“I’ll give because of You, for I’m fearfully and splendidly made; Fantastic are Your works, And my soul is aware of it very effectively.” Psalm 139:14
Wanting within the mirror that day, the little woman scowled. “My hair received’t go the best way it’s purported to. This cowlick received’t push down and I’ll be laughed in any respect day.” We as adults attempt to quell the fears of a kid whose whimsy’s we dismiss as fooling around.” Go on, you’ll miss the bus. You look nice.”
However don’t we do the identical factor with our personal insecurities? “I’ve gained an excessive amount of weight this yr I simply couldn’t go to the vacation workplace celebration.” Or perhaps, “I must get cosmetic surgery since I’ll gross everybody else out with my wrinkles,” Or, “Perhaps this yr I received’t be a part of the train membership as a result of nobody desires somebody in a wheelchair to get in the best way.”
We condemn ourselves. We pressure away our pleasure. And we neglect that every certainly one of us is made in our Father’s lovely picture. Once we take time to let this sink in, we are able to smile genuinely, love accordingly, and replicate the wonder and favor of God.
So the following time you look in a mirror, smile, for God has made you effectively! Even when a few of your physique half’s don’t work completely or as completely as they as soon as did, the truth that you’re alive and respiratory is a ravishing present in and of itself.
Thank You Lord, for making me in Your personal picture. Right this moment, as I ponder my very own weaknesses, I keep in mind that in Your arms, I’m protected, safe, and absolutely able to doing no matter You may have for me. Thank You for making me to be like Your self. I obtain this treasured reminder at present, and select to dwell in obedience to that decision and present. Amen.
Thought: When you find yourself tempted to complain that your muscular tissues aren’t sufficiently big or your eyes are too drained, smile at your self within the mirror. Much more importantly, smile at others in your world at present. Not solely will your spirits shall be lifted, however you will note the God’s craftsmanship in your self and in these round you.
