Mirror Mirror

Mirrors can be really mean.

A mirror reflects back what we think of ourselves. 99% of the time, those thoughts are negative.

“Gosh, I wish I was thinner”

“My hair doesn’t look like hers”

“Why can’t my skin just be clear?!”

I’ve had so many moments where I just stare at the mirror in disgust. My mind races through every single insult imaginable as I look and point out every single flaw I think I have.

A friend once told me, “When you look in the mirror, try to look at yourself as God sees you.”

He sees you as kind.

He sees you as brave.

He sees you as beautiful.

He sees you as perfectly and wonderfully made.

He sees you as loved.

Look into the mirror today and challenge that mean voice inside your head. Remind it of the truth.

That you are perfectly loved.

Thank you, Rachel. You left out an obvious "flaw" in your list: "You look OLD." I can remember being thankful as the years passed I always looked younger than my age. I attributed that to my beautiful mother who always looked younger than she actually was. Then the day came that I looked in the mirror and thought, "Who IS that? He's so OLD." And ever since then I've had an aversion to looking in the mirror. So....I am grateful to you for reminding me to ignore the superficial and see more deeply when I look in the mirror. Thank you SO much. Dave Webb
