Scarred!

Yesterday I listened to the story of a beautiful young woman who at age 17 was horribly burned over 40% of her body in a chemical accident. Her story of courage and redemption so touched my heart! There she stood with scarred body and face, dreams of being a model and actress gone forever. . .  Perhaps the worldly version of the dream containing surface beauty would never be fulfilled, but where does true beauty exist?

This lovely child of God dug down deep into her scarred body and soul to find true worth. The worldly solution to assuage the pain was the attempt to drown it in alcohol; but the enemy’s solution only brought depression. Her friend led her back to the Savior Jesus who always welcomes us in any condition when we come to Him. She gave Him her heart, her soul, her whole being and He gave her supernatural love, courage, and the ability to bring hope to others.

Teary eyed she stood in front of the audience revealing her inner struggles and the distress of her family. She also related as she emerged out of the depression, looking into the mirror she began to see Jesus’ reflection rather than disfigurement. Her worth was huge in the eternal perspective.  This led me to question myself. How important is physical perfection to me? What do others see when they look at me? In a society that worships youth, do they judge me as too 'ancient' to have value?

Who do I see when I look into the mirror? Yesterday I saw all the wrinkles and discolorations of age. For the first time I did not care. I said, “Lord, You will use me as I am. As the moon reflects the light of the sun, I want my countenance to reflect the light of joy I find in You. Let others see You when they regard me. I submit myself to You.”

Who do you see in the mirror? Where do you find your worth? What struggles of self worth are you dealing with today?
