God finds pleasure in taking the ugly blemishes and scars that we have and making them new. When you look in the mirror and don’t like what you see, don’t give up on yourself. Go back to the one who made you and let him see what you see. He loves you no matter what. And when he sees that you have scars from hurt, abuse, loneliness, fear, misunderstandings, alcohol, drugs, and some too shameful for you to say out loud, he will take all of that and make you even more beautiful than you could ever imagine. It’s alright to cry because every tear just moistens the clay and makes the vessel easier for God to work with.
Love yourself enough to admit you have some blemishes and be bold enough to stand up and say, ” Lord this is me, take me as I am.” And when the potter has completed his work in you, you will look in the mirror and smile, knowing that the scars you once saw are no longer visible. All you see is a vessel that was chosen by God and beautiful in his sight.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
