Seeing Yourself in God's Image: Overcoming Anorexia and Bulimia

Thoughts for Today
Similarly, we look into a mirror of life to evaluate how we are doing, and often make changes based on what we see. There are three kinds of mirrors to choose from: other people's opinions, self-judgment, and God's Word.
Today's scripture makes it clear that living to please other people is not the answer. Judging ourselves can lead to two extremes: pride or condemnation. We only see a true image of ourselves when it is reflected from the Word of God. This week we will be exploring some of those reflections.
Consider this ...
Or we can base our self-image on our expectations of ourselves. All too often we don't meet those expectations and experience a sense of failure. All too often we condemn ourselves for past mistakes. All too often we see ourselves as not good enough, not pretty or handsome enough, not smart enough.
Or we can see ourselves as God sees us. How do we know what He sees in us? We find the answers in His Word. Only there will we find truth. Only there will we find the love and acceptance that we seek. Only there do we learn the changes we need to make. Only there do we see a true reflection.
