More Beautiful You

I went to a Mercy Me concert tonight.  They had an opening act by a guy named Jonny Diaz who I have never heard of before.  He played this song called “More Beautiful You”  As he introduced the song, he talked about how he is learning as he is recently married that women just want to feel beautiful but that we are given this image of what beautiful is and how that image is so warped.  I think this song and its sentiments are awesome!  The idea of not having to look perfect to be beautiful or that our beauty is not derived from what we do.  However, I also think, at least for me on this journey to “beautiful” part of it is knowing from within that I am beautiful.  Not NEEDING to have affirmation from some guy of my beauty or worth.  While it is wonderful to be told and affirmed of my beauty, I wonder if part of our beauty is revealed when we inherently KNOW and believe we are.  I don’t know if that makes sense or not, so go listen to the song and read the lyrics and BE BEAUTIFUL today!

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn’t straight her body isn’t fake
And she’s always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you’ve already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you’ve got a man but he’s got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there’s a man whose love is true
And he’ll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you’re not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It’s not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who’s strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you’ll see through the eyes of a little girl

  1. Beautiful. I’m gonna send that to my daughter. She’s 13 and at “that age”…I don’t want to see her growing up with a lot of the same beauty issues I did. Thanks for sharing, Kim.
