I thnk you are beautiful!

One day in Kenya I looked up and saw a wondrous sight!


Flying across the sky were 3 birds. Do you remember the “sneetches” from Dr. Seuss? These birds so reminded me of them.

Their wing span was as large as an eagle’s, yet they looked more like a small black and white ostrich with a type of flopping feather crown that kept bobbing back and forth as they glided across the sky. A haunting melodic squawking followed them through the sky. A mismatch of colors, shapes and sounds yet breathtakingly beautiful! They are called the Brown Crested Crane.

Each day I would see them leave their perch high up in a tree and then at dusk they would return. They were never seen on the ground.

In their uniqueness was breathtaking. I kept thinking that God took great pleasure in creating them and I was taking pleasure in observing them.

Do you ever question why you were created in the way that you were?

I question why

  • my body is 2 different sizes 
  • My hair is so straight and fine
  • I have wrinkles 
  • My personality isn’t quiet 
  • Etc., etc., etc.

Think about how God sees you.

For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16 your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
Psalm 139

Psalm 139 tells us that God was intimately involved in knitting us together. Knitting takes every stitch into account. You were created exactly how God wanted you to be and He delights in you!

He sees everything that he included to make you, you! When he looks at us, I believe He says. You are beautiful!

When you look at the next verse in Psalm 139 it may help you in this area.

Verse 17 says, “How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!"

When you are struggling with self image, think about how God sees you! Flopping head feather and all!

Father, Thank you for creating us exactly the way you want us to be!
