The Gypsy Mama is where this stems from. Since you all know the drill I’m going to get started.
Honestly, for me beauty has so many different meanings. There are many types of beauty in the world to day. While most think of physical beauty, I firmly believe it’s so much more.
Honestly, beauty isn’t in the list of words I would use to describe myself. My husband and I go round and round about this. The only reason I can see beauty in me is because of the work God is doing.
Beauty at it’s best is when we line ourselves with what God has made us to be. When we seek what beauty is to Him, we begin to put into perspective what it really is. Beauty isn’t something that can be bought, as some might think. The most beautiful people I have known have been those who don’t try to be the person everyone else wants them to be.
This is the place I am working SO hard to get to. I have always been a people pleaser. While this may have made my personality beautiful to them, it made my inner being ugly. Only recently have I stopped putting so much emphasis on what others want and putting more emphasis on what God wants from me.
In this I have been finding that the person He created me to be is more beautiful than I could have imagined. As I search Him, the term beauty is showing up more and more in my own thoughts of myself.
Will you join me in searching this week for the beautiful things He has created? And see yourself as beautiful because of your maker, not because of what others say?
