Junk in the Trunk

Insecurity reared its ugly head recently. I have been having a difficult time looking in the mirror and realizing that I will never look 18 again. With that said I have decided to dedicate this post to reminding myself that I am beautiful in the eyes of God, my husband, and my daughter. My self image takes a beating about once every couple of months and I struggle with feeling positive about the body that I have now. It makes me feel quite vulnerable to admit it but I am certain I am not alone in this, right ladies? I fall into the world's unachievable idea of what a woman should look like and I get caught up in my "flaws". In 1 Samuel scripture says, "Do not look at his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart." and in Proverbs 31:30 it says "Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." I am praying hard against Satans lies to me. I am beautifully & wonderfully made by my God. I have a husband who tells me everyday that I am beautiful and desired. My precious daughter loves me without condition, the size of my jeans means nothing to her! I want to be beautiful on the inside and have God's light shine through me, I want to be able to take joy in the woman that I have become and tell the world to take a hike because I AM BEAUTIFUL! I love my life and I love myself because God is with me, in me, & forever adores me as His child. Insecurity is a jerk. :)

  1. You are definitely not alone! And hey, not that this is the point of your blog, but some us don't have "having babies" as an excuse for no longer looking 18!
