What Acne Taught Me About Joy

One thought on “What Acne Taught Me About Joy”

  1. I have craters in my face from teenage acne, and I’m constantly asked by my family to cover it up with makeup to be more ‘accepted by the worlds standards of beauty’. Funny thing is it led me to Christ, needing unconditional love that I wasn’t finding from my own loved ones whom I thought would love me regardless of how I looked. We live in a world that is obsessed with image and external judgement of so called perfection. As if that’s the be all and end all to one’s worth. Hello people, there is often the kindest heart under the poorest coat. STOP judging according to the outward appearance and look on the heart of man for that is how God see’s us, through our hearts. ‘And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.’
