What if we lived as if we really believed the truth of how God sees us? What if we embraced our body shape because we agreed with God that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made"? What if we looked at our abilities and smiled, because we were created in God's image and "He does all things well"? What if we didn't give our value to the mirror, or to the opposite sex, or to our peers... what if we knew before walking into our day that no matter what happens we are still lovely, beautiful, wanted, capable, and valuable, because we are children of the Almighty and He is all of those things? What if when we made a mistake, it was just a mistake, it was not something that determined whether or not we were worthy of acceptance? What if today we chose to believe the truth of God's word?

1 Samuel 16:7 (New King James Version)

7 But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
