Holla, good to have you here. In case you missed the last post, we’ve got you covered. Just click here.
Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all.
Scratch that. Let’s start afresh.
on the wall in my hands, who’s the one with attitude that needs to be corrected, the one with guilt that needs forgiveness or the one worries that needs to be offloaded. Lemme hear you say yeah yeah if you fall into any of the categories.
Look into the mirror and what do you see?
A pretty/handsome fellow, wonderfully made and created by the Oga at the top.
“I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord! You even formed every bone in my body when you created me in the secret place, carefully, skillfully shaping me from nothing to something.”
Psalms 139:14-15 TPT
Well, I’m not here to flatter you (oops), because my mood is quite low and that’s cause few moments ago, I made the Father unhappy (can I see your hands in the air if you’ve been there before).
Looking into the mirror after what happened didn’t give me the ‘high‘ of seeing a pretty being. But instead, I felt flogged by the words I read.
“Every Scripture passage is inspired by God. All of them are useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God’s approval.”
2 Timothy 3:16 GW
The mirror of life shows us exactly how God sees us and how we ought to be. That’s why after checking out your looks and noting areas that need to be corrected, you don’t just walk off. You ensure that you don’t make a mess of yourself by adjusting the affected areas. Might be the colours, patterns, make up etc that need the corrections.
That’s the way it is with the word, your true reflection. It says for instance “So train your heart to listen when I speak and open your spirit wide to expand your discernment— then pass it on to your sons and daughters.”
Proverbs 2:2 TPT.
This passage means something needs to be adjusted in the way the reader hears from God. Now, you take time and meditate on ways to hear from God, ways to train your heart to identify the Masters voice. Hmmnn what better way to achieve all that than spending more time with Him.
Look deeply beyond the outward appearance you see in the mirror and into the one that gives life (the Bible) and see the real you, beyond your skin. Do you still see the majestic being or one crying out for help, drenched in regrets, or one seeking a way out of the storm?
As a Believer, when your flaws are highlighted, that shouldn’t be the end. Don’t go about wearing a long face and condemning yourself when the Fathers hand is stretched out hoping you’d hold on to it so he could pull you up.
It’s like having millions deposited in your account without your knowledge and then asking friends to borrow you funds.
He has provided ways to help you, if only you take the first step on looking deeply into your reflection.
I ask, when you look into the mirror, what do you see?
Until next time, keep evolving.
