A Glorious Greeting


“Good morning!

You’re beautiful with God’s beauty,

Beautiful inside and out!

God be with you.”

L U K E  1 : 2 8

What a greeting! I couldn’t help but think of you when I read these words in The Message this morning.

This is the way the angel Gabriel greets a young, unmarried, little-known, virgin Mary. He’s about to rock her world {and ours} with the revelation that she will give birth to a son…the Son of the Most High God. But first, God greets her with what is most true about her: she is beautiful with His beauty.

Bravehearted Beauties, this is the way God greets YOU. You’re beautiful with God’s beauty. Beautiful inside and out. Not because you feel it, not because you try, not because the mirror, a man or your mother says so. You’re beautiful because that’s what God says is true about you. Beauty is what He sees when He looks at you. It’s who you are. It’s how He made you.

What if we let this greeting that kicked off the whole Christmas story be the greeting we hear as we rise each morning this month? What if we dare to believe these words are really true of us?

Enjoy the truth, Bravehearted Beauties!
