Lucy and beauty

C.S. Lewis. You know our hearts so well. 

Watching Narnia today I was confronted with the scene in which Lucy uses the beauty spell in hopes of becoming more beautiful, like Susan. The conversation between her an Aslan that follows is an amazing, and eye-opening reminder of my value and your the eyes of God, and how much we are worth to Him...

  1. Lucy Pevensie: That was awful.
  2. Aslan: But you chose it, Lucy.
  3. Lucy Pevensie: I didn't mean to choose all of that. I just wanted to be beautiful like Susan. That's all.
  4. Aslan: You wished yourself away, and with that, much more. Your brothers and sister wouldn't know Narnia without you, Lucy. You discovered it first, remember?
  5. Lucy Pevensie: I'm so sorry.
  6. Aslan: You doubt your value. Don't run from who you are...

Let us not doubt our value or our worth. God doesn't want us to seek a beauty that is not our own. And with seeking a worth in beauty, (or what we think defines beauty) we loose so much of who we are, the true woman that God fearfully and wonderfully made.

Thanks Lewis that even the simplest  of  words can hold the greatest truths.
