It has been over thirteen years since I heard you speak at a women’s conference. At this conference you chose to touch upon a topic that so many women struggle with - identity. At that time, I thought I was the only one.
I still remember the day. The day you asked all of the women, at the conference, to take out their mirror, from their purse, and look into it and write down what they see. I remember thinking, “This lady is crazy!” In summary, the mirror was never my friend. Typically, once we (the mirror and I) finished our morning engagement we parted company until the next day.
So, on this day, my goal was just to make it through the exercise. But little did I know, God would use you, to help me, with a life long struggle.
For the next morning when I woke up and I looked in the mirror, I heard, “I don’t see what you see.” My first thought was, “Good thing!” I then heard words of affirmation spoken and I began to cry. It was on this day, at this women’s conference, that the healing began from my identity crisis that had plagued me most of my life.
I thanked you years ago but I want to thank you again. God used you to change my life significantly and it was on that day I began the journey of seeing myself as God sees me. It was that day I started to love me.
I am still not a fan of selfies but my days of hiding from getting my picture taken have pretty much ended. Keep in mind I said pretty much.
Now, when I reflect on the mirror, what do I see? A selfie I love. That would be me.
Thank You for designing me. I used to think my life was like tapestry only I was inside out. The beautiful parts of me only existed within and the outside was a disheveled mess. Until one day You changed all that. I call that day “The Mirror Experience.” Thank You God for using Elder Genary as a vessel and I pray that You continue to bless her life immensely wherever she may be. In Jesus Name, Amen.
