Saggy boobs, stretch marks, bulging bellies, c-section scars--in the words of Hannah Kerr, every scar on your skin is a beautiful reminder. Of a moment when you didn't give in and you walked through fire.
Despite what society, the world, your mind, and social media may tell you, YOU AND YOUR MOM BOD ARE BEAUTIFUL. It's a cliche, but it's so true. You carried and birthed a whole beautiful being.
9 months of pregnancy and God only knows how many hours of labor later, YOU DID IT! Wear that body proudly. God chose it to house one of His fearfully and wonderfully made creations; He must've seen it as something special.
It is not always easy to scroll on social media and see the celeb moms or your super thin friends, who pushed out a baby then instantly looked like J-Lo. Silence those lies from the enemy and speak God's truth over yourself.
"I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."
- Psalm 139:14
Remain rooted in the word and be thankful for the blessing you received. Your baby was worth every scar, stretch mark, and belly bulge.
"Body, you are wonderfully created by God. You are not my enemy." - Wendy Backlund
