The Mirror Said

The mirror said: “you’re not pretty enough” and I believed the lie

The mirror said: “you’re not skinny enough” and I believed the lie

The mirror said: “no one likes you” and I believed the lie

The mirror said: “the world would be better off without you” and I believed the lie

For many years I thought myself never pretty enough

For many years I thought myself too fat and flabby to be truly adored

For many years I thought myself not worthy of true love

For many years I thought my life didn’t really matter

I placed no value upon myself and considered my life of no great consequence

Who would truly miss me if I no longer existed?

But how wrong those lies now seem how silly the deception

For a man once saw me as a priceless treasure

He said my life was worth all that He could give and so that’s just what He did

He died upon a lonely cross to show me His great love

He rose again and lives today to prove how much He cares

Each and every day He calls to me and says: ‘beloved come near’

How wrong it was for me to look into a piece of glass

How distorted the image returned to me twisted without love

For a mirror can never truly tell me of my great worth

For my worth is found deep inside a hidden treasure chest

My Saviour alone holds the key

He unlocks the chest

And when I trust Him fully He unpacks each part

He teaches me how my value lies within

for true beauty is found within a heart that’s pure

What the mirror says no longer matters!
