How many ways are there to tell someone they’re easy on the eyes?
“You make my heart skip a beat!”
I’d bet there are a million…at least. And if there are a million ways to tell someone they’re good lookin’, it only makes sense that
there are (at least) a million ways in which to be beautiful. If that is indeed the case, why do so many of us lack the willingness to witness our own internal and eternal beauty?
It’s said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While simple (and poetic), this phrase is the root reason each of us should love and feel good about ourselves. Beauty is relative to that which we are beholden to, so that if, as Christians, we believe we were created by God as an image pleasing to Him, He must find us beautiful, right? If so, then each of us, whether outwardly beautiful or internally gorgeous (or even blessed enough to be in possession of both qualities), is uniquely and purposefully beautiful to the One who breathed sweet breath in to our lungs. And considering we each are constant subjects to self-doubt, jealousy, and backwards thinking when considering the beauty of another,
it makes little to no sense to rest our self-confidence in the wayward opinions of other humans. So if a person finds reason to call us ugly and do so with a malice tongue, then they are not worthy of the worry we allow them to produce.
Whether you’re a Christian or not, the fact that you’re breathing as you’re reading this proves you house immense value within the human life you possess.
As a human life, your value proves your worth in the very essence of its definition. And your beauty comes from the worth you have held within your soul your entire life. I don’t care what you’ve been told or how severely you’ve been put down before. Allow yourself to put that away now. You are beautiful and that’s because you are worth something.
Your worth is in the breath you breathe and in the beauty you place in this world. Internal or external, shining or hidden, you inherently posses the beauty you wish to have. It’s there. It just needs to be recognized and appreciated.
You are beautiful. I see it. Won’t you?
