Mirrors of Holy Light


Mirrors are everywhere,

Counting scars and lines that don’t belong

On every curve or bump

That doesn’t quite fit.


Zoom in and focus the lens,

And then maybe you’ll get a clearer picture.

Skin that’s too pale or too dark;

Hair that won’t be tamed.


Is that all God sees?

Am I one in a million,

Or the only one who

Never fits the mold?


How does He see me?

With each wave that ripples

Upon my bare skin.

With each ray of light

Dancing in my eyes.


Do I smell like lilies,

Springing to new life?

Does my laughter chime

In the summer breeze?

Of all the things God created–

Somehow He made room for me.


I matter more

Than every grain of sand.

I matter more

Than every blade of grass.

I matter more

Than every star in the night sky.


He calls me beautiful,

Like a budding rose.

He calls me beautiful,

Like a pearl washed new.


Mirrors are everywhere,

But they don’t know the truth.

We are made in His image;

A King that cannot be seen–

Except by the eyes of our Spirits.

We are mirrors

Reflecting Holy Light.

Thanks for reading! Whenever you feel like you aren’t beautiful or worthy, remember who gave you life! God loves you and thinks you are gorgeous. You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) and loved enough for Jesus to die for your sins.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8 NIV).
