As I was getting ready this morning, the Lord spoke to my heart in such a tender way and I wanted to encourage you with His love for you today.
I have a compact mirror that I use when putting my makeup on. Its a double mirror. The top mirror is a normal one that has the words, “God thinks I’m Beautiful,” on the bottom it is a magnifying mirror. I was putting my mascara on when I noticed that the magnified mirror was smudged from my makeup covered fingers. It was dirty and did not reflect my face well. I was in a hurry, so I looked up to use the regular mirror, as it was nice and clean. As I did, I read the words, “God thinks I’m beautiful.”
I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me. He said, “Gypsy, I think you are beautiful. I want you to see yourself the way I see you. When you look at yourself, you often magnify your blemishes and sin. Much like that mirror, that is dirty. You see yourself through a dirty lens.
But I see you as pure, without any blemishes. I want to give you my eyes, to see as I see, for you are a reflection of my beauty.”
I immediately welled up with tears as I not only heard His words, but I felt His love for me. I love when God speaks to me through simple things. I want to encourage you today, and remind you that God loves you and thinks you are beautiful. He sees you, without sin. No matter what you have done or how dirty you see yourself. I pray that today, God would give you His eyes, so that you will begin to see yourself the way that He sees you. Lord, give us your eyes to see ourselves the way you do, and help us to remember that we are a reflection of your beauty.
“For we are Gods masterpiece.”-Ephesians 2:10
