For years I have struggled with acne and hyperpigmentation! And then I finally gotten it to clear up, but when I had my son my hormones shifted and my face freaked out ALL OVER AGAIN 😣😫😖! So now I’m 30 with all these marks on my face! And I prayed “but God I thought this was only supposed to an adolescent problem!” So, many days, I struggle to find the beauty in my flaws!
A few months ago I was at a church event and this lady I was being introduced to said, “ OMG you are soooo beautiful!” And I looked around like who she talking to?! And she took her hand in a circular motion around her face and “you’re like really gorgeous!” And I just thought, “wow she sees that with all these marks on my face!” Every time I looked in the mirror or took a picture all I could see is these marks on my face(But one thing about me is I never feel the need to hide my blemishes behind makeup, it is what it is even though I don’t like them I embrace them!) But today I had in my mind to put make up on to take pictures with my new hairstyle! However when I finished getting dressed something said no just go with a fresh face, and so I did!
And when I got home I decided to take a few pictures and for the first time in a REALLY LONG TIME I felt beautiful, marks and all!
I think this is a great illustration of how God sees us! We see all the flaws and mistakes, and He’s like the lady at my church — He just sees us as His beautiful children, worthy of His love and He’s just waiting for the day where we see ourselves through the lens He sees us through! Where we can still see the flaws and mistakes but still say I’m beautiful, I’m chosen, I’m His! None of my flaws, mistakes, or setbacks disqualify me from Him or His Love! ❤️ Love you guys!
