You are more than what meets the eye

Just because you are not a size 0, doesn't mean that you are not beautiful.



Just because you don't have the perfect tan skin, doesn't mean you are not dazzling.


Just because your hair doesn't fall exactly the way you see in all the pictures, doesn't mean you are not admirable.


Just because you don't have the blue eyes that everyone craves, doesn't mean you are not magnificent.

Just because you are not the correct height, doesn't mean you are not awe-inspiring.
Just because you would rather go outside and climb a tree than go shopping for the newest clothes in style, doesn't mean you are not astonishing.

Just because your face is adorned with freckles and blemishes, doesn't mean that you are not stunning. Just because you don't have a boyfriend at the moment, doesn't mean that you are not marvelous.
Just because you have braces on your teeth, doesn't mean that you are not gorgeous.

Just because your hands are worn from years of cleaning and helping take care of younger siblings, doesn't mean that you are not breathtaking.


Just because when you look at magazines and see how they portray beauty, and you think you won't ever be able to look like that, doesn't mean that God doesn't have a big purpose for your life.
Forget Hollywood, forget Barbie, beauty on the inside is what matters. Beauty within is what is going to stay with you.



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 3:4

God loves you. And He has amazing plans in store for your life.

  10. I love this, JesusChick, you have one of the most beautiful and inspirational blogs, I have ever read. This is an amazing post, especially lately for me, 'cause I'm not exactly "Miss Self Confident." I always keep a bible verse in my pocket:

    For I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13

    Thanks for writing this post, you're awesome.
    (gosh, this is a super long comment -_-)
