Seam of Gold

We look in the mirror
And we’re so disappointed
We feel like rocks
Coarse and craggy
Our imperfections jutting out
Ungainly and so noticeable
We feel like a worn out mess
Not a sculpted masterpiece

If we could chisel off the parts that annoy us
A part of our appearance
A part of our personality
We would
To become the person we feel we should be

But inside of all of us
Runs a seam of gold
Endless riches deep in our heart
Waiting to be discovered
A unique treasure that no one can replicate
Its value not affected by the outside

So don’t judge yourself by the outside
Don’t rule yourself out because of the way you look
Take hope in God’s love for you
“…For the Lord does not see as man sees;
For man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)
