I AM Says, “You Are a Priceless Beauty”.
Ephesians 2:10 (NLT) says, ” For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
You are a masterpiece. A great work of art. A treasure. It is so easy to stand in front of the mirror and find flaws with our weight, hair, or clothes. It is not so easy to stand in front of that same mirror and see yourself as a priceless work of art; perfect in beauty. And yet, the Bible which is God’s written word to us, says you are a masterpiece made by his own hands.
When you go to an art gallery do you stand in front of every masterpiece and pick it apart? Do you find flaws with Mona Lisa’s smile, or the chiseled features of Michelangelo’s David? No! At least most of us don’t. Instead we stand in awe and admire the magnificant work we see in front of us. What if anything stops us from viewing our reflections with the same appreciation? Would you ever dream of calling yourself a masterpiece? Do you see yourself as hand designed by God?
I want to challenge you. The next time you find yourself standing in front of the mirror picking your self apart with your own negative self talk try repeating these simple words: “I am a masterpiece hand made by God. I am unique and beautiful just as I am.” Try seeing youself as the priceless beauty you are.
