Earlier in the summer, I got to share how absolutely beautiful YOU are.
And I am here today to tell you that you are not to let anybody or any voice tell you differently.
The thing is…sometimes we do.
We listen to others and what they have to say to us and about us—even if it’s not the truth.
We listen to society as it judges us—even though it does not know us.
And we listen to how Satan diminishes us—even if we have been told that he has NO HOLD over us.
I just want you to know:
You are not to live a life of shame.
You are not to live a life of guilt.
You are not to live a life of ugly…
You are set free in Christ!
You are beautiful in Christ!
You are not what others say you are.
You are only who Christ says you are…
And His mercies are NEW every morning.
Great is His faithfulness.
Friends—we sometimes allow others to overrule the only voice that has any weight in our being—God’s.
Don’t do that.
Let him heal the past.
Forgive the hurts.
Cleanse the wrongs.
You are beautiful.
You are worthy.
“But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7
