"Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and Yellow, Black and White.
THEY ARE PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT
Jesus loves the little children of the world."



Oh Lord, I've had a miserable day.
I'm very sad and oh so blue.
I'm feeling ugly and so plain.
Oh Lord, Can you hear me pray?

Oh God, It's been a struggling time.
I've lost my strength and my hope.
I've replaced confidence with defeat.
Oh God, Can you hear my whine?

Oh Lord, It's a real tough down here.
It's either you are in or you are out.
It's hard to know where you belong.
Oh God, Can you dispel all my fear?

Oh God, It's so hard for me to see.
I'm having no vision of good in me.
I'm feeling that I've nothing to give.
Oh Lord, Who am I supposed to be?

My Savior, The Lord of all Creation.
I'm crafted by Your great design.
I'm neither ugly nor plain you see.
My Savior, I'm truly Christ's reflection.

My Father, Your my peace and guiding light.
It's been forgotten along the way.
It's the words to that childhood song.
My Father, "I'M PRECIOUS IN YOUR SIGHT"


There are so many people who struggle with their looks and who they are in this world. In Genesis 1:27a, it says, "So God created man in his own image..." So if we are made in Christ's image, we are truly reflections of Him. God is the most beautiful, important part of my life; and so are we His creation to Him. This gives us a great heritage and declares us creations of God by His great design, A reflection of His Beauty.

Amen! You're right we are a reflection of His beauty. Good job.

Great thoughts here. The older I get the more I know looks or anything else here is not nearly as important as our beautiful Savior. A great reminder, He made us, how can we fuss? Thanks for writing this!

This was beautiful. I love the way you linked it to a children's song. How many times have I sung that song and not thought about the words "Precious in His sight." A great piece with a great message! Well done!
