Where the Definition of Beauty Lies

I wrote this post on Facebook back in 2013. Many women still need to hear this and embrace the way God has made them. God has made each of us unique and we should not be ashamed about being unique!
Be blessed 🙂

My Post from 2013:
I recently had encouragement from a brother and sister in Christ who identified my faith and wisdom. I had patients that I know and love tell me that they admire me and appreciate what I’ve done for them. Yet, I didn’t feel worthy of these compliments and I wondered why. My black sisters will understand when I say my thinking has been influenced by how the media portrays us. On top of that some of the men in the culture give us a bad wrap. So, if I’m a child of God, why am I listening to what the media says or the negativity of others? Why am I choosing to be defined this way? I’m defined by my Lord and Savior who created me as I am in the first place. If you my sisters realize this, there is no room for jealousy of others or self loathing. I know it’s hard to escape what is being said about you and it can cut to the heart and make you cry, but I for one chose to be defined by God and not the media or society. I choose to embrace the advice and encouragement of those in Christ who know me and love me.
