- Let us start seeking beauty in us
Of course we would not dare classify ourselves or compare ourselves with those who rate themselves so highly. How stupid they are! They make up their own standards to measure themselves by, and they judge themselves by their own standards! 2 Corinthians 10:12
So many people cannot enjoy life to the fullest because they are filled with complexes which keep them from accepting themselves the way God created them. They always spend their time yearning for what they do not have, with a desire to be like others. We have to know that everything God does is good. He made us to his image and likeness. Therefore, there is no other pattern that we can use for comparison or another picture for us to compare to.
He does not look for face or body. He only wants a beautiful heart that praises, worships, jumps and laughs for knowing that he is made to his likeness, that nothing can steal joy away from him; who shows with his attitudes that he accepts himself and is satisfied the way he is.
If we do not battle against this, we will spend our life with regrets and looking for a model for us to look alike. Then what is genuine and authentic in us will never be known, for it is hidden and we have given no value to it. It is a paradox: that which we do not accept is what others want from us.
Start seeking beauty within you and you will realize that you have attributes you had never seen which you just discovered, such as a nice smile, expressive eyes and, above all, a heart just like His.
