The world will try to mold you... but
be determined to be the woman that GOD
desires for you to be!
Who do you see when you look into the mirror?
Are you satisfied with who you see?
Feel unloved? Feel alone?
Feel as if no one cares?
How we see ourselves is so vital to our inner joy and peace in life.
At times we may feel awkward and insecure and it can be very painful.
In this life, it is SO important that we know "WHO" we are -
we are someone who is loved!
If I could plant a seed in your heart today,
it would be a seed that would blossom within you with the everlasting fragrance of love.
It is a love that God desires for you to discover.
He wants you to understand that HE loves each and everyone of us.
I pray that you will continue reading this post,
and finish with a confident understanding that GOD loves you for who you are.
To Him, each of us are a perfect "10."
It matters not what those around you or the world will say to you or about you.
In the purpose of life...all that matters is who we are in God's eyes.
We are a fragrant rose, blossoming and growing in and through His love!
THAT is the only image that matters.
THAT is the person we see looking back at us in the mirror.
We are loved!
Read : Psalm 139:13-15
O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret, (in my mother's womb)
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.
The words of Psalm 139 allow us to understand how God loves us and is always there for us.
He knew us as we were being formed in the womb and He knows us at this moment.
We truly see WHO we are when we see ourselves through God’s eyes.
You are loved.
You are precious.
God knows your joy and your hurt.
God will never leave you.
God thinks you are wonderful!
How do you think life could be different for you if you chose to believe these words
from God about you?
You are not expected or called to be a super young woman, a perfect athlete, a perfect person, a genius or Miss Popularity. You are called to belong to Jesus and know in your heart He loves you!
In closing this post, I ask you to pray. ..
Ask God to help you see yourself the way He does, and to be content in knowing that you belong to Him. Pray that...in knowing His love for you, you will find confidence and humility, not wishing to be recognized, but instead desire glorify and honor God in all you say, think and do.
