New Glasses

Have you ever worn glasses or contacts? I began wearing glasses in the second grade. For some reason, I thought it was cool to wear glasses. Although, I look back and my GIANT blue frames were anything but cool. I had the worst vision (until recently when I had laser eye surgery). When I was in bed, I could not even see the clock beside me. The worst part was when I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and would slam my toe against something. It is awful having blurred vision. No one would want to live life with a blurred vision. But, for some reason, we walk around in this life with a blurred vision when it comes to our bodies and image. We can't see ourselves exactly the way God created us. Sometimes we need to pick up the glasses God has provided for us and put them on so that we can see ourselves clearly.

I have a past of struggling with my body image. Even though I have found freedom in the area of my body, I still have days where I struggle. I have learned that when that happens I must put on the glasses God gave me and see myself through His eyes.

Psalm 139 says that you were skillfully made in awe. He made you extraordinary and astonishing. You are accepted by God. You are significant. Remind yourself of that truth today.

You are loved,
