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.
