Most women have body image issues in our culture today. That makes me so sad! God has made us and we are fearfully and wonderfully made. :). How I pray that God might empower us to look at ourselves the way He sees us . And I pray that we might desire Him far above all else and that we might allow Him to fully form Christ in us so that each of us might have that rare beauty that is so very valuable and precious in His sight – a gentle and peaceful spirit that does what is right and does not give way to fear. The only way we can have this kind of beauty is if we understand that our old sinful nature is dead in Christ and that if we are in Him, He has given us a new life, a new heart and a new spirit. As we allow Him to have full control and we completely yield to Jesus as Master, He will create the most stunning godly beauty in our hearts. That is my prayer for you!!!
