Growing up as a little girl, I always wanted to be beautiful, and I defined that beauty by looking in the mirror. As I grew older, I came to realize that beauty is really hard to come by in the eyes of the world it includes wearing the right clothes, having beautifully styled hair, and being fashionable.
I was not always talented in those ways, and I started to define beauty as being a perfect as possible, as living right, doing right, serving right. I found out that some standards are impossible to live up too. Indeed, as much as I loved Jesus – I was still flawed, still broken, still in great deed.
So, I was left with the question what standard do I use to define beauty?
What standard do I use to define my worth?
What makes me a worthy woman of God?
It takes More than a Mirror , more than a pretty face, so much more to be beautiful.
