Work Of Art

A lot of people struggle with low self-esteem. I know I do. We can all see ourselves as worth less than we really are. I know that I’ve looked at myself before and thought “I am really not that important” or “I am really not that pretty”. It’s been a while since I’ve thought those things, but I still remember the feeling. It’s a terrible one.

You may or may not have had the same- or similar- thoughts, regardless of who you are. You could be the prettiest and nicest person on the planet, but you could look at yourself and see only the negatives.

I don’t have to look at you to know this: you are beautiful. You are amazing. You are fantastic. You are more than you know. You are A Work of Art. You were created by an amazing God, who does not make mistakes. It took me so long to realize that. When I look at myself and say “oh, I’m not very pretty”, I am literally calling God’s creation ugly. But God doesn’t make “ugly” things (although I might say that a blobfish truly is ugly ;)). He doesn’t make mistakes. He created you just the way you are, whether you are really short or really tall. Whether you are skinny or large. Whether you have a big nose or a small nose. Whether you have long or short hair. Whether you wear glasses or have perfect vision. It doesn’t matter. You are still part of God’s beautiful creation. And whether you believe it or not, God does. God thinks that you are beautiful. Isn’t that like really crazy amazing? The Creator of the Universe- who made the stars, the oceans, the planets, the trees- thinks that you are beautiful. In fact, he thinks that you are more beautiful than all of that. So don’t doubt for a second that you are not a work of art. That you are not His work of art.
