Have you ever counted how many times you looked at yourself in a mirror during the course of any given day? Have you ever stopped to look at yourself? I mean REALLY look, not a glance..a LOOK.
No doubt you may think about how you wish this were different, maybe that your nose wasn’t that big, or that your brows were more full, or even that your face wasn’t that round. The fact of the matter is..that reflection is YOU.
For many years I wished so many things about myself (physically) were different. When my husband would compliment me I wouldn’t take him seriously and ruin the compliment by saying something negative.
Our society is constantly putting women with “perfect” bodies before our eyes every day. This very fact makes women belittle themselves and turn to surgery to fix their “imperfections”.
Is there anything wrong with accepting ourselves just as we are? Certainly not! Life, changes, and having children causes so many changes in our bodies. We need to change our mentality and accept who we are and what we look like throughout the different stages of life. Look your best! Lose those 10 lbs that you promised to lose this year, be healthy, and exercise! Don’t spend your life wishing you could look like someone else.
Even beyond the physical appearances how are you seeing yourself in the REAL mirror, God’s Word? Are you a woman who is reflecting teachings of a church that don’t match up with the Bible or are you reflecting REAL proof that Jesus is dwelling inside of you? Are you acting in ways that do not mirror what Jesus would do or has that reflection somehow become distorted?
Take a look in the mirror. What do you see?
