Have you ever sat in front of the mirror and nitpicked at your appearance? Whether it’s a stomach that just doesn’t lay flat enough, a freckle that seems misplaced, or a change that has come over you with age, many of us fight our displeasing attributes.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with make-up, working out, or using lotion to flatter your features, but unfortunately we live in a society where discontent has become the norm. Magazines display only the most beautiful. A subtle sense of envy can overcome any heart.
But, my friend, that sells your worth far short. In Psalm 139, God says you are “fearfully and wonderfully made” and how vast are the sum of His thoughts toward you. God doesn’t define beauty in our terms. He created you in His image. Your worth can’t possibly depreciate with a wrinkle, a misplaced mole, or a few grey hairs. It can’t change because somebody didn’t appreciate your laugh or your character.
You, my friend, have a value far beyond your own understanding. Don’t lessen God’s description in your heart. Galatians 6:17 says:
From now on let no one cause trouble for me, for I bear on my body the brand-marks of Jesus.
If you’re a daughter to the King, God has brand-marked you as His own. Nothing depreciates your worth. You’re a princess. Walk through your days with head held high, knowing your Father and acknowledging Him with your steps.
