Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Have I got it? 'Cause Mirror you've always told me who I am
I'm finding it's not easy to be perfect... So sorry you won't define me. Sorry you don't own me

Who are you to tell me that I'm less than what I should be?

Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen to the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try!

Mirror, I am seeing a new reflection... I'm looking into the eyes of He who made me
And to Him I have beauty beyond compare! I know He defines me.
Who are you tell me that I'm less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen to the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try
You don't define me....You don't define me...You don't define me... You DONT DEFINE ME!!!

Who are you to tell me that I'm less than what I should be
Who are you? Who are you?
I don't need to listen to the list of things I should do
I won't try, no, I won't try!
Mirror by BarlowGirl. Listen to the song here.

Lately Ive been able to get back into the gym a little more regularly.
When I am there working out, I close my eyes and just listen to my music.
I try to focus on the words of uplifting music and not think about the pain or sweat, or how much time I have left on this machine or that.
Its really in these moments where I can freely, without distraction, focus.
Surprisingly, I feel like this is a time when I can actually feel or sense God speaking to me.
A lot of the times its through a song I am listening to.
Songs that Ive often heard over and over, but am now almost like hearing for the first time.

Because they suddenly have new meaning to me.
They suddenly make sense to me, apply to me.
Bring tears to my eyes.

When I heard this song "Mirror", thats what it did. Brought tears to my eyes and down my cheek.
Right in the gym, on the elliptical machine... Gosh how many times have I cried in the gym already! ;)

But I felt a sense of comfort at the same time. 
Like God wanted me to hear this.
I know I have talked a lot about beauty and my insecurities, especially through my weight loss journey.
Its no shock that I am an insecure person. 

Though, yes I have come a long way in my confidence.
But its still a process.
Baby steps.

Im not just going to one day be insecure, and the next day not be.
No matter what anyone says to me, or what my reflection shows me in the mirror.

But listening to this song it almost felt as if God was speaking to me.
"Don't let the world define you. YOU, my child were made in MY perfect image. I don't make mistakes, I certainly didn't make one when I made you."
He knew I needed to hear that message.
Because He knows my heart.
My fears. My insecurities.
I felt so blessed by that powerful, much needed, little message that He comforted me with,
I also felt He wanted me to share that message with you.
Whether its for those of you, like me who have heard the song before, but never really hear the message of it.
Or for those who have never heard the song before at all.
I encourage you to take in this message. 
Go Listen to the song, or just read and re-read over the lyrics.
Let it soak in.
KNOW that God loves you and made you for a purpose, a reason!
You are His child and the apple of his eye.
And beautiful beyond compare, to Him.

I encourage you to smile today.
To love yourself, and show love to others.
Lets be encourager's.
Lets not be the mirror of the world and its unattainable standards!
Lets be a mirror of God, who says "come to me as you are."

Much Love & Hugs,

  3. Hello Beautiful!! It has been a while since I have commented on a post but I read EVERY one w/ a smile!!! You are so pretty!!!! I'm sure just as much on the inside as we all see on the out!! I am going to forward this post to my Lil Sister as a reminder that NO matter how you feel inside, God sees you as we do, just as Lovely as He made you & sees you Himself!! I think it is so sad when someone as beautiful as you & my Sis do not have the confidence that I, (not nearly as adoreable as the 3 of you). I was a pudge, frizzy haired wall flower while growing up. Always hanging w/ the more popular crowd, befriending them w/ my humor so I wouldn't be left out! Out of what, I'm still not sure!! While living in Charleston SC, I was in my mid 30's to mid 40's, started working at the largest boot & western clothing outfit in the area & also started going to the gym, transforming my pudgy quiet caterpiller self into a stunningly shaped, yak-it-up, confidence filled, center of attention Butterfly!!! I had people coming into the boot shop on Thurs-Fri, asking me if the Hubs & I were going to the dance hall that weekend. Girl, I was having the time of my life!!! As far as I was concerned, that pudgy wall flower of my past had NEVER exsisted. To this day, even w/ extra weight I have 'found' along the way, I am STILL a chatterbox!! Confidencfilled to the gills!!! I pray this for YOU!!! My sister is so content w/ her self, quiet as she may be in a crowd, so there isn't much I can do for her BUT to pray that she is happy & comfortable w/in her own skin. But YOU, now there is where I hold out for MORE!!! I so desire for you to be the chatty, outgoing, yak-it-up w/ ANY/EVERY one that you want to be!! It is SO much easier to witness to that stranger in the store, mall, school, etc when you are confident & chatty!! I would so love to meet you in person. I'd be willing to bet you are a GREAT friend to sit & talk to/with over coffee/tea. BTW, off course a bit, just a note to tell you I was able to get my Daughters BFF to accept Jesus & turn her life & trials over to the Lord for Him to lead her to make the RIGHT choices in life! I am SO excited for her & all the fabulous changes she is seeing in her Family & in her personal life!!! More on that if you are interested!!
    Luv ya Sister in Christ!!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your thoughts with me!
