Lift up your head and square your shoulders
Stand up tall and do not be ashamed
Though you may be clad in jeans and a pink blouse, a skirt suit and stilettos or a kitchen apron with a 'spilt sauce' stain
In His eyes, you are clothed in fine, white linen
Adorned with Rubies of His Grace
Emeralds of His Righteousness
Sapphires of His Strength
And Pearls of His Beauty.
You are bathed in the Soul-cleansing Blood of the Lamb,
Your face is smoothened with the 'anti-wrinkle' Oil of Joy (no wonder you look so young!)
You may be a size zero, full-figured, petite or athletic
When He formed you, you blew His mind away!
He fearfully and carefully designed you
And when He was done, bursting with pride He said only one word "Wonderful!!!"
In Him you are perfect
Radiating more and more of His Glory as you grow in Him.
Everywhere you go, you leave a hint of your fragrance - a witness of your Saviour.
In your eyes, you might be an insignificant 'one' of six billion others
In His eyes, you are to die for..literally!
Redefine your identity
Wipe your hazy mirror clean
And take another look at yourself.
Can you see what He sees?
Don't settle for less than you are
Celebrate the love that your Father has for you
You are the daughter of The King!
An heir to the wealth of heaven
A child of the Most High God.
And The Almighty rejoices over you.
