I apologize for not writing in a while. Shame on me.
This week has been a weird one. It has been a great week overall, but emotionally, or I guess mentally it has been a weird one.
You all know I am on a weight loss journey – a life changing thing right. I am trying to better myself. Well this week was not a good one with eating and the gym. I did not eat good and I only went to the gym twice and one of those times I barely pushed myself at all. I mean I walked out of there barely sweating. Usually when I go I am disgusting afterwards.
Well Saturday I couldn’t find anything to wear that I liked. I just felt awful. I felt fat and ugly. I ended up going out and doing some shopping and thanks to Ross I found a cute new dress for super cheap that actually made me feel good. Like I looked in the mirror at the store and felt amazing!
So today I wore that dress to church and I felt HOT hahaha. I felt beautiful, confident, and proud of myself. We all need those moments right??
When I was getting ready this morning I was listening to some religious music and this particular song came on that I like. It is called Beautiful for Me by Nichole Nordeman. It talks about God thinks we are beautiful because he made us. How he smiled the day He made us and how He wishes we could see ourselves how He sees us.
This was just a great reminder for me. I know this particular song is more towards girls, but it applies to all of us.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see what He sees? I know that I definitely do not see what He sees. BUT I am working on it. I hope that one day I will always be able to look at myself as He sees me.
We are all incredible with amazing gifts. We are all beautiful in our own ways. I imagine how happy God must have felt and how proud He was when He made us. We should be proud of who we are and what we look like.
Just like when we have kids and we think they are the most beautiful and amazing people on the planet … that is how God feels towards us. There is nothing we can do that will make Him see us otherwise. We are amazing to Him. We are His. And He loves us.
Don’t ever forget that.
The next time you look in the mirror tell yourself how amazing you are. And if you don’t believe it yet, keep saying it until you do.
