What do you see when you look at me?
A woman of confidence and purpose, who knows what she wants and goes after it?
A woman who is focused and driven?
A woman of faith, who seeks to walk hand in hand with God?
A woman with a beautiful family and blessed life?
What do I see when I look at me?
Skin that is no longer as smooth as it once was.
Hair that is slowly greying.
A body that struggles with things that were once effortless.
Chances that weren’t taken.
Mistakes that were made.
A thousand regrets.
A woman that has stopped taking risks…..
….and has forgotten how to dream.
What does God see when he looks at me?
A woman who is fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14)
A daughter of the King. (Galatians 3:26)
A woman who has been called by God and is destined to make a difference. (John 15:16, Ephesians 2:10, Matthew 5:14)
A woman of purpose. (Psalm 138:8, Romans 8:28, Proverbs 20:5)
A woman who is strong and can overcome whatever life throws her way. (Romans 8:37)
A woman who is loved….no matter what. (Romans 8:31-29)
And what is the reality?
It’s whatever I CHOOSE to believe.
