It can be difficult, if not impossible, to see past our imperfections and see ourselves as someone created in the Image of God, someone who is love, someone full of grace and potential. I came across this prayer (below) and I hope that it reminds you of who you are and whose you are.
Lord, sometimes when I look in the mirror I’m not too happy with what I see. Please let me see me the way you made me, beautiful and perfect just as I am. Help me to hold this image in my mind and heart as I follow my life’s path. Allow others to witness your light shining through me as I walk with confidence, grace and a smile on my face. Amen.
