A Beautiful Masterpiece

To see myself as beautiful as God sees me.” 

It’s a little twist on words, isn’t it?  I like to say this short prayer as part of my morning daily prayers.  I have tried for years to obtain beauty, never quite meeting mine or others expectations.  And then it occurred to me.  God sees His children as beautiful; He created us in His Image; and God saw all that He had made and it was very good.  We are a masterpiece, God’s Masterpiece!  If I could only retrain my thinking to see myself as God sees me ~ with tender, loving, compassionate, caring thoughts, with no harm ~ wow, what a difference that would make!

Quite simply said… negative thoughts do not come from God.  So where are we getting negative thoughts from?  God’s thoughts are only precious toward us, filled with blessings of the spiritual kind.  So the next time you are wishing for a beauty makeover,  think on this:

To see myself as beautiful as God sees me.”
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus.
  Ephesians 2:10

About Life and Heart Matters

I love sharing the stories I see around me every day - of life, family, of the heart and of the spirit. I've written for Guideposts and Angels on Earth magazines, participated in speaking engagements across the U.S and France, and enjoy working with humanitarian efforts. I also like spending time running, swimming and reading, all of which can be done on a beach somewhere!

  5. There are numerous cases handled by personal injury lawyers.
    They represent individuals and the families that have been injured in a car accident.
    If you try to litigate a case without a lawyer or with one who does not regularly practice
    in personal injury, you have a greater chance of losing the case and spending a great
    deal of money for nothing.

  6. 15, he posted some white Polo socks with red and blue toes.
    He will surely feel that your page is reputed,
    and will try to know more about your company.
    For instance, some companies print the small squares with uniquely designed matting
    that results in a larger photo with a big border.
