I am linking up with the gypsy mama and doing the 5 minute friday post. (http://thegypsymama.com) You write unedited for five minutes on a subject. The subject this week.. Beauty..
Beauty in a bathing suit? Lord are you sure? I was on vacation with the 2 beautiful girls in the picture above. Both gorgoeus, tan, and skinny. I felt like I was none of the above. I felt ugly, not tan , and like a beached whale. When I heard the Lord whisper.. BEAUTY .. you are beautiful.. even in a bathing suit? I whispered back.. Lord are you sure. I will never forget that beach vacation years ago now. I heard the lord whisper, you are beautiful…
Now guess what.. praise the Lord I feel beautiful. Even in a bathing suit. I have been on a radical journey to finding my beauty in the Lord. I asked him bodly do you think I am beautiful? And I waited for an answer. Then 6 months later I was on a silent retreat for grad school and an older gentleman came up to me and said God has an answer to your question..
Song of Solomon 4:7
I had no idea what question he was even talking about
But I went and looked
You are altogether beautiful my love, there is no flaw in you!
God declares me beautiful
How can I not agree?
He made ME!
Beauty even in a bathing suit!
(ok 5 minutes up!)
