Mirror Mirror On the Wall

Mirror Mirror On the Wall who’s the prettiest one of all? I close my eyes and hope to see me in the reflection. But everytime I open my eyes, pretty is far from what I see. I struggle so much with how I look. I can literally feel every roll on my body. Or at least that’s how I used to feel.

I was looking into the wrong mirror. I was looking into the mirror of the world and flesh. And when the my reflection didn’t line up with how the world says a woman should look, I would get down. I need to be skinnier, have longer hair, thinner face ect. Man it was tiring trying to keep up. And impossible. But you know what? That’s ok.

See I turned to God and asked Him to show me how He sees me. Does He think I am beautiful. And it didn’t take long for Him to answer. The first verse He gave me was Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. 

Let’s break this down. Charm is a quality and can be deceptive, fake, and beauty is fleeting, going away. But a women who fears the Lord, has respectful wisdom of the Lord, will be praised. When God looks at you He sees beauty. And when you live with Him in your heart, that beauty shines from the inside out. You don’t have to be the “prettiest”, skinniest, long haired, big boobed woman that’s in all the magazines. You just be who God created you to be. That’s perfect beauty.

Now when I look in the mirror I see me how He sees me. And I have never thought I looked more beautiful.

Thank you God for giving me the eyes to see me how you see me.  In this world there is so much pressure for your daughters to look a certain way. I pray for all the women and girls out there to be able to see themselves like you see them.  Beautiful just the way they are. 

In your name I pray.  Amen ♡♡
