All women have these three things in common — a desire to feel beautiful, a desire to be accepted for who we really are and a desire to know we are loved unconditionally.
Men want to be respected and honored for what they do, and we women find value in being loved because that’s how God designed us. Just like men, if we don’t get those desires met we end up feeling like something is missing.
As, women look to the men in our lives, and rightly so because God made us that way, to affirm us in these areas. Men are supposed to be a representation of God who is the loving, heavenly Father of us all in their wife’s and children’s lives.
“The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Corinthians 11:3
If we are not taught that we are beautiful, accepted for who we are and loved unconditionally at an early age it will take work on our part and those who love us for us to believe that we are beautiful, accepted and loved and that someone else could think so too.
On the other hand, if you had a loving father who told you these things or you married man who affirmed these three things in you, or even if another male figure or your mother built you up in these areas, they will bloom in you against all odds because words are like seeds. They grow even in the worst conditions.
Wrong thoughts are the gateway for the lies we believe about ourselves to be established and grow into strongholds.
If you were never affirmed by a father, a mother or someone early in life and you get involved with the wrong man/ men you may end up taking the wrong path in life. If you feel ugly, rejected or despised, these seeds, will continue to grow in your heart and rob you of any good thoughts you might establish about yourself.
When we accept Jesus into our hearts He gives us the ability to believe differently about ourselves and our lives. If you will dare to accept as true what the Bible says about you then you will have confidence to believe that you are accepted by God just as you are, loved by Him unconditionally and incorruptibly beautiful in His eyes.
Believing God causes us to believe in ourselves. The amazing is that when you change your heart your life will follow. When you learn to see yourself as beautiful, accept yourself as you are (with room to grow) and love yourself unconditionally it will change how other people see you and how you allow them to treat you.
You have to know that you know, that you know….
You are beautiful in God’s eyes.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Beautiful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. Psalm 139:13-18
You are accepted by God.
“He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:4-6
You are loved by God.
“Neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39
Beloved, if you don’t clothe your heart in these truths then you will wear the garments of lies that the devil and the world have made ready for you.
Question: Do you agree? If not, what do you think are the things that we women all have in common with each other?
