  1. This is the most beautiful thing I’ve read in a long time. So true, so encouraging, so powerful. <3

  2. A wonderful reminder this morning that God has created each one of us perfectly, just as we are. Thanks for the scriptures to back it up.

  3. from one who listened to the lies for long enough to be really sick, thank you. the scripture – yes. I’ll throw in some counseling terms: have positive self-talk ready to combat the negative. scripture is it! thanks, christy1

  4. yay christy! this is so good…i just came across this singular verse and knew how it began, but didn’t know how it ended, so…

    The eternal God is your dwelling place,
    and underneath are the everlasting arms.
    And he thrust out the enemy before you
    and said, Destroy. ~Deut. 33.27

    You exemplified this verse to a T with this piece! Wonderful job! and Wonderful heart!

  5. Love this post. We need to teach our babies this early,
    and ask the Holy Spirt to avert the thief of this beautiful truth.
    Thanks for sharing.

  6. Christy,
    This is one of my favorite (in)courage posts. We all have these moments. Mine don’t always end with the same compassion showed here, but they should.

  7. Wonderful affirmation, and something so very many women can identify with. The constant critiquing in our heads. Having the truth of scripture right there in your head (or printed out next to the mirror) is a great affirmation of what’s real. That we are all beautiful.

  8. Thank you for writing this. We need to silence the lies and listen to and be reminded anew of His Holy Truth.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing this. For years I discouraged my ownself until God blessed me to see me as He do. I am still learning from people like you. Thanks again. God bless you
