You look in the mirror

And see so unclear With a mind full of lies It’s hard to see yourself right

When you hear all around What’s in and what’s out Your heart starts to pound Wondering, do I fit in now?

You frantically seek approval in their eyes But they can’t see past your crafted disguise That covers every blemish and scar That is written on your fragile heart

But you see, your appearance is a fake If your heart isn’t awake Beating for the One Who sent His only son So you could see the truth That doesn’t lie in what you do

No make-up covers hidden shame No perfect smile can hide your unforgettable pain No words can change your fractured heart No actions define who you are

Only God can show you proof Of what He created out of you How you’re made in complete perfection

Your face doesn’t need any correction Your strength doesn’t always need to strive on, Just let go, and let God be the ONE Who holds your impossible world in place And fills your reality with his grace

Who desires for you to see You’re created exactly as he wanted you to be And who you truly are Lies within His open heart

Your scars you thought you had inside Were healed the day God made you alive That you could finally see again That your unquestionable beauty lives within The very heart you long to share God molded and shaped with precision and care To reflect His very heart In the person that you are

Who you are was made unique So that you wouldn’t feel the desperate need To be someone you’re not and change To finally stand out and not be the same

You are beautiful and so are they But you’re both made in different ways You each have talents to express your heart That reflects God’s gifts in who you are So realize the beauty you have within That God made before your life began So that no one person would be the same But made unique in Jesus’ name

Don’t let your insecurities blind your heart From seeing yourself for who you truly are

Be secure in the God above Who created you carefully in His love

Look to his heart and you’ll see your own It’s far more precious than diamonds, and far more valuable than gold

The answer to your heart lives deep inside Just give God a chance to open your eyes You’ll be awestruck, speechless- with no words to describe Of the undeniable beauty you’ve had all this time

So in those moments your heart begins to feel weak Know that God created you- perfectly.
