Not beautiful

posted on: 5.26.2009

I think we Should all remind ourselves the prayer below when we feel that we are not enough, or just not beautiful. We all Have those days in which we regret how we look and wish that certain parts of us could be different (often leading in comparing ourselves with others) in hopes of being uniquely beautiful. I admit i have mornings and nights in which i can't stand the reflection on the mirror, but i also know that i shouldn't feel this way because we are beautiful. I believe that beauty from the inside out is much more precious than skin deep beauty (prov 31:30). I've even met people along the way that are pretty on the outside but their insides could be hideous.
Each part of you is a blessing. And you look exactly how God wanted you to look.

"Dear Lord, thank you for making each and every part of my being. For eyes that see, ears that hear, legs that move, fingers that feel, arms that hug, feet that run, a heart that beats, a brain that thinks, a tongue that tastes. Oh Lord, forgive me when I complain about Your workmanship and wish for something different. Help me to always remember that I am Your workmanship...and You make no mistakes.

In Jesus' Name,

[Prayer from here]

  1. This is so inspiring! Thank you for reminding me to remember that God made us all special. I need to print out that prayer so I can look at it when I'm feeling down on myself.

    Such a beautiful photo!

  2. This is just what I needed, thank you. I compare myself with others A LOT and day after day I look at my reflection and cringe because I look and feel so ugly and unattractive. However I'm trying to learn to be content with how god made me.

    "I admit i have mornings and nights in which i can't stand the reflection on the mirror" I have to be honest I don't understand how some one as pretty as you can ever feel that way, but I guess we all have our moments.
