I have insecurities. My face is like a battlefield. It bears scars from too much childhood sun exposure and skin cancer from a handful of times I spent in a tanning bed to warm my aching bones. Through the seasons of life, my derma has found itself sliced open repeatedly, frozen more than Elsa can imagine, and scraped deep enough to remove its pigmentation. Still, I am thankful for being alive through God's directive to medical teams caring for me.

I am enough. I know this in my heart, and the Word of God affirms it through my creation, but the world shows me a different picture. I try to stay focused on an attitude that embraces the word flawsome, a person who embraces their flaws and knows they are fantastic in spite of them, those who continuously encourage me, and the peace that God provides me even in my darkest moments of insecurity.
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, 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. 1 Peter 3:3-4
There is a Hope. His name is Jesus. This is where I place my trust. I'm still being molded for Eternity!
2 Corinthians 4:16, Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
