“I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys” —Song of Solomon 2:1
As a woman, I often struggle to see myself as anything more than a patch of brambles. It is a curse that afflicts most of us; however much we may desire to see ourselves as beautiful, delicate, strong, confident, blossoming women, a look in the mirror or a peek at social media can make us wither inside and out.
The truth is, however, that what we know trumps what we feel. I know that the truth of the above verse is that my God sees me as a flower more spectacular, beautiful, and deserving of love than I can even imagine for myself.
Knowing this, even when I feel like more like the rose in Beauty in the Beast, losing one more petal every day, or the wilting lilies that go on sale the week after Easter, I allow my King to whisper the reminder of these truths to my soul. I pray the same will be true for you. .
