Mirror Mirror on the Wall   Sunday, March 30, 2003

Ever look in the mirror and not like what you see? In the "labyrinth" that we set up for the teen retreat, there was a station with mirrors. We were encouraged to look, and remember that we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" by God Himself. And guess what - He didn't make any mistakes. 

Several surveys have been taken of teens and most everyone said they would change the way they look. But God made you just the way He wanted to. And guess what else! God loves you just like you are! 

As I reminded my youth group tonight, there is nothing you can do to make God love you any more and there is nothing you can do to make God love you any less. He loves you totally and completely! 

So it doesn't matter if you are tall, short, or even "bald", :) Accept the way God made you and realize that He's bananas about you. And, oh yeah, if you look in the mirror and see "hair", you have something to be thankful for!
