You are so beautiful to me. Can’t you see? You’re everything I hoped for. You’re everything I need. You are so beautiful to me. *
I had an interesting experience with God recently. I was sitting with Him and I began to see some things about myself I might have done differently had I created myself. Some were physical changes. Some were personality changes. I didn’t even realize that I felt this way deep down inside.
As I came to the realization that there were things I guess I didn’t like about myself, I also realized that I was exactly what He was “hoping” for.
When a couple find that they are expecting a new little one, they have hopes, yes about the child’s future, but also hopes like “I hope he has your eyes” or “I hope she has your smile.”
God said to me, “When you were being formed, I was ‘hoping’ for a petite little hispanic girl with dark curly hair and big black eyes.”
In that instant I felt loved, accepted and beautiful. I was everything He hoped for.
When you were being formed, He was ‘hoping’ for you. You are so beautiful to Him.
I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalms 139:14, KJV)
