Let me start with this. I am not like everyone else. I know this. I don't have fancy cars, or a fancy home. I don't have a unique and quirky sense of style. I'm not incredible beautiful or smart. I don't have kids or a college degree. I don't have one thing that I am super duper good at doing. I think I am one person that is completely and hopelessly BORING.
I came home for lunch today, feeling hopelessly BORING. Boring hair, boring clothes, boring life.
While attempting to smooth my flyaways on my hair, I looked in the mirror and thought "Girl, you need to step it up and stop being so pathetic." Then, like a hand to the forehead, I was struck by a scripture. (Let's be honest, this doesn't normally happen...)
Doctrine and Covenants Section 18 verse 10:
"Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God."
My Heavenly Father doesn't care how pretty I am on the outside.
He doesn't care what I drive or where I live.
He doesn't care if I'm talented or smart or rich or skinny or dazzlingly beautiful.
He loves me.
He loves me for me.
He loves the me that I am and the me that I will be someday.
He knows every one of my flaws...and He loves me anyway.
He loves me.
And that's really all that matters.
