If only I was...

If only I was...
more social
smiled more
cried less
could speak publicly
had whiter teeth
could sing
had more time for others
could love bigger
hand longer fingernails
had less scarring on my face
could control my kids better
worked out more
If only I was...
read more
could get a nose job
a boob job
a tummy tuck
had thinner thighs
longer legs
had a different voice
thinner arms
could give birth naturally
didn't get so stressed ou
was more popular 
wasn't taken for granted

If only I would see myself the way God sees me,
I would see this:
 She is more precious than rubies
  Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart
 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness"
  and instead of wishing I was somebody else, I would say this
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,   
I know that full well.

Lord, Your works are wonderful.

God does good work! Now that I've 'entered' the beauty industry as a cosmetology student--I feel like I just want to tell all these people who say that their natural hair color is 'so ugly' or that they need to cover up all their gray hair or that they need to straighten their rebellious curly hair every day...that NO! God does good work when he makes up hair colors. and textures. And gray hair is a crown of wisdom. And stuff like that. I don't think I'm destined to make much money in this industry...

In this gotta be thinner, gotta be prettier, keeping up with the Jones' world, this is a really hard lesson to remember. Thanks for sharing!

very good reminder that we are beautiful in God's eyes. Only in the world's eyes are we not good enough.

if we could just see ourselves the way others see us, let alone how God sees us! I imagine all of our "if only" lists have a lot of similarities... at the top of mine is if only my teeth were straight and nice - ugh, LOL
