach and I saw so many long faces. They tugged and pulled at bathing suits. Listen we all cannot be size 2. That’s a fact, but we are beautiful in what and who we are.
The promise, put simply, is that the more you look inwardly and love yourself, the more you can love others and be at peace and content.
One self-love article put it like this: “We treat others in the same way we treat ourselves. And if I am uncertain about my worth, I will be uncertain about the worth of others.” A lack of self-love is seen as the root of all sorts of issues.
I need you to know that you are made in His image, therefore you are beautiful.
