If anyone is gorgeous...it is you.

by Rachel

Song of Solomon says, "You are altogether beautiful, my darling. There is no flaw in you." Song of Solomon 4:7.

If only more girls knew this verse! I have been told by my friend's brother on a few occasions that I was "Fat" and "Ugly." My friend's brother says things like that to everyone, and doesn't really mean them. Of course that's not kind or right of him, but I shouldn't have taken him seriously. My friend is a fairly quiet guy, and he would never say anything like that to anyone. He is one of those people who never talks about other people. At. All. His brother just is a totally different person that he is.

Now, I am not either fat or ugly (that is not meant to sound vain) but when my friends brother said that, I felt like I was both...

My cousin (who was only 5) said the same kind of thing to me once. He was told to apologize, and when he did, he didn't even apologize to me...he apologized to my brother! He didn't even know who he had said it to! ...but it still hurt...

When people said those things to me, it hurt me terrible. All I wanted to do was crawl in a deep, dark hole and cry. I wanted to look perfect...
...but there was no flaw in me to start with! I was altogether beautiful.

You, my friend, are too, altogether beautiful! You are gorgeous! You look great just the way you are. There's no flaw at all. Not even one.

See, I know how it feels to be told those things. They hurt. Really. Bad.

Friend, if anyone ever tells you that you are anything other that what God made you to be, please remember this verse! "Song Of Solomon 4:7- You are altogether beautiful, my darling. There is no flaw in you."

You are lovely, my friend. Just how God made you! I have hurt myself emotionally and mentally trying to look "great." I implanted a thought that if I went out of the house, I had better have on face powder and mascara, at the least.

I worried so much about my look. One day, I felt so upset, that I just begged God to take away all these thoughts and feelings. And guess what? He did! Gradually, but He did!

If you ever have the slightest thought of being ugly, please remember this verse!
