Demi-Leigh Tebow On True Beauty
In an Instagram post, Demi-Leigh shared an inspiring message to women about true beauty. She opened up with how she overcame insecurity after people started placing her in a box, doubting she would take home the Miss Universe 2017 title.
“I was one of the shortest girls to go in and compete this title. And now if you think of models, beauty queens, they’re usually tall,” she said.
People started defining her in certain ways so that she wouldn’t win the pageant. She further explained how young girls nowadays do the same, defining themselves in boxes placed by social media, how to look and act.
“As a Christian, I’ve had to go back and define self-love, self-worth, self-image to myself. And the definition that I got was I need to have confidence in who God says I am,” Demi-Leigh stressed. “Not self-confidence, but God-confidence.”
The Miss Universe 2017 then shared Psalm 139:13 in the bible where it says, “For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Not Self-Confidence But God-Confidence
According to Demi, the real definition of true beauty comes from God.
“I believe true beauty shines from the inside out. And although being Miss Universe 2017 was a huge part of my life and such a tremendous honor, it does not define my beauty. The confidence that I gain from my Creator is what defines my true beauty,” she wrote in the post.
Then she pointed out, “Over the years, I’ve realized that no amount of makeup, clothes, or words of affirmation will ever make me feel worthy. But replacing self-confidence with God confidence will always make me feel worthy, because He defines my ultimate beauty.”
