Psst…You’re Lovely

Psst... You're lovely! Really.

I clearly remember changing outfits at least a dozen times the evening before the first day of middle school. I would put one on, parade in front of my parents, and then rush back to my room to stare in the mirror.

None of them seemed quite right. I was a wallflower who got few compliments.

The next morning I woke up to find a note beside my bed. It said, “The outfit looks great, and so do you. Love, Dad.”

I don’t think he even knew which outfit I ended up choosing. It didn’t matter. I belonged to him, and that made me beautiful in his eyes no matter what I was wearing.

Our heavenly Father feels the same way about us. He created us, and regardless of what the world may try to tell us, He thinks we’re beautiful.

In Do You Think I’m Beautiful? The Question Every Woman Asks, Angela Thomas shares how we can respond to our desire for beauty.

If the question, “Do you think I’m beautiful?” came attached to my soul, then maybe the answer wasn’t ever meant to fully come from this world. Maybe the purpose of the question is to take me by the hand and walk me into the presence of the Creator. My soul cries out and asks me the questions meant to lead me to God. Maybe all that really matters is what He thinks of me.

Whether we obsess about it or ignore it, we’re made to know we’re beautiful. That truth can ultimately come only from God. He’s waiting to speak to our hearts the words we’ve always longed to hear. You are beautiful. 

“People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” I Samuel 16:7
