Me Without Makeup

Emma

I’ve always struggled with self confidence and I’ve never had much self esteem. I’ve been overweight my whole life and I’ve always been told that I am. Recently I lost 20 lbs and I didn’t do it to please anyone. I did it for myself and to be healthier. I try to remember that a beautiful woman has a beautiful soul and loves the Lord. I don’t get much attention from guys but I know that I don’t want attention from guys who only want me for my looks. I want a man who loves the Lord and thinks I’m beautiful because I love the Lord I want to find the “one whom my soul loves” and I know i have to “wait on the Lord” to find him. He will love me for my heart and because he loves my heart, he will love my looks. πŸ™‚
Proverbs 31:25-31
“She is clothed with strength and dignity
she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
β€œMany women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
