How did you feel after watching this true life reality? While this advert has come under fire from many critics and commentators everywhere, it begs us to question ourselves and I want to make a few statements and observations here.
Firstly, beauty for us as women passionate about Messiah, is a not an issue of skin, or outward beauty. I dont care what anyone says, the Bible is clear about it - Charm is deceitful and beauty fades; but a woman who fears the LORD will be praised. (proverbs 31:30) Society has been led astray by the enemy of mankind, in to believing that everyone everywhere has to look the same - forget about, embrace yourself.
Secondly, you need to choose not to internalise what you think others think of you! Who cares what aunty Shirley from ten years ago thought of you, or what your neigbor thinks of your hair - you are who you are - love yourself. Dont accept someone elses viewpoint of yourself.
Lastly and most importantly, everyday that you are alive, you can be sure of one thing. The most important thing, the all encompassing life changing amazing thing is that you are beautiful to God. You were worth dying for, you are worth Living for! God says "I love you, you are a dove, a garden enclosed, a beloved child, nothing can separate you from Gods Love." Internalise the truth because the truth will set you free and the truth is God says you are amazing when you live and radiate the Living King. Square your shoulders back and choose the beautiful door - because your spirit is beautiful and because your heart is Christ - Like. Doesn't matter what others think about you, all that matters is that you are accepted, valued, loved and cherished - that's the truth that will bring down Goliath - embrace it!!
