Today we take time during our month-long series where we're praying for your body image issues to pray for a new view of beauty. Why do we feel compelled to try to look a certain way or be a certain "type" of beautiful? It's often because we have defined beauty the way someone else does. We may be defining beauty the way a parent or old boyfriend did. Or, we may be defining beauty the way magazines or Instagram does. But, are we defining beauty the way God does? Does God's definition of beauty even matter to us? Or, are we so sold on our own definitions of beauty--so convinced that we what we believe or "count" as beautiful is actually "beautiful" -that we right off definitions that vary from our own. Today, we explore all of that and more as we pray for a new view of beauty! Today we ask God to help us to want to be beautiful as he has asked us to be beautiful!

Praying for a New View of Beauty - Verse and action steps for today:

Verse: 1 Peter 3:3-4 “Your beauty should not come from outward adornments, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”

Action: Remind yourself outloud that one of your beauty regiments isn’t what makes you beautiful.
