God created you just as you should be:
Unique, special and beautiful.
He sewed up your insides into one perfectly fitting package
and called it you.
His brushstrokes washed your skin with color
and filled your eyes with light and sparkle.
His very breath reddened your cheeks
and kissed your tender lips with pink.
And your heart was made
to beat in time
All your talents,
all your treasured qualities
given especially for you
and to share.
All your quirks and all your idiosyncrasies,
they are a part of the pattern
that made only you.
Like each vibrantly colored fall leaf,
each glistening white snowflake,
each multi-hued rainbow,
you were created in beauty.
When God looks at you, right now, in this very moment, He loves you.
He loves you just as you are.
He also knows you were created for more,
so much more.
Your life has value.
Your are worthy because He has made you so.
You are His prized possession.
A masterful work of art.
He delights Himself in you always.
And He sings
And my prayer is this:
"May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride
and expectation with which God sees you in every moment."
