Hey! You’re Already Beautiful 😍

Hey! You’re Already Beautiful 😍

My daughters smile is so real. Her hugs are even more. Whenever she runs into my arms I’m reminded of when she was 8. She told me how much she disliked her height and hair compared to other girls. I had to affirm her. That like me, she would have to learn to accept who she is in-spite of the differences. (Psalms 139:14-I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made) ‬‬After failing to convince her that we had the same crown, because I wore a press & curl religiously, I drenched my hair and watched her eyes widen with shock. It was at that moment that I realized my own baby never saw my hair in its natural state. Her exact words were, “What?! You have curly hair too?! So you don’t like your hair either? ”

(Psalms 8:2 – Out of the mouth of babes)
Needless to say, after research, transitioning, cutting off heat damage, I’ve remained heatless every since. Her attitude changed as she watched me embrace what God gave me. She started saying I want to be like you mommy, no longer comparing with someone else. That poured over into wardrobes, character, education, and prayer life. What would have happened if I ignored her? The world that she was comparing herself to would have gained influence and taught her to dress/think like it. Now she’s imitating me (I Corin 11:1 – “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.”) I gained her trust by coming down to where she was. I saw her need, heard her cry. That’s what God did for us, did He not?

Father I thank you for who you created me to be. You molded me especially to be just who I am. I’m made in your image. Fearfully, wonderfully, literally. I cast away all thoughts of low self worth. I speak to the thoughts of my mind to align with your thoughts concerning me. I command my mind to want only what you want for me. That I take on the consciousness and the image of Christ. That Your glory is set up in my heart. Be revealed in me and I in you always. My beautiful savior!! In Jesus name. Amen!
