I am revisiting a book that I read years ago.
It's called Captivating.
The words spoken in this book are reminding me what it truly means to be beautiful.
It goes so much deeper than skin deep. Society has such a wonderful way of making people feel horrible about themselves. And self help books have us rely on someone very volatile... ourselves. I don't want to help myself. I'm not very trustworthy. I'm not that strong. I'm not perfect. I'm judgmental and opinionated.
I'll pass on helping myself.
Thank the LORD that HE is real and is none of those things that I am. He is so trustworthy. He is beyond strong. He is perfect and his judgement and opinion are for my good.
And to top that all off... He thinks I'm beautiful.
HE thinks I AM beautiful! When the world around me tries to tell me I'm too fat or my nose is too big. HE thinks I'm beautiful. And I feel it. I know He does and it helps me move on with life. It motivates me to want to find any and every way to glorify Him.
Thank. The. Lord.
He is captivated by me.
I first read this book about 10 years ago. The book was recommended to me when I was going through a dark season of life. I was working through some things that happened in my childhood and I needed to be reminded about who cherishes me. And, here we are again in a season of life where I just need to be reminded, once again, that God finds me captivating. I'm His masterpiece.
I look forward to reading this book many times!
