Acts 8:1; 3 And Saul approved of his execution 3 But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.

Acts 9:126 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women

he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. 3Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. 4And falling to the ground he heard a voice saying to him, Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?

5And he said, Who are you, Lord? And he said, I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. 6But rise and enter the city, and you will be told what you are to do. 7The men who were traveling with him stood speechless, hearing the voice but seeing no one

8Saul rose from the ground, and although his eyes were opened, he saw nothing. So they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. 9And for three days he was without sight, and neither ate nor drank

18And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized; 19and taking food, he was strengthened. For some days he was with the disciples at Damascus

20And immediately he proclaimed Jesus in the synagogues, saying, He is the Son of God. 21And all who heard him were amazed and said, Is not this the man who made havoc in Jerusalem of those who called upon this name?......

And has he not come here for this purpose, to bring them bound before the chief priests? 22But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ..

26And when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple.

The issue with seeing ourselves as ugly is that we end up believing that our ugliness makes us unlovable.

Get alone with God

Romans 5:6; 8; 10 6For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.. 8but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.. 10For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son..

Hold to what you heard, not what others hear

Acts 22:9 Now those who were with me saw the light but did not understand the voice of the one who was speaking to me.

You may not see what you hear.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Dont let peoples perceptions keep you shackled to the past.

Philippians 3:1314 13Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

God sees beauty when He looks at you. You are the apple of His eye!

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings
