Reflections in the Mirror

I have a large mirror hanging in my office at work. 

Every time I pass it,  I check myself out!!

Sometimes making a comment. Other times walking on by the mirror.

I check my appearance  to make sure that I am presentable to others around me.

This past week as I stood looking in the mirror I begin to look a little deeper. Sometimes I am not to happy with the reflection that I see in the mirror.  There are days that my outer appearance may look okay to me and I may say that I pass the test. But, as I look much deeper I have to ask myself—What are the reflections of my heart??

What are my actions and words saying to those around me?

Do I reflect  “Who He is?” Do they see something different in me?  Do I communicate His love and grace?  Do I show forgiveness and mercy.  Do they see Jesus in me?

I am sad to say that sometimes I cannot always answers these questions with a yes.

My hearts desire is for the answers to these questions to be yes.

I want the whole world to know that “He” is the reason that I live and breathe.

I won’t others to see JESUS  in me.

I want to be a reflection of my sweet Jesus!!  How about you?

Several years ago I used to play this song (attached) on my way to work. Just to remind me of who I needed and wanted to be. I think I will put it back in my car and turn it up every morning!!!

Father, I love you. You are so beautiful to me. Forgive me when I have not been a reflection of you to others around me.  I thank you God for your forgiveness and love. I thank you that you show me mercy and grace. Father, thank you that I can start over anew with you. My hearts desire is to be a reflection of you. In Jesus’  name. Amen
