God is a goodlooking God
Ecclesiastes 11:9 You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.
Ecclesiastes 6:9 Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless–like chasing the wind.
So remember that God will not be happy with you for not enjoying the wealth He has blessed you with.
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well".
You are created in the image of God, and God doesn’t make junk! Like a snowflake, every person is unique. No two are the same. God sees you as a masterpiece; and when you look in the mirror, He wants you to “know that full well.”
Song of Songs 4:7: You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you.
Beauty is from God and is a result of God’s creative hand. Beauty is good when it is not corrupted by sinful nature. Humanity, however, is obsessed with the notion of beauty. We desire to be beautiful, and we want the things we own to be beautiful. People pay money, have surgery, renovate, rehab, and the like all to achieve more beauty or meet the cultural standards of beauty. The idolization of beauty is all around us, and therefore, can be confusing, discouraging, and distract us from God if we do not understand beauty in alignment with its Creator.
“He has made everything beautiful in its time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).
So embrace the beautiful you that God made.
Happy Sunday to you all.
