Looking Glass

How do I look?

Self-esteem, an issue many struggle with each day.
Self-doubt and self-awareness for many seems to stray.
They look into a mirror seeing nothing but the bad.
They see and think of all the things they really wish they had.

But God sees us so clearly, He sees what He has made.
He sees the whole of each of us and for that the debt He paid.
He wants our lives to be so filled with goodness and with love.
Accept the gifts of grace He gives from the heavens up above.

Be thankful for the wonder of a day to be so rich
in all the things he puts together with each tiny stitch.
He knit us in our mother's womb and brought us into being
so we could be the creation of God in flesh, these are what we should be seeing.

Look deep inside and know He has a plan for you and me.
Look in your heart, not the mirror, for the person you can be.
You ARE a treasure, a gift from God, and He wants you to know
you're loved so much and with His love into beauty you will grow.

poem by: Norma Spiller

Pray this week for someone to accept the love of Jesus and to know the person they can be IN HIM!


Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."

Psalm 139:13 (NIV)
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
