Shoes, Shopping & Love…
YOU ARE ENOUGH to be LOVED just the way you are.
I was reminded of this fact yesterday while shoe shopping. I tried on a pair of pumps that were cute and proceeded to look for a mirror so I could see if they complimented my legs. As I glanced down at the floor mirror I noticed that my legs looked extraordinarily good! I mean real good, lol! I workout 5-6 times a week so I expect my legs to be admirable but I couldn’t help but to notice how lean and elongated they appeared while wearing those heels.
I soon figured out that the shoe store had altered (used long mirrors and tilted them) the mirrors in order to enhance the appearance of its shoppers and thereby increase its sales.
When I woke up today, I reflected on my experience and I thought about God’s love. You see, whereas man accepts us after we’ve made improvements and enhancements, God accepts us just the way we are. Moreover, God loves us just the way we are. We don’t have to change our looks or even change our hearts in order to be loved by Him. He loves us just the way we are and through His love we are transformed from the inside out.
As women, this is a very important lesson to remember and keep in mind. It’s especially important when dating. If you ever find yourself feeling the need to change your appearance in order to be loved or accepted by someone, take a moment to check your heart and remember that you are worthy of love just the way you are.
If you’re enough to be loved by the most amazing man in the world (Jesus), surely you are more than enough for anyone else.
Allow yourself to be loved by God each day of your life. Receive His love and shine in it every moment of your life.
