Look in the Mirror. What do you see?
Because of social media you probably described what you look like and not who you really are on the inside…
I struggle with this EVERY day! Just this morning I was texting my friend complaining about my appearance,”Man I need to lose weight, I need to do better with what I eat, I wish I had a faster metabolism” etc etc etc…. How sad that this is how so many of us see ourselves..
This train of thought is so toxic! But how do we break what we have been fed our entire lives! How do we guarantee that our children will not grow up looking in the mirror and be blinded by societies view of them instead of who they really are!?
“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30)
On the inside I see Beauty, Strength, Honesty, Perseverance.
What a wonderful world we would live in if we looked in the mirror and saw ourselves the way God sees us.
I DARE you to change your perspective of yourself and focus on your self worth instead of focusing on how “fat or skinny” you are. I DARE you to LOVE yourself for WHO you are on the inside. I DARE you to see yourself as GOD sees you and how those who love you see you. I bet we would all be amazed how much healthier this world would be if we lived our lives from this point of view and saw people from their insides vs. their outsides. Don’t get me wrong being healthy and active is a must! But imagine how much more enjoyable and easier it all would be if we were motivated from a positive perspective rather then a negative.
Food for thought.
1 Timothy 4:8-9
8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance.
