What would your sketch look like?

 As women, I think more so than men, we tend to see ourselves in a much different light than we really are. We are bombarded with images the media puts out that are heavily photo shopped, and told we need to look this way or that, and we must use this product or wear these clothes to have this glamorous  life. So we are critiquing ourselves unmercifully every single day, every time we pass our reflection, every time we see another woman with a cuter hairstyle, or more fashionable outfit. It's madness! We are enough. We are exactly who God made us to be. A smaller nose will not make us a better person because a smaller nose is just the wrapping on a present. People tear through wrappings like it's nobody's business to get to the present inside. And THAT is who you are, your personality, your heart, your quirks as weird as they might seem, THAT is you. Not your clothes, not your face, not even your hair or skin color/type. It's the inside that matters, ladies. The bible has stated this many times:
      
1 Peter 3:3-4 ESV         
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
 
Matthew 6:25-33 ESV         
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. ...
1 Peter 3:1-6 ESV        
Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct. Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious. For this is how the holy women who hoped in God used to adorn themselves, by submitting to their own husbands, ...


When I came across this video from Uplifting, it's originally by Dove, it showed exactly what I'm talking about!  Warning: It's going to pull at your heartstrings!




My question is:  What would your sketch look like?

  1. Definitely makes you think. That commercial always made me cry. I am learning to see myself in God's eyes and not the worlds and so far I like what I see.

  2. I've seen this a few times and it always makes me cry. I would guess my sketch would look like a "plain" woman, nothing beautiful and standing out
