Did you know that you're beautiful? God thinks so! He created you just the way he wanted to.
The KING is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your LORD. -Psalm 45:11
Two days ago I found out about The Palm Project from Hannah via Twitter. The creators Madeleine and Emily just started the project about a week ago and the Facebook page has already caught the attention of many. Why, you ask? Only because every girl has a deep longing in her heart to be valued and treasured by the King of Kings.
I am beautiful. Just the way I am. Because of Him.
We all have imperfections and impurities because we've been tainted by sin, but despite our imperfections, we are beautiful because we were created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) who dearly loves us and sent his Son to die for us even while were still sinners! (Romans 5:8) If we have accepted Christ's free gift of salvation, then he has set us from sin and given us a new birth through the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:4-5)
I hope you're feeling beautiful because you are!
You can make a difference in the lives of your friends and family by showing them with your actions and words that you know they're beautiful. Take a photo of yourself with the words "I am beautiful" written on the palm of your hand and upload it to Facebook or Twitter to spread the word about The Palm Project and get your friends involved!
Don't ever forget that God loves you with a love that has no bounds!
The LORD says,
“Then I will heal you of your faithlessness;
my love will know no bounds,
for my anger will be gone forever."
