Beautiful Dust

27 Feb

Do you feel beautiful? Do you know that you are?

So many times things in life make us feel less than. Things that have happened. Things people say to us. Even things we say to ourselves. But we have to remember that it’s what God says about us that matters. He is Truth.

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. Ephesians 1:4 (NLT)

Whenever, though, they turn to face God as Moses did, God removes the veil and there they are—face-to-face! They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.  2 Corinthians 3:16-18 (MES)

So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!  2 Corinthians 5:16-17 (NLT)

So when feelings of “less than” come, push them aside and spend some time in His presence. Because the truth is you’re valued and you’re beautiful. And when you’re in His presence, it becomes more real than ever.

Hope this video allows you that moment with God today.

Love you!
