You Are So Beautiful — Yes, You!

on September 30, 2014

He will rejoice over you in singing

“You look beautiful tonight.”

The words rolled off his tongue and wrapped me in a shawl of happiness. Sometimes he would sing to me, “You are so beautiful …”

One of the nice things about being in a relationship with someone who was so vocal with their compliments was the affirmation I received from him. It was always great to hear that I looked nice and was attractive to someone.

As single people, we can often go long periods without someone appreciating our new outfit or the way we look. We can forget that we are attractive, desirable people. While it’s not the most important aspect of being in a relationship, it does play an important role.

It can wear us down and make us forget our worth. But there is good news.

I’d like to remind you–yes, you reading this right now–that God thinks you are precious. He created a beautiful creature when He knit you together in your mother’s womb. Even when you don’t hear it from another human, you have the assurance that the King of All cherishes you and adores you.

Today, when you look in the mirror, give yourself a big smile, and know that you are beautiful to the one who matters most.

He will take great delight in you; in His love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you in singing.                                                                                                                                                                                                               ~Zephaniah 3:17

    Beautiful, Tammie! Thoughtful & caring to share. And true. Everyone needs to know and feel they are beautiful to and loved by God. Thanks!

  2. This was a lesson that God reinforced in my life a few weeks ago, Carole. It surprised me because I tend to forget that God does love me just as I am. I figured if I needed reminded, there was probably someone else out there that needed reminding.
