A Good Comfort

Settling into my own skin,

God has given me the ability

to smile at the person in the mirror,

loving and accepting exactly who I am.

 

As I look back at who I’ve been

and reflect on how and what I used to see,

my perspective was skewed, dark; I ignored

the signs: the love, the grace, the comfort from the Lamb.

 

Yet once I opened to His heart within,

I saw with Jesus’ eyes, I became free.

His love allowed me to open the door

to view myself and others through His love, His plan.

I see Him now inside my eyes

His beauty shines from my mirror back to me

As does His character; it is His peace I carry, not mine.

I breathe deeply, fully, accepting His unconditional love.
