Is It Wrong To Believe You Are Unique and Beautiful?
You’re so vain, you probably think this blog post is about you. And it is. Answer this question, do you think you are unique and beautiful? You have probably questioned at one point or another if you are beautiful and if caring about your outward appearance is vain or conceited.
God didn’t haphazardly give you the color of your eyes, your nose, or the shape of your body. He created you unique and beautiful. So is it vain to spend time on our outer selves?
Who Are You, Really?
You make choices every day concerning how you care for your body and your appearance. This doesn’t mean you need to spend inordinate amounts of time, money, or mental energy worrying or obsessing about how you look and what you wear. As representatives of Christ, you want to reflect His character not only inwardly but outwardly as well.
We can’t separate our faith from what we do. And we can’t separate our outer selves from who we are on the inside. You are who God says you are – redeemed, forgiven, chosen, loved, beautiful, and blessed to name only a few.
Many of us carry experiences from our past that have impacted our perceptions of who we are and how God views us. We can speak to this and how God has redeemed those areas in our lives. Maybe this is a message that you need to hear Who you are has nothing to do with impressing others and everything to do with the truth of who God says you are. And He says you are beautiful.
And This Is The Truth...
You are loved and you are beautiful. Not because we say you are (even though we do) but because the Creator of the universe says so. “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14).
