God Loves Ugly

The words "God loves ugly" are lyrics to a song which you will find at the bottom of this post.  I have listened to this song now for a while.
I am not even sure when it came out, I just know that I have been
listening to it now for a while. And last night while designing some cards
and listening to one of my random playlists on http://www.playlist.com/ this song
by Jordin Sparks came on.  I had chosen an older playlist of mine and I
didn't even know I had this song on there.  But you know what I REALLY
love?  I love a song that inspires me, moves me, lifts my spirits, and just really gets me going.  This song "God Loves Ugly" has always done that to me,
and while listening to it for about the hundreth time last night, it just
made me want to share it with you all.  To let you all know that these words in this song REALLY MEAN SOMETHING.  Please read them, I promise you that you will not be sorry you did.
GOD LOVES UGLY
by:Jordin Sparks

You said that I wasn't pretty
So I just believed you
And you said that I wasn't special
So I lived that way
With critical gazes and brutal amazement
And how my reflection could be so imperfect
With all of my blemishes, how could somebody want me?

[Chorus]
But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way that I see
Oh God takes ugly and turns it into something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful 'cause You love me
Whoa, oh


I tried to clean up the outside all shiny and new
Worked overtime to thin up and look right
But inside I knew that deep in the bottom were secrets I thought I could try to ignore
Old ghosts in my corridors never get tired of haunting the past that's in me


[Chorus]

 
Help me believe why You love me when I know You see
You see everything
Help me believe why You love me
When I know You see inside and You still say I'm beautiful
Your telling me I'm beautiful
Your screaming out I'm so beautiful
And I'm finding out I'm beautiful
Your making me so beautiful
And I can see I'm beautiful
'Cause You love me
Whoa, oh

You said that I wasn't pretty
So I just believed you
And you said that I wasn't special
So I lived that way
With critical gazes and brutal amazement
And how my reflection could be so imperfect
With all of my blemishes, how could somebody want me?



[Chorus]

But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way that I see
Oh God takes ugly and turns it into something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful 'cause You love me
Whoa, oh



I tried to clean up the outside all shiny and new
Worked overtime to thin up and look right
But inside I knew that deep in the bottom were secrets I thought I could try to ignore
Old ghosts in my corridors never get tired of haunting the past that's in me


[Chorus]


Help me believe why You love me when I know You see
You see everything
Help me believe why You love me
When I know You see inside and You still say I'm beautiful
Your telling me I'm beautiful
Your screaming out I'm so beautiful
And I'm finding out I'm beautiful
Your making me so beautiful
And I can see I'm beautiful
'Cause You love me
Whoa, oh

You said that I wasn't pretty
So I just believed you
And you said that I wasn't special
So I lived that way
With critical gazes and brutal amazement
And how my reflection could be so imperfect
With all of my blemishes, how could somebody want me?

[Chorus]

But God loves ugly
He doesn't see the way that I see
Oh God takes ugly and turns it into something that is beautiful
Apparently I'm beautiful 'cause You love me

Whoa, oh

I tried to clean up the outside all shiny and new
Worked overtime to thin up and look right
But inside I knew that deep in the bottom were secrets I thought I could try to ignore
Old ghosts in my corridors never get tired of haunting the past that's in me

[Chorus]

Help me believe why You love me when I know You see
You see everything
Help me believe why You love me
When I know You see inside and You still say I'm beautiful
Your telling me I'm beautiful
Your screaming out I'm so beautiful
And I'm finding out I'm beautiful
Your making me so beautiful
And I can see I'm beautiful
'Cause You love me
Whoa, oh

So what did you think?  It really adds to it when you hear the song and read along
with the lyrics.  If your interested in hearing the song please check it out on whatever music
site you chose.  I'm sure it's on YouTube.com.  But this song really speaks to me in such a way that I can really relate because for more than half of my 39 years I felt ugly; inside & out.  I now know that
yes I do indeed hit those rough patches of life and feel very bad and very ugly.  But I also know
that there is always a reason, a person, a dream to fulfill, something out there to make me go on
and know that I am who I am and that is a woman who has goals and asperations, a mother of two wonderful kids, a sister to two fantastic brothers, a daughter to loving mother, and a girlfriend to a great guy.  All these things make me feel and know that I am beautiful inside & out; just
like the song says.
