As I was reading through Psalms this morning, I came across verse 45:11, "The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your Lord." I thought to myself.. wow, even on days when we don't feel beautiful He still finds us precious and beautiful. I think it's safe to say most girls have some sort of struggle when it comes to image, self confidence, or self esteem. In a world like today's where everyone you see on tv is "perfect," it's easy to think that we are far from that perfection. We are beautifully and wonderfully made exactly how the Lord wants us to be - after all, we are HIS creation. Sometimes it's easy to lose sight of that and to think 'I need to work out, I need to eat less, I need to wear more make up, I need to dress differently, etc etc' all of those are lies. We shouldn't dwell on our imperfections, we should EMBRACE them! "I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well." Psalm 139:14. Praise Jesus we're not all perfect, then we'd live in quite a boring world haha.
I just felt it in my heart to share that, who knows, maybe someone needed to hear they're BEAUTIFUL this morning! :)
On a side note, Tay and I had a little photoshoot excursion (we're known to do this when we get a little bored) and I must say.. after a little police encounter due to the fact we were on private property.. they turned out really well! Haha, here are a few of the finished products!
I hope that everyone has a terrific Thursday - it's almost the weekend! :)
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— 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 3:3-4
