When we are unable to see any beauty or good in ourselves, we need reminded that we are being deceived! God is truth and he sees us differently!
God knew us before we were born. He knows the number of hairs on our head and the number of days we have on this earth. He sees our sins, weaknesses and worst moments; but he still loves us. He sees our strengths, achievements, potential and our future. God looks at us through pure eyes and sees the good and best in us.
"God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Sometimes we only see our weakness, sin, guilt, shame, wrinkles, stretch marks and imperfections. But we must not make this our focus. We must make God and his word our focus. We must make becoming more "Christ-like" daily and growing in relationship with Jesus our focus. "For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy." (Hebrews 10:14) We've been paying too much attention to the things that don't matter and will soon pass away.
"Those who use the things of the world should not become attached to them. For this world as we know it will soon pass away." (1 Corinthians 7:31)
We need to ask God to renew our minds and block out the things of the world that shout we are not good enough, thin enough, pretty enough, making enough money or successful enough. We need to stop comparing ourselves to our friends, neighbors, family and the things we see on social media and T.V.
We need to see ourselves IN THE TRUTH! The truth is that there's only one of us and our imperfections are NOT imperfect. Our imperfections are normal and it indicates we are a work in progress; we are in the hands of a Holy and Supernatural God who is at work in us!
"This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!" (2 Corinthians 5:17)
