I'm a woman. Shocking, I know. My husband doesn't understand how I work. He doesn't understand that I have 'cute days' and 'fat days'. He just has 'days'. But as a woman, I have emotions. And they change a lot. The hormones can be all over the place, and that little voice in my head can really try to tell me lies. It's so difficult not to listen. I so badly want to ALWAYS be a confident woman, content in who God created me to be. But, He created me as a woman so unfortunately it doesn't work that way. I have fat days, and skinny days. I have days where I feel confident and nothing can get me down. I have days where everything feels as if it could go wrong and I won't fit through the door frame. Ouch.
Today, I'm having a confident day. I'm working on being confident and loving myself the way God made me to be. I look cute today! I know it's not about outward appearances. But there is something about jeans that fit well, high heels and cute dangly earrings that just help make any woman feel better. :)
But even better...there's something about feeling beautiful from the inside out because of the person God made me to be!!
1 Peter 3:3-4 'Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyle, expensive jewelry or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. '
