Beautiful

If you were to ask me what my two favorite blog posts I have written since I started Enjoying the Journey I would hands down say Changes of ALL Kinds and Living the Journey: Beautiful.

Changes of ALL Kinds is my favorite post for many reasons, which is odd because it was written during one of the hardest times of my life.  This post was truly written with an over-flowing heart and no idea where the Lord was taking me.  It was the first time I was really vulnerable on my blog and the first time I shared far more than smiles and jokes.  The Lord did provide clarity and a few months later I am thankful that I was able to write this post and look back and see how truly blessed I am and the way the Lord was working in my life even when I didn't notice it.

Living the Journey: Beautiful is my second favorite post for many reasons as well.  I asked the simple question: When are you your most beautiful? and I got such joyful comments and emails with my beautiful blogging friends answers.  Come to find out, most of us feel our most beautiful when we are able to 'let our hair down'.

Today, I am asking you that same question again, but with a little spin and a little different context.  The other day I had just stepped out of the shower and I was feeling my most beautiful and the below song was playing and it's amazing words started to not only fill my bathroom, but my heart.  Such sweet words and such a sweet reminder that we are beautiful and loved.  So I ask you again today, 
When are you your most beautiful?  
Is it when you get sweet reminders from the Lord like I did, or when you let your hair down, or when you feel loved?



Beautiful
Days will come when you don't have the strengthAnd all you hear is you're not worth anythingWondering if you ever could be lovedAnd if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much
You're beautiful, You're beautifulYou are made for so much more than all of thisYou're beautiful, You're beautifulYou are treasured, You are sacred, You are HisYou're beautiful
Praying that you'd have the heart to fight'Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonightFor all the lies you've held inside so longThey are nothing in the shadow of the cross
You're beautiful, You're beautifulYou are made for so much more than all of thisYou're beautiful, You're beautifulYou are treasured, You are sacred, You are HisYou're beautiful
Before you ever took a breathLong before the world beganOf all the wonders He possessedThere was one more preciousOf all the earth and skies aboveYou're the one He madly lovesEnough to die
You're beautiful, You're beautifulIn His eyes
You're beautifulYou were meant for so much more than all of thisYou're beautifulYou are treasured, You are sacred, You are HisYou're beautiful, You're beautifulYou're meant for so much more than all of thisYou're beautiful, You're beautifulYou are treasured, You are sacred, You are His

I love that song! I usually feel most beautiful when I'm worshiping The Lord. I think it's because when you give everything up to God then your whole life just feels more beautiful.
