Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear… The king is enthralled by your beauty. Psalm 45:10,11
You are so beautiful ….. Do you hear His whispers to you?
Some days we roll out of bed when we would rather crawl under it and hide. It’s those mornings that its hard to see how anyone can call me beautiful. Hair a mess; knots everywhere. Scraggly; limp and just barely hanging on. Like me some mornings. (I am not a morning person either so that sure does not help when all three kiddos are haha)
But what is beauty?? Is it that love for our children that gets us out of bed even when we just don’t think we have it in us? Is it that spirit within that makes breakfast and serves where the needs are, even as we are burned out and shut down?
What shall we do? When we have nothing left and yet we continue to give, to serve .. that is the greatest beauty any one can have.
Within. Not without. That which is of the flesh; it shall fade away. He made us; and He made us in His image. That means we need nothing to maintain our beauty. No matter how you make up your self, He created you. Perfect in every way. He did it. To try to improve on His creation in any way….Well, it’s just not right. It cannot be done.
He is the creator. He calls you beautiful.
Psalm 139:13 & 14 tell us that we are wonderfully made, knit together by His hands. And back in verses 1-5 we read these beautiful words:
“You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O Lord. You hem me in — behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.”
Jeremiah 31:3 says that God loves us with an “everlasting love”, Matthew 10:30 tells us that He knows us so well that He has the hairs on our head numbered. How often has God thought of you? You couldn’t count! It’s “more in number than the sand” according to Psalm 139:17-18.
When we laugh He laughs with us, and when we cry He holds us tight and comforts us because, “the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart.” Psalm 34:17-18.
When Jesus taught us to pray in Matthew 6:9 He told us to refer to God as “Our Father” And later on He tells us that we must become “as little children” (Matthew 18:3). So our relationship is that of a (heavenly) Father and a child.
“How great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God.” (1 John 3:1)
Surely, in His word alone you can see His love for you; the beauty He sees IN YOU, reflected in every word. Do not let anyone tell you different.
