Girls of all ages need reminders of their beauty and worth. Below is an excerpt from a great book and it’s a great reminder to print out and give to the girls in your life. This is a quote from a high school girl, ““ A “perfect” dad in my eyes is one that sees their little girl as the most beautiful girl they have ever seen.” If a girl knows in her heart that her earthly father and her Heavenly Father sees the beauty in her – it will help them fight the daily battles of feeling “less than” in the world we live in.
“When God looks into the eyes of a woman, He sees all the beauty He created there. He sees every potential and every gift. He sees what can be and redeems what has been. He loves the curly hair that you wish were straight. He is taken with your smile and the shape of your nose. He’s crazy about big feel and knobby knees and every curve that is particular to you. He is the One who loves the inside and the outside of you. You were all His idea, and you are physically and emotionally beautiful to Him.
Do you want to dance? Does your soul cry out, “Does anyone see me? Do you think I’m beautiful?” Then hear again Psalm 45:10-11:
Listen O daughter, consider and give ear;
Forget your people and your father’s house.
The king is enthralled by your beauty;
Honor him, for he is your lord.
Enthralled by your beauty. That means captivated, smitten, fascinated, spellbound, and delighted. That’s exactly how the prince feels about the princess in fairy tales. But this sentiment is not fiction. Enthralled is how God in heaven feels about you. He is taken with you. Undistracted. Intensely interested. Emotionally connected. He enjoys your laughter and takes pleasure in the way you think. He is not bored with you, and He would never consider you ordinary.”
Taken from Do You Think I’m Beautiful by Angela Thomas, p 24, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2003
