Loving what I see when the mirror looks at me ’cause I
I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And I’m finally happy ’cause
I imagine me
Imagine me, being free, trusting you totally, finally I can
I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I can
-Kirk Franklin, Imagine me
To be honest, I struggled with self-image. I always wondered why I was the dark one in the house, why I was the one who looked the way I did cause to me, everything I saw in the mirror was out of place.
I struggled to believe that I was fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-14) …
What?!! A Christian girl not loving herself … how? *eye roll*
It happens. The thing is that I used to see other girls and compare my looks to theirs and I know that is not very christian of me to do but I’m a girl and I was still figuring myself out to be honest with you.
So for the longest time ever, I despised my looks and I am happy to announce the I love myself and every thing on my body, face and every flaw I have. I am not perfect but I love it all. I finally can imagine myself being beautiful and fully loved by God. I am honestly happy with the way I look even though I have no hips and have gained weight, I love me the way God made me. She is hella fine like sunshine (I would’ve said wine but I am unique).
As humans, we all have insecurities in some way or another but that’s okay because the moment we are saved, God begins to work in our lives and show us what he means when He says we are fearfully and wonderfully made and yes, it’s a long process but it’s worth it.
I am Siphesihle Maseko and I fully believe that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
