What if.....?

I've been thinking.....

What if....the next time I catch a glimpse of my face in the mirror.....
I say something kind to my reflection?

What if....when I see my familiar image, I look for something positive
instead of zero-ing in on the blemish, the wrinkle, the negative?

What if....when I finish brushing my teeth or
washing my face or
fixing my hair.....................what if instead of travelling down
the old familiar
"oh my good gosh, what has happened
to me (sob)?" road

What if.......................I just SMILED instead?
Wouldn't my reflection just SMILE right back at me?

And what if I said to myself---------- "Self, you are beautiful."

I'm just wondering. How would that change my day?
How would that affect my interaction with others?
How much more confident would I be to go out into the
world and BE?

I once heard a wise woman (my pastor's wife Cindy) say
"Don't ever say anything about yourself that God Himself wouldn't agree with."

That has stuck with me for a long time now. I haven't lived that way always (at all).
But ---- I know she was totally on the mark with her words.

So.....what if.....
we ALL said to ourselves ONLY what the LORD says about us.

He thinks we are beautiful.
He says we are fearfully and wonderfully made.
He Himself put us together just exactly as He wanted --- beautifully.

What if.....we believed it? and then ----

What if.....we live like we believe it? and then----

What would change in each of our worlds? and then---

What would change in the great BIG world?????

I sooooo want to find out! Do you?

Think about it ----
