God created me a perfect creation, and so in spirit I remain. May the light of my internal perfection cast out any darkness in my mortal self. Thus may I express in the world the love that is in my heart.
May God’s opinion, and not the opinions of others, determine how I see myself. May God’s thoughts, and not my own, determine what is possible for me. May my self-perception rest only on the vision that God holds of me.
Please lift me above the shadows
Of my negative self-perception.
Please deliver me of the chains
That keep me bound to a smaller life.
Please show me the beauty
You have placed in me,
And give me faith that it is there.”
~ Williamson, Marianne
