Beauty is in the eye of the beholder....Really!
I don't think that I am the only woman that looks in the mirror and see everything that is going wrong. Whether its my thick frame that I want to ditch for a size 6, my wide nose, my short height, my oh-so-kinky hair and etc. Often times I look in the mirror and say "Ugh I wish I was smaller. I wish I was a little taller. I wish my nose was a little more narrow. I wish I wasn't brown. I wanna be bright. I wish my hair was longer. I wish my but was bigger and my waist smaller." I feel like I could stand in the mirror for hours pointing out every flaw and counting the ways that I don't look like Lauren London.
One day, I saw this lady; tall, skinny, brown and in all honesty gorgeous. I said to myself "I wish that I loo womked like that." Then immediately I became convicted because by me saying that, I was basically telling God that He made a few mistakes when He created me, and He didn't. I am fearfully and wonderfully made in God's image; so I have to be beautiful because I am a reflection of beauty.
It also dawned on me when looking at the lady, that maybe she wanted to alter a few things about herself. Maybe she thought that she was too tall or too skinny or too brown. We all find flaws when we examine ourselves but we were created to be the reflection of perfection. We are BEAUTIFUL!!!
