Hello lovely world!
God loves you so much!
Do you know that you are beautiful right now just the way you are?
You don’t need to hate yourself because you have pimples on your face or scars that won’t go away. You don’t need to desire to be someone else either.
You are worthy of God’s love! He loves you just the way He made you to be.
You don’t need plastic surgery or Botox to feel and look pretty. You are pretty as is!
You don’t need jewelry or makeup. You don’t need the most expensive clothes and shoes.
You don’t need piercings or tattoos. In fact, this subtracts from your natural beauty.
God didn’t make you that way.
He made you beautiful with His Awesome Powerful Hand!
1 Peter 3:3-4
3 ‘Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.’
What you might find to be pretty is not the thoughts of the Lord. What He has made, no one can replicate.
No one can clone another you, so intricately and precious and extremely precise. No one can create a combination of a great mind, of a wholesome soul, of a good moral heart, and of beautiful essence other than God!
Do you know your worth? You are more valuable than the most expensive jewels!
God has molded you to be perfect in His image. You are Heavenly created art!
God breathed into your beautiful body the breath that brought you to life.
A gush of wind that stirred up your heart to beat in a drumming manner.
‘Thump. Thump. Thumpity Thump.’ And it keeps a steady rhythm to keep you alive and well!
Your lungs, they are receivers and givers, exchanging air directly to and from the main Source of life—God!
See, your beauty goes skin deep. It is more than just a body you are trapped in until you die. Be more grateful than that.
Look at your skin. It is an organ—the largest organ in your entire body for that matter!
It is a beautiful, warm, and peachy color that makes you one of a kind from other people’s skin color. Some are whiter and some are darker.
The color of skin and hair, God has granted you with, are your outer beauty tones.
Your face, hair, height, voice, etc…are all the features God put together to make you become solely unique.
You don’t need to dye your hair or wear hair extensions to look beautiful. You already are wonderfully made by the Lord.
You don’t need to put on fake eyelashes and wigs and nails to look glamorous. You are gorgeous already!
You have God-given beauty and there’s not a man-made product that can shine brighter that you already do. A good soul is rare beauty!
Embrace who you are. Take of the hat that you cover your hair with and be content with the hair God has given you. Wipe off the makeup from your face and be happy with how you look without it.
Take off the false lashes and fake nails. Let yourself be seen as who God really made you to look and not how you want to look.
Do not be dependent on these things to give you a false sense of happiness or self-confidence. You have everything you need already. It’s up to you to see it that way.
Don’t worry about impressing others. The world will never be satisfied with how you look so don’t pay attention to that.
Pay close attention to God. Pay yourself a visit if you seem to have lost who you are and rediscover your true beauty.
Your self worth is important. If you don’t like the outside, how will you love the inside?
If you don’t see you are beautiful enough in the mirror, how will you ever see your true innermost beauty that is your soul?
Self-love is important. It is what will bring your mind to a deeper understanding of who you are and you will uncover your worth.
Embrace yourself if you are white. Embrace your skin if you are medium white. Embrace your outer-self if you are milk chocolate or the darkest of chocolate.
Love your body no matter what! No matter how you look—you are enough! You are Beauty-full! So…so Be-you-tiful!
God didn’t want the color of our skin to separate us or become enemies of each other because of color distinction.
He made us all. Race and ethnicity should not be a hindering factor to love others because everyone matters. You matter to Him because You are God’s child, no matter what color He gave you.
He made humans in different shades of skin, just as He made the rainbow in different shades of color. Isn’t that just beautiful!
I believe you are completely beautiful! Don’t struggle with insecurities and self-worth issues. You are part of a rainbow of life.
You are part of the body of Christ! We are meant to be a church together with all different skin colors, races, unique heritages, and ethnic backgrounds.
We have outstanding strength and beauty that goes beyond the vision of our humanly eyes. God sees more beauty within you than you see in yourself!
There is an extremely beautiful soul inside of you. Your skin is the shell, shielding your soul from this wicked world that wants to destroy it.
There are so many bullies that are mean towards individuals. They love to hurt others and poke at them verbally and physically, putting them down for how they look and for who they are.
Yet, the bullies are the ones that have self-esteem issues and most of them feel unloved. How sad is this, that they go on to hurt others because they are hurt themselves and they don’t feel beautiful.
The word ‘beautiful’ is supposed to be spoken every day. Life is beautiful! The day is beautiful! Your family is beautiful! God made us beautiful beings!
You have inner and outer beauty. God created you perfectly when He molded you into existence. By His hands He created us!
God cares for your heart and He cares for your soul. Don’t live a bittersweet life. Start feeling alive by accepting yourself for who you are!
Don’t let the world tarnish what God has made perfect. The world can be cruel; you could be made fun of by friends or family but don’t let their remarks change you.
For example, what if someone makes fun of your nose and then you start feeling insecure about how you look, so you go off and get a nose job that ends worse than how you looked prior to the plastic surgery.
You would wish to undo what you did, but if you go through with it, you can’t change your mind and get your God-given nose back.
You should know who you are and love yourself as is, if not, you could pay the consequences of your actions or mistakes.
With that said, let your soul shine with luster because you are made to be beautiful!
Regardless of what you think of yourself, that you’re ugly and unloved, those are lies from the Enemy who wants to hurt you.
But the Lord has made you wholeheartedly beautiful. So always keep loving who you are. Instill it into your soul.
Have a heart for God. Seek Him because He loves you. He will show you you’re worthy! God will reveal to you your beauty!
Then you will realize how incredibly made you are from the strands of hair on your head to the tip of your toes on your feet.
You will realize that your soul is to be kept holy and clean from the world.
You will come to know that God gave you a glorious gift of life with beautiful blessings and that you should be thankful all the rest of your life for what He has done!
So go ahead now and look at yourself how God sees you. Learn to love your person and take good care of the body and soul that He entrusted you with.
With beauty and grace,
Leticia J. Santa Cruz
