On Our Hearts: True Beauty

Heavenly Father,

There are times when we just can't help but feel inferior. We look in the mirror and all we can see are our faults. My legs are too short, my nose is too long, there's too much gray in my hair - the list goes on and on. Why must we constantly compare ourselves to others? Forgive us for thinking the worst when the pretty young thing stood behind us at the checkout. We were so busy counting our own flaws that it is no wonder that we looked so unfriendly to her.

Lord, please show each and every one of us the beauty that You see. We need help looking past all the imperfections and seeing how perfect You have made us to be. Let us not compare our bodies to others, but to Your standard. The Bible tells us that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made". Lord, we ask that whenever we look in the mirror we see that true beauty that You have sculpted together with Your mighty hands.


"Charm can be deceiving, and beauty fades away, but a woman who honors the LORD deserves to be praised." Proverbs 31:30
