You ARE Beautiful

Matthew 6:25
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?"

We all do it. We all judge. Have you ever been walking down a street, and see a girl FAR better dressed than you? Did you feel intimidated? We'd all like to think the answer was no, but deep down you know you felt intimidated. That's just the way the devil wants it.

How about judging yourself? When we look in the mirror, we see EVERYTHING. Every zit, and loose hair. We judge ourselves worse than we judge others. The more the devil makes us think we're 'ugly', the more we try to be 'perfect'. Let's put it this way- The more you make yourself  'perfect', the more you lose God. Every time you put on makeup or hairspray, you are covering up the way God intended you to be.

John 6:40
"My Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life."

A devotion is like a project to work on for the day. Today- focus on your relationship with God, and forget about being 'perfect'. Maybe pick up an old Bible, and study his word. Trust me, Taking one day for the Lord will change your life forever.

Did Jesus think about what he looked like when he died for you? Of course not.

And neither should you...
