We don't see ourselves as God does

A chapter in the book Psalms for the Journey

Jaded Mirror

by Rdfrdmom2

she gets up every morning
looks into the mirror
and fails to see herself
as she truly is

looking back at her
is a beautiful lady
that she cannot see
through the jaded mirror in her mind

gentle, loving woman
seeing only the scars
from her past
without the scarlet that's been applied

when told she is loved
she questions why ~
feelings of unworthiness
stand in acceptance's path

instead of the truth
she listens to a world
waiting to condemn her
just because it can

then she hears the whisper
"you are worthy
in My eyes
even though I know
who you are,
where've you been
what you've done
how you got here

use My eyes
as the mirror of your life
to see yourself
as you really are
and you will find peace
with yourself"

All too often, society makes us feel we are not "enough"; however, God says we are perfect as we are. A special thanks to booklotto for the use of "Let's Face It" to enhance this piece.
