I know a lot of people would respond to that question and say: what is there about me that's worth celebrating? You, my dear one, were put here for a reason. There are no mistakes. I find, particularly as women, we are so hard on ourselves. I don't know many women that like pictures of themselves. We are our harshest judges.
Now think about a dear friend - someone that you love and loves you. Do you look at them and think: I sure don't like how she looks. Of course not. When you see that person from afar, it brings joy to your heart. You see their character first and love them simply because of who they are. Wow!! If we could extend that same grace to ourselves.
Our world is filled with magazines and images of near-perfect people however if you walk through a mall or grocery store, you rarely see a 'magazine-worthy' person. Most people are like you and me. And you know what? That's okay. In fact, it's more than okay. I Sam. 16:7 says this: "The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." Wow! Lord, grant us Your eyes to see each other and to see ourselves!
Don't get me wrong. I like to look nice and take care of myself but let's get beyond that and appreciate who God made us in ALL aspects of who we are. I know I think you're pretty great!
