Mmm Mmm Mmm I Look Good!

Take your phone, your scrapbook, photo albums and find that one picture of yourself. You know the one that you took that day when your hair was just right. Or the one when your smile and everything else was perfect. The sun was shining on the green tree in front of your house, giving just the right amount of light and shade to make you look like a model. Or the one that one day last year when you were getting ready to go out for a while and you had that outfit on, you know the one, the one that everybody that passed you on the street said was Dy-no-mite. Take a good look at that picture, feel good about yourself and brace yourself for what is next.
No matter how good you look in that picture. No matter how perfect the lens captured your outer beauty. On the inside you are broken. There, now that it is out there, let’s be honest. We all are. Every single person on this earth has something that makes their hearts cry, even when their eyes won’t. However here is the important part of this post. We all try our best to do what is right and we all get knocked around by life. However we have to hear the whisper that says: God loves you. He can heal what is broken inside of you. He sees a beauty in you that no camera will ever do justice. He placed inside of you potential and possibilities that even your mother couldn’t imagine. He wants nothing but the best for you and knows that those times that felt like the worst will only serve for your good. He doesn’t want you to pretend that you are something that you are not when who He made you to be is wonderful in his eyes.
So the next time a camera clicks, don’t look at the picture and think that image you see is beautiful because of the outfit, the hair or any of the above reasons. Look deeper, past what the lens copied, past what other people say about you, past the hurt you are hiding. Now look just a little closer and try to see the God in you. Believe that He is there. Believe He can heal you. Believe He feels what you do. Believe He will never leave you. When we can look past ourselves and see Him, then we will always say…Mmm, Mmmm, Mmm I look good! Focus on that and let it expand.
Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
I needed to speak an encouraging word for both you and myself. I feel God moving in my life and it feels good. I don’t understand everything yet. I don’t know how it will all turn out. I know I believe in Him. I know I TRY to do what is right by everyone I meet. I know that believing in the good in people makes me vulnerable at times but I am good with that. I know that I am able to endure whatever comes my way because My God strengthens me. I know I am not your typical “fighter” but I know I don’t have to be because I know who fights my battles and how they are won. I trust and believe that things will work out for my good. Lastly I KNOW That if God be for me…
Be Blessed

“Through You we will push down our enemies; through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, nor shall my sword save me. But You have saved us from our enemies, and have put to shame those who hated us. In God we boast all day long, and praise Your name forever.” (Psalm 44:5)
