Social media, television, movies, magazines, billboards all display what the world considers as “beautiful.” Although a lot of us would hate to admit it we tend to subconsciously compare ourselves to others on these various platforms. Unintentionally we want what she’s wearing, her perfect body type, or the hairstyle that she’s modeling.
What we fail to realize is that the majority of the advertisements are photoshopped, a lot of those perfect body’s have went under the knife and most of those perfect faces are hiding behind filters and layers of makeup. So what’s the common denominator in all of this? It’s fake!!!
Instead of justifying the way we view ourselves by the way the world tells us to look. We must look to what the Bible says about beauty.
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.”
So what does that mean to us? It is not about what is displayed on the outside yet, what is on the inside. You can have the best makeup, designer clothing, enhanced body parts; yet still remain completely void of true happiness and self worth.
Understand that when God created you he intentionally gave you those beautiful curves. You are God’s creation and in his eyes your are perfect. So begin to thank him for every curve, every flaw and every imperfection because, you are truly one of a kind.
– Take some time away from those media outlets.
– Use sticky notes to post positive affirmations around your home to encourage yourself throughout the day.
– I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
– I am God’s masterpiece.
– When God made me he took his time.
– Continue to meditate on what the Bible says about you.
