As a teenager I never wanted for attention from boys.
I rarely got along with girls, so I grew up hanging out and quickly learned to like boys.
As a young adult, I worked in a mostly male atmosphere, and didn’t lack attention there either.
In those days, (and now when I do it for hubby) I took extra time and care to ensure I looked my very best……being as perfect as I could POSSIBLY be.
I’ve come to realize something that women fight every day.
I’m not perfect.
The “worst” part is…..I never will be….
Funny thing is that what I once dreamed would terrify me…..
Actually frees me!
I no longer stress over my frizzy/curly hair, my almost -0 acne issues, my frail fingernails, my dark circles under my eyes, my eczema prone skin, etc.
Do these things frustrate or irritate me at times?
Yet, knowing that I can’t be perfect, NO MATTER what I do IS FREEING! It allows me to slow down, I don’t have to spend an hour getting ready for the day.
Most importantly it takes the focus off of what I look like on the outside (which is vanity), to allow me to seek the Lord and beautify the heart and mind inside me.
My looks won’t get me anywhere worth while.
My heart and a life dedicated to Christ……
The possibilities are limitless!
Accept your imperfections!
They are your unique gifts from the Lord!
He is able to use all that is given back to Him for His glory!
