I just wanted to take a quick moment and chat about beauty. We don't live in a world today that makes self-esteem easy, do we? Despite campaigns for "real beauty" or articles about being naturally beautiful, the majority of photos we see feature models and actresses who are perfectly thin and have great complexions.
Everyone knows about the presence of Photoshop and retouching in magazines, but still there's a little whisper in the back of our hearts that makes us feel inadequate. Even if you have great self-esteem, it's almost inevitable that you compare yourself to the women you see.
The Bible says in Psalm 139:14-15 that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that God designed us especially in our mother's wombs. I'm pretty sure that God doesn't make mistakes. Every thing about you, every freckle, every dimple, even your toes, God made.
I hope you know, sisters, that you are perfect exactly the way you are.
