You are more beautiful than you think! And your value is not based in this world. Yeah really. There are many, many clothing and makeup companies that don’t want you to know the secret. They make millions upon millions on products to feed our low self image. And then let’s add in the photoshopped images seen on our media and magazines. I have heard it said that if Barbie were a real person she couldn’t stand up – that’s how disproportionate her body shape is.
So what’s the “secret”?
YOU ALREADY ARE BEAUTIFUL!
God made you that way.
He already put it in you!
And we have value based on what He says, not the world.
Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out;
you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking!
Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out,
you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit,
how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth;
all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared
before I’d even lived one day. (Psalm 139:13-16 MSG)
