Many times I've looked in the mirror and saw someone I did not like. During my worst season of depression I rarely looked at myself in the mirror, protective hairstyles and chap stick was my go to in an effort to minimize encounters with my reflection. Thinking back, I now realize that my primary goal was to avoid looking into my own eyes because the internal struggle was too great. I felt ugly because inside I felt defeated. Nothing was speaking to me, nothing lifted me, but one day, I came across scriptures that spoke to my spirit.

Psalm 139: 1-14 NIV says, "You have searched me, LORD, and

you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive

my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down;

you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you,

LORD, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you

lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too

lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee

from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make

my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn,

if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me,

your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide

me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not

be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light

to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your

works are wonderful, I know that full well."

We are all God's masterpieces, and for us to feel we are less than is offensive to Him. Yes, we may have some scars and flaws but we are a fearfully and wonderfully made masterpiece.

I will leave you with this quote,

"You don't know how many mistakes are in a masterpiece but

we still call it a masterpiece." - Stevie Mackey
