A New Year, A New You, A New Love
Hello Roxie's Powder Room!
I want to first give honor to our Lord. Without Him, none of this would be possible!
As the end of the year is quickly approaching, I pray that you are diligently seeking a newness to everything regarding you, especially with how you look at yourself. It seems as if we tend to position ourselves underneath a microscope, looking at the things we would love to fix, enhance or remove. Your feet may be too big or your butt too small. Your fingers may be long or chunky, or your big toe may be wide. Your nose may be big and your forehead too. You have a pudge from carrying a baby and you are overweight. You have cellulite and hairy eyebrows. But even with all of this, I want to ask you this question: Have you ever thought that God made you this way on purpose?
In today's society, we must look and dress a certain way to be deemed beautiful and accepted to feel loved by people who don't even know the very hairs that are numbered on our heads. We're searching for validation in the world when we have already been validated. As Genesis 1:27 says, "God made us in His image". That means He meticulously thought about every single detail concerning you. God destined you to become who you are before you were in your mother's womb. God loves you unconditionally with a love you may never fully comprehend. So yes, you may possess imperfections (some you have control over, some you may not) but that doesn't mean nor does it give you permission to be insecure.
I want to encourage your hearts. We as humans tend to look at the outward appearance, while He, God the Father, looks at the heart. All of your imperfections do not change who you are. They actually call you to a greater level of acceptance and a deeper level of appreciation for yourself. You are perfectly imperfect; a person who is destined for greatness, on purpose.
Much Love to you all,
