His Beloved; a follow up on Beautiful & Beloved; Overcoming lies.

Hey there my beautiful friend! For today’s weekly inspo, I wanted to do a follow up of sorts on my last encouraging post, Beautiful & Beloved; Overcoming lies. I really, really emphasized how, as a child of God, we are holy and beloved, flawless and beautiful in the eyes of our Creator and Friend.

I am still so filled with joy and confidence from the moment when Jesus re-opened my eyes to His abounding and passionate love for me – so much so that He calls me flawless and beloved. It’s the type of thing that doesn’t just go away after a couple of days, it sticks and gives sparks of joy in my heart whenever I think of how He is thinking beautiful thoughts towards me. Praying and singing over me.

And guess what? I smile when I look in the mirror. I workout with a motivation not to look perfect, but to feel good. I’ve stopped really thinking about sucking in my stomach when I sit down. I felt good without my makeup on. I weighed myself and forgot about it. What joy and freedom He brings to our souls!

I’m sure that they’ll still be some days when I feel self-conscious and just – bleh. I will still struggle with things like that once in a while, but not in despair. Because I know who delights in me. I know that I’m treasured and perfectly created to be me – and I’m overwhelmingly loved for who I am because I was created into who I am by the One who loves me.

I hope that this little talk from my heart encouraged and empowered you today to step into the truth of who God made you to be, and embrace + believe the beauty what He thinks of you and the indescribable love that He has for you! I’d love to hear about your journey with self image and what God has shown you lately – let me know in the comments or through my contact form if you want to chat privately.

  1. Thanks so much for this, Hope! It was really encouraging! My journey with self-image has been a rocky one and I’m still struggling with the fact I don’t need to be perfect, but I’ve come so far and that’s what I’m thankful for💕

    • Aw you’re welcome, I’m so glad! I totally understand that, girl. I feel like self image is such an attack from the Enemy because we are made in the image of God. He doesn’t want us to realize the truth of who we are in Christ, so that’s why it’s so important to stay in God’s truth to overcome those lies! 💛
