What Do You See?...

You look in the mirror and what do you see?

Well...

She...
She saw regret...
Failure...
Even ugly at times...


The girl that always had a smile on her face.... 
Yes, that same girl was rejecting herself behind close doors. 
Finding no escape from a body that only felt like prison to her.
Nothing could possibly be worse than this...

One day a prince charming came into her life and everything changed... Finally a meaning to her life had come and no longer did she feel alone. He made her feel like the most beautiful woman in this world. Even in her sadness, he managed to make her happy. Her life slowly began to revolve around him. She was then introduced to someone very important in his life and from that very moment, that person also became important to her. The relationship became even greater than the one she had with the prince charming. It was something she couldn't even explain nor understand. However, her eyes were still set on the prince charming. Until one day... The day that rejection no longer came from herself but it came from her so called prince charming. In a matter of weeks she went from the happiest girl to the most miserable girl in this world...
or so she thought... 

All the sweet words had become bitter. Every clear thought became confusion and every slight sign of joy was destroyed. 



There she was all alone again...


Wait... no, no she wasn't.
Remember that person she met?
He was there all along.
Through every tear, through every moment of pain & hopelessness.
He remained.


If you haven't yet figured it out... 
She...
She is me...
I am that girl that set her eyes on a man to feel worthy rather than seek God but through that same relationship I was led to meet the greatest person I know today... Jesus Christ. 

I went from feeling regret to becoming grateful for every situation.
I went from feeling like a failure to knowing I can achieve anything  when God is at the center of my life. 
I went from feeling ugly to accepting that I am perfectly and wonderfully made by Him. 


I am still human so at times I still struggle but even as I write this I can't help but smile because God turned darkness into light when He walked into my life. 

So if this is you as well, just know that regardless of what you think you see in the mirror, God sees you so much better than you'll ever know. He loves you so much and He is with you even when you feel alone. So remember, YOU ARE NEVER ALONE.  

Psalm 34:17-20
"Pray to the Lord, and he will hear you.
He will save you from all your troubles.
The Lord is close to those who have suffered disappointment.
He saves those who are discouraged.
Good people might have many problems,
but the Lord will take them all away.
He will protect them completely.
Not one of their bones will be broken."



AMEN!
