Tess just went to prom.

Tess wore a silky black and white gown on the night she went to prom.

Tess’ friends fixed her hair and did her nails and put make up on her pretty face to make her prettier before she went to prom.

And you know what?  Tess felt beautiful when she arrived at prom because she knew she looked great.  In fact, she was stunning. 

Grandma bought Shay an Easter dress.

It is a simple blue and cream Easter dress.

When she modeled it for me, with a silver necklace and patent flats, Shay seemed to glow in her Easter dress.

And you know what?  Shay feels beautiful in her Easter dress because she knows it fits her perfectly and makes her look cute.  In fact, the simplicity of the dress makes her eyes sparkle and her curls shine—pure beauty.

When we feel beautiful, we act differently.

When we feel beautiful, we act confidently.

When we feel beautiful, we act beautifully.

I think if we viewed ourselves with God’s eyes, we would act differently.  We would see ourselves as he sees us—stunning, precious, worthy—and it would give us confidence.  I think that if we truly believed God thought we were beautiful, we would be beautiful indeed.

Whose mirror are you using?

Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear:
   Forget your people and your father’s house.
The king is enthralled by your beauty;
   honor him, for he is your lord.

Psalm 45:10-11
