Beautiful

Armed with coffee and a full tank of gas, we pulled out of the driveway at 4:30 this morning, off on the next leg of our vacation. Even at that incredibly early hour, I was… still am as we travel this morning… hearing God sing over me that I am beautiful, treasured, His.

You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
You are made for so much more than all of this
You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His
You’re beautiful

Please listen to MercyMe sing their song, Beautiful, here.

Let me just say right here and now that every girl, every woman, needs to wake up hearing these words first thing in the morning. Every morning!! Though some women are lucky to have someone to whisper these words to them on a daily basis, most of us don’t hear them as often as we like or need. My husband says he thinks them all the time, he just forgets to speak them aloud sometimes.

But God NEVER forgets to tell me that I am beautiful. My Lord never forgets to say how treasured, sacred, precious I am to Him. He even wrote it out in a love letter to me, written in red. No matter what I look like, no matter what I’ve done or said, God thinks I’m BEAUTIFUL!! And this morning, He wanted me to know beyond a shadow of a doubt.
