Six Minute Sabbath: You Are Beautiful

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

There were days past when I would criticize every little thing about myself.

My nose was too big, my freckles too many, my clothes too frumpy, my voice too soft.

Nothing I did ever seemed to be good enough . . . for me.

I never felt beautiful.

I constantly bemoaned my imperfections, until the day my husband stopped me, looked me in the eyes and said . . .

“Who are you to curse what God has deemed beautiful?”

Ouch.

I realized God knew far better than I did what was beautiful . . . and He said I was.

Beautiful.

And so are you. 🙂
