I’m not sure where I found this image, but it spoke to me and I had to take a screenshot. We should always remember to think of ourselves the way the Father does: beautiful. Some may not agree with that statement. Before you can count yourself beautiful, you must know what beautiful means. Let’s take a look:
Definition of beautiful
As we consider these definitions, we see that the old saying is true: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Margaret Wolfe Hungerford is credited as saying this, but I don’t know if that is true. Anyway, let’s consider what the Lord says about you:
Ecclesiastes 3:11New International Version (NIV)
11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet[a] no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
So, you ARE beautiful. Not because you necessarily find yourself so (it’s great if you agree with the Father), but it’s because the Father has MADE you so. So enjoy the day, with all of its ups and downs, joys and challenges, knowing that you ARE beautiful because the Father told you so!
