Today’s writing prompt: Beautiful
For the longest time, the word beautiful meant nothing to me. When I looked in the mirror, all I could see was adulterer, sinner, drunk, whore — those were the names that I was called most of my life by the ones who love me and called me friend. I couldn’t hold my head up anymore because of the burdens that weighed me down. Beautiful was something that I was not.
It took years after getting saved to come face to face with my worst problem. I didn’t believe in myself. I didn’t love myself. Once that head and heart change connected, I began to see myself as God sees me — beautiful and loved.
[Tweet “Beauty is not in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is something that God gives you when your heart and your mind line up with each other.”]
If you are at a place today where you are struggling with loving yourself, can I just say — get before God and let Him show you what your true beauty is.
