There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be beautiful—in fact, we’re created in the image of the most beautiful Guy in the universe, and I love looking like my Father! But I don’t slave to look like Him by obsessing over my outward appearance anymore. I’ve learned to let Him love the ugly parts of my life, and the more that I’m loved, the more I look like Him. And the more that I look like Him, the more true beauty radiates from my life.

I love Christa Black. Met her at Bethel and she’s quickly become one of my favorite teachers.
