Reflections in the Mirror

I don’t like looking in the mirror but I need to get ready for work every morning and I need to at least look presentable.

I don’t like my mirror, or rather the reflection I see. Can I get a witness?

Who do you see when you look in the mirror?  Whose image?  Do you like what you see?

or do you, like me, wish for different

Because you feel…

Different or…

Unattractive?

Life has taught me a number of lessons.  Making friends with my mirror, accepting and believing the truth of who I am, are just two of my latest.

Wouldn’t it be nice for a change to remember the truth that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made”;

That the pinnacle of all creation occurred on the sixth day.

So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them…Then God looked over all he made and saw that it wad very good! And evening passed and morning came, marking the sixth day.  Genesis 1:27 &31

Lets make a habit of celebrating the One whose image we bear instead of criticizing the self whose image stares back at us every morning.
