I always start a trip by asking my husband to take photos of me, no matter how much of an argument I may put up. If only Solely for our kids to have pictures of their mama since I’m always behind the camera.

Our recent trip to Seattle was no different. But, he’d grab his phone to take my picture and I’d immediately blurt out “nooo I am so ugly today.” Of course, he’d follow through with my request for more photos, and ignore my whining. Without hesitation, I’d look at the picture and find how many ways I could pick myself apart. It’s like an inner competition to tally up the flaws.

I know I’m not the only one. Why do we do this? I’m no theology expert but I don’t think God formed us hoping we’d hate our noses, our chins, foreheads, thighs, our round faces, or our hair.

I am confident that the Lord thinks we’re all beautiful because He made us in His own image.

In other words, this is your Wednesday morning reminder that You are BEAUTIFUL, you are LOVED and you are WONDERFULLY made!

I think it’s the enemy & society that’s teamed up to make us think otherwise. 

I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Psalm 139:14
