“In a world where we see with our eyes, I pray for eyes that see the heart. Because charm is deceitful; beauty is vain. Flesh is unfaithful, and is of no gain. But a woman who fears the Lord will be praised. And I know that when He sees me it won’t be beauty that He longs to hold. It’ll be the love that He finds inside my heart.”
There are times when no matter how hard we try, we feel unable to love ourselves and see the beauty within us. In such times, we feel its so much easier to love and see the beauty of other people. After all, they’re not with us 24 hours in a day We don’t see all their weaknesses. We don’t have to live with their regrets. And we’re not the ones who have to carry their hurts. In such times, we feel overwhelmed. We don’t have enough strength to accept this person we see in the mirror everyday.
During such times, I’ve known of a way to help you continue improving your relationship with yourself. And that way is to see yourself through God’s own eyes.....In God’s eyes, there is no judgment, there is only acceptance. In God’s eyes, there is no pain too hard to bear nor weaknesses too weak to be overcome by His insurmountable strength.
God can embrace us wholeheartedly, opening us up yet sustaining us and healing us at the same time. God sees all our potentials. God sees our light when all that we can see are our shadows.
God sees this person who falls but who has the power to get up again and again. God sees this person who gets hurt but does not become hard or bitter, only softer, more resilient to change...God sees you. God cherishes you. God’s eyes love you more than anyone could ever love you as you really are..God sees you Beautiful in HIS EYES.
The cry of our heart needs to consistently be, “Lord, make me beautiful to YOU!”
No matter how hard we try, most of us will never live up to our own expectations, and we shouldn’t even try to keep up with the world’s ideas of “beauty.” Yet, Jesus said that His yoke is easy and His burden light. His call is simply, “Let Me live in and through you and when I see Myself in you I will see a thing of beauty—a vessel of honor, a woman of great worth.” Then we will be beautifully balanced.
Ask God to lift you above the shadows of mere human sight and give you His vision and perspective!
