I loved Gypsy Mama post about understanding what real beauty was and wasn’t. It made me think of a paragraph I wrote on the movie The Vogage of The Dawn Treader, I LOVED this scene in the movie with Lucy and Aslan, it spoke to me so much.
It is where Lucy is wanting so bad to be beautiful and Aslan reminds her of her value. We all question our value at times, don’t we? Are we pretty enough, are we in the right circles, do our kids fit in, and on and on often forgetting that God himself created us, HE doesn’t make mistakes or wish HE could redo. We all have a purpose, to Glorify HIM and HE gifted us with exactly what we need to do that.
We know that Aslan represents Jesus in the books/movie and during the scene where Aslan is speaking to Lucy I thought of Jesus.
What would HE say about my insecurities at times?
Does He think I’m beautiful? The answer that came back was YES!
I am precious in his sight, HE created me and I don’t want to lose who HE made me to be.
God loves ME, regardless of how much I weigh, how I dress, is my nose small enough and on and on the list goes. Women have a way of making themselves less worthy then they are because they wear the world’s standards and forget what God’s standards are.
We are WORTHY, is it because of us? NO, it is because of HIM!
