Psalm 139:13-14 – For You have formed my inward parts; You have covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvellous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
When you look in the mirror and begin to criticize the way you look, the shape you don't like, the imperfections that are unmistakable to you, the hair that you do or do not have, remember this:
God made you that way. Some of us are fat, skinny, tall or short. Some don't have arms or legs. Others have eyes, but will never see the sun set. Many have ears and will never hear a baby's cry. Some can't feel a thing at all, yet they have all their body parts. Then there are those with pimples, a navel that's an innie or an outie, a long second toe, a short finger… and the list goes on. But God made you that way. He spent nine long months forming every single detail of you within your mother's womb. He gave you a distinct look, a shape all your own. He gave you all He could, because He made you in His image.
When you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, remember you're made in the image of the One Who created you.
Prayer: Father Lord above, help us to remember to thank you for every breath, every step, every sight, every sound. And give us the strength to look in the mirror each day and praise you, for we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Amen.
