“You created my inmost being
  You knit me together in my mother’s womb
  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made
  Your works are wonderful, I know that full well”

When you look in the mirror what do you see?

  • Do you, like the psalmist, see someone that is “fearfully and wonderfully made”?
  • Does what you see make you want to praise or cringe?
  • What do you think Jesus meant when he said to love others as we love ourselves?


What is the you of you?


Stop to feel your pulse
Life is running through you
Life is a gift of God


Feel your fingertips
Look at the pattern on them
Each is unique


You are unique
You are made in God’s image
You are loved by the Creator who is proud of you, the created.


Look again at the mirror

  • Ask God to show you the real you,
  • the you without image,
  • the you that God sees
