I've been thinking lately. The world seems to have all of our minds in a twist. Beauty has become what the world says is beautiful. Girls, who are absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, are going to get nose jobs done. Guys, who are perfect, are believing that they themselves are worthless because they don't have the muscles and abs like Taylor Lautner. (I'm smiling and laughing here ;) )

What is beauty? What does it mean to be beautiful?

Beautiful-having beauty; very pleasing to the eye, ear, mind, etc.

"Having beauty." Again we are back to question of what beauty is.

Beauty- The quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses and is associated with such properties as harmony of form or color, excellence of artistry, truthfulness, and originality.

Excellence of what? Artistry. Y'all, we were created for a reason and we were created by the most skilled artist that has ever lived. We were created by the One who made the heavens and the stars. We were created by the one who has been around for all time. We have been created by God.

Okay did anyone see that last word in that definition before? Originality! Okay so we have just found an important fact here. We don't have to be like anyone else! We have our own unique beauty. No one can judge and tell us that we are not beautiful. Our beauty comes from being our self.

"Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the IMPERISHABLE BEAUTY of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious." 1 Peter 3:3-4

Beauty comes from within :)

"How BEAUTIFUL on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!""Isaiah 57:2

"But the Lord said to Samuel, 'Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.'" 1 Samuel 16:7
Need I say more?

"So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day." 2 Corinthians 4:16

"I will praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made..." In God's eyes we are beautiful because we are His. God made us in His own image. He made us the way we are for a reason. Each of us have a part to play in this world. We don't need to try to make ourselves like everyone else. The only person we need to be like is Christ. :)

Forever and Always a JesusChick
