Mirror Mirror on the Wall or is it a Picture?

        Oh, to be a Reflection of the God who lives in my heart is my true desire. 

 Reflecting his love, grace and mercy to those around me. 

This is my prayer each day that I reflect Christ in a broken and hopeless world.  Yet, as the story goes I find myself getting in the way.   What maybe seen is a picture of Me ! Impatient at times, being judgmental, critical, wanting my own way... focused on what makes "me" happy.
 Ok, so that's a natural carnal part of being "Human".  Born into Sin...

Hey but  I am SAVED by GRACE (thank God).  Yes, I am to be a new creature with old things that have passed away and all things that  have become new.  It each day and throughout the day.... "I" get in the way.


And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Romans 12:2-3

This is my Prayer: (even several times a day I need to be reminded to not be conformed to this world)  "Lord 

The imagery of being a Reflection of Him  (Mirror) is a powerful tool I will seek to remind myself   -  AM I A MIRROR ... my responses and actions reflect Christ? or am I a one dimensional, empty picture of "ME"? 

When I talk and people look at me.... I want them to see CHRIST!  Yes, I'll still be thoughtful about my appearance, hair make-up and dress. Taking care of the temple of God is very very important.  But what people should see is the beauty and reflection of  our precious Savior Jesus.

That's it... That is the message I received this morning from my time with Him.

Ciao and Salute!
