You have heard it a thousand times. Your Beautiful. Actually right now you might be thinking, Please let this post not be another one of those posts on how beautiful you are. Well, actually it's not, so I'd keep on reading if I were you.
In the christian culture we live in today there's a big deal made all the time on how beautiful one truly is. How they are God's perfect creation and nothing is wrong with them. Of course all young girls insecure about how they look need to hear this message. Yet the only reason young girls find themselves starring sadly in the mirror is not because they can't grasp they are truly beautiful. It's because they cannot grasp the true meaning of beauty.
The world sees beauty upside down. Pretty girls in cakey make-up aren't beautiful. Well, in some eyes they may be, yet this is temporary beauty that cannot last. Telling a girl she is beautiful is almost a lie for true beauty it not outward. Beauty is who you are inside and out. It's the feeling that captivates you when someone speaks words of encouragement, not the feeling when you think another is more beautiful to you.
True beauty is Jesus Christ, the only perfect thing. To truly understand we must realize the only beauty we can have is inside when Christ calls us. We are simply a prism, one who refelcts the light. Beauty can only come from Christ, which is true, lasting beauty.
I'm not a girl of jewelry or make-up. I would rather be plain because Jesus is all the jewels I need. I want to be a city on a hill, a moon reflecting the sun's light.
Christ is beauty and I am His prism and reflect His light alone. How I wish all humans could hear and understand this message!
There's good news for you. If your saved by Christ then you are truly beautiful in Him.
