This isn't an original idea. I am following suit from my friend Amanda. She posted the following with a beautiful picture of her daughter.
I had heard this Mercy Me song once before but hadn't really listened to the lyrics.
You must listen to them here. Read the lyrics...let them sink in, believe them, hold them in your heart because you are beautiful!
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Regardless of what is in that reflection...grey hairs, wrinkles, scars, extra weight etc...can you see how beautiful you are to your Maker?
For a long time when I looked in the mirror I saw something hollow and empty and ugly. But God transformed me, my husband, my family....He has made beauty from ashes.
And although I may not be the version of me that the world says I should be...I can see beauty - His beauty.
Today - look in the mirror and praise God for His beauty - YOU!
