Me Without Makeup

Natalie

Honestly, it’s sad how long it took me to find this picture. I wear eyeliner in almost every recent picture I have. This one is almost a year old.

I just turned 15, and I’m a freshman, even though everyone seems to think I’m much older. For the past year and a half, I’ve had a constant struggle of believing I’m beautiful. All of my closest friends are seriously drop-dead gorgeous, and I am an avid player of the Comparison Game. My friends will tell me I’m pretty and I automatically brush it off. After all, haven’t they seen themselves lately? I’m nothing special compared to them. However, God makes beautiful things, and I’m no exception. Nobody is an exception.

So this is what I’ve learned, and I hope it’ll help someone else, too. God has never made a mistake. He sees us all as beautiful, beyond beautiful. Don’t base your value off how many guys think you’re beautiful, or how many guys ask you out. You can’t rely on that lasting. If you base your value off how much Jesus loves you, that will never change. His love is unconditional. He will never stop loving you. You can’t do anything at all to make Him stop loving you. He loves you so much.
