The woman looking back at me

The woman looking back at me

In a world driven by external beauty standards and constant comparison, we can quickly lose sight of our true worth, beauty, and identity. Looking into the mirror, we often see a reflection distorted by society's expectations, flaws magnified, and insecurities heightened. But who are we? Do we recognize the woman looking back at us? Is she loved and accepted? Will she ever be? Is she enough?

Who is the woman looking back at me?

Understanding ourselves and our true essence beyond our physical appearance can be challenging. Yet, realizing that our loving Creator beautifully and wonderfully created us is crucial. God sees us as uniquely perfect, deserving of so many positive and beautiful things. However, we are often our own harshest critics, constantly doubting ourselves and our worth, and lacking self-acceptance.

We must cultivate and maintain an intimate relationship with God to see ourselves the way God sees us. This is what brings acceptance and reassurance to ourselves. Only by knowing God and embracing His unconditional love can we find the courage to see and love ourselves fully, in purity and grace. We can understand our inherent worth and find our identity through this connection.

We don't need to chase after external validation or societal standards to feel accepted. We already are through God.


When we are firmly rooted in Christ, understanding our identity as beloved children of God, it becomes easier to not only look at ourselves with acceptance but encourage us to live out our God-given purpose with passion and peace.  We embrace our imperfections and let go of the need to compare ourselves to others constantly. The endless pursuit of fashion, beauty trends, and the desire to impress strangers lose their power over us. Instead, we can stand confidently, knowing that our true beauty lies in our authentic selves, as God created us.

I want women to look in the mirror and see the most beautiful goddess staring back at them. I want them to see themselves as God sees them – beautiful, cherished, valuable, and worthy. It's not about external attributes like fancy purses or hair extensions; it's about recognizing the inherent beauty that resides within.

We can extend that love and acceptance to others when we see ourselves through God's love. This foundational truth is infectious and provides divine strength to endure life's hardships.  We no longer need to tear each other down, compare ourselves to one another or go into debt just trying to look good. Instead, we can celebrate each individual's diversity and unique beauty. When we grasp the depth of God's love for us, seeing others through a lens of compassion, acceptance, and encouragement becomes natural.

So, let us embrace our true identity and beauty. Let us strive to see ourselves as God sees us – fearfully and wonderfully made, deeply loved, and entirely accepted. It's time to break free from societal expectations and self-doubt. Remember, you are a masterpiece, and your reflection in the mirror should remind you of that truth every day.
