Pretty | Not Pretty

I've been feeling... not beautiful lately.

A few times I wanted to put a picture of myself on Instagram but I ended up deleting the photos in frustration.

My cheeks have filled out from this pregnancy.

Pimples after pimples have gladly taken up residency on my face in



obvious spots.

A hot mess is how I would describe myself.


I saw something on Instagram the other day that inspired me to shift my focus from self to God.

The obvious evidence of my pregnancy has clouded my vision.

What I should see is how God is using my body to grow a HUMAN.


A soul that He has great plans for.

A soul that He so loves He died for.



is my perspective of self, I no longer see myself flawed but purposeful.

And God's purpose is beautiful beyond measure.
