Be kind and loving to yourself. Sometimes I know that’s hard. The truth is, we really can’t ….love your neighbor as yourself,… if you don’t love yourself. I’m not talking about the outward, egotistical, prideful, I’m all that, kind of thoughts, but rather, how you feel in your heart. You are beautiful in God’s eyes, no matter what you’ve been through or done. He loves you, no matter what! Isn’t that awesome!
This weekend, I was blessed to attend a women’s conference, Refres[her], here in Las Vegas. It was wonderful seeing God at work and moving in our midst. When we open our hearts to what He wants to show us, and are willing to see ourselves as He sees us, we can then be free of whatever holds us back. Most of us have had heartaches, addictions, disappointments, betrayals, etc. Sometimes we allow those things to define us, but that is not how God sees us. He created us in His image, with gifts, talents, and love. If we allow ourselves to see our image through His eyes, it will change everything.
This video was shown at the conference and was such a blessing, that I just have to share it with you. No matter how you see yourself, God sees you beautiful, through His eyes of love. That’s where change begins, our choices, our picture, our lives.
Enjoy and be blessed.
QUESTION: Do you believe you are beautiful in God’s eyes? What is holding you back?

Hi Ms D – thanks for sharing the verse- Ps 139:14- I love it and it just always makes me feel so special that God made each of us unique. Blessings my friend — Oh and BTW- My Mother always said ‘Pretty is and pretty does’ – also– I think it’s a Southern thing- and true. =)
In God’s eyes we wonderfully made, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 But, as children we grow up with others in our ears too! As we mature we find our self worth through Jesus….our beauty must be from within. My dad always said to me,”Pretty is as pretty does!” I keep those words close to my heart and pray I am worth of his comment always and stay fearless! Blessings Delinda thank you for your wonderful inspired writings.

One of your BEST blogs yet – and as a photographer with the same sentiments – it definitely touched my heart in a very deep way.
