Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…Clearly that woman looking back at me is NOT the fairest one all…
Nothing is by chance. I believe everything that happens in the earth has a divine appointment. Case – in –point — I decided late last Fall that I wanted to devote the upcoming new year of 2010 to helping women make a positive shift in how they think about their self-image. My intentions were confirmed on New Year’s eve as my pastor delivered the message for the new year – That 2010 would be a year when things would change and be rearranged. He cited 2 Corinthians 3:18 as one of the scripture references to stand on—
18. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.
Who do you see when you look in the mirror?
So many women are unhappy with the reflection that looks back at them from the mirror. So many have hang-ups in regard to their appearance- from the very top of their heads to the soles of their feet! If it’s not weight-centered, its more often than not – all about the hair! LOL! I’m sure many reading this can identify with this statement… as either your own or you know of someone who’s been challenged with these issues.
According to 2 Cor 3:18, daily, we are to be transformed into the glorious image of God. If you are a believer, then you know that the Lord created us in His own image. We were fearfully and wonderfully made. You are His replica, a carbon-copy! What an awesome thought. When Moses went up Mt. Horeb and came down after receiving the Ten Commandments, the people could hardly look upon him for the glory of God shined so brightly upon him. That’s what you SHOULD see when you look in the mirror. That same glory should emanate from you when others look upon you.
As you resolve to do things differently in this new year, CHANGE how you’ve been looking in the mirror. I pray that each morning, as you look upon yourself, that you WILL see His glory shining forth from within. You are indeed the FAIREST one of all. Now go out and SHINE!
