Accepting Oneself

This is just a silly little post that I thought would be fun. I am learning to accept and love myself and I thought it would be fun and therapeutic to post a collage picture (my son has been playing around with a photo editing software) showing the good, the bad and the ugly! It does not matter what we look like on the outside, the Lord looks at the heart. For years I obsessed over outward appearance (and inward for that matter ;-)
So, without further ado, never before seen photos!

I am fearfully and wonderfully made. God chose me before the foundation of the world. He loves me with an everlasting love. I am the apple of His eye and my name is carved in the palm of His hands. Beauty is what He sees when He looks at me.

Notice the pictures are really small, probably impossible to really make them out? Hey, I didn't say I had arrived, just a work in progress! Pooey, I just realized if you click on it, it enlarges it!!!

This also beautifully displays the changes that we go through. As we allow God to change and transform us, He beautifies it.

I know it is strange, but even as a guy, I myself have struggled with accepting the way God designed and created me. There are cetain abilities I want to posess, or features I would really like to have, but I really just need to be thankful for what and how God has made me. I could have it a lot worse...

We are created in His image, and He doesn't make junk. Each and every one of us, are His masterpieces. Praise the Lord!
