More Beautiful You

You know that when I stumble on my new favorite song I must share! In the car I typically listen to the local christian station unless the kids request a certain CD. Today I heard the best song ever and it strikes a cord with me now that I have a daughter. It is called More Beautiful You by Jonny Diaz and you must play the above video. Here is also the link to his website so you can read the words. http://www.jonnydiaz.com/?p=77

It also ties into my second favorite bible verse of all time from Psalm 45:11 "The King is enthralled by your beauty, honor Him, for He is your God!" Can I just say that God is so good and that I think he has a great way with words! How many of us need to tattoo that verse on our foreheads and recite daily to remember that we were created by Him!

As I look on the horizon for Hope as she matures that is one of the concepts that I PRAY she will understand-that she is created by God and that He is enthralled with her beauty. Maybe I should post that scripture above her crib so we can start reciting it early:) I desperately hope that she will not succumb to the pressures of society and understand as the words of the song say that beauty is within her heart and that God alone can treat her as the jewel that she is. Oh, if we all could grasp that concept now how much more at peace with ourselves and our circumstances we would be. It is so easy to get caught up in a number such as our size or the number on the scale and let that number dictate our self worth.

I want Hope to understand the jewel that she is whether she turns out to be a jock, ballerina, book worm like her mother, or soccer star that her brother wants her to be:) I pray this God truth sinks into her soul and that she will never gauge her self worth based on whether she is a size 2 or 22! I want her to grasp the princess concept early and hang on for dear life-she is a princess of the most high God and he already is enthralled with her beauty:)

Please share this post/song with someone that needs to remember that the King is enthralled with their beauty!
