|Was tiding up in some old papers the other day, found this note i had written from December 2008 and thought i d share it:
\"Mirrow, mirrow on the wall, who is fairest of us all\" ? = a phrase we so often heard in childhood fairytales .....BUT, also something we face through life, \"reflections\" of ourselves.
We spend a lot of time looking at ourselves in the mirrow, and we \"judge\" ourselves from the reflection we see. Actually a pity! God sees us from the INSIDE OUT AND NOT THE OUTSIDE IN.
What if we spent just as much time working on this \"inside\" person as to what we use on the outside? i.e. our spiritual life, letting God do HIS job in us-.....In HIS eyes we are wonderfully and beautifully made! A pastor just said in a meeting that we are not special, we are just people...i dont fully agree......we are ALL very special, cause we are made in HIS image!
The only way we can reflect HIS beauty is to indulge in HIM, letting HIM have HIS way with us, submitting to HIM in all our ways, acknowledge Him and HE shall direct our paths.....
This will often \"soften \"our outward appearance and people will \"notice\" there is a difference! If you dont feel you have this \"difference\" , maybe youre not giving HIM enough of your time...letting HIM show you things, speaking to you etc.....it all takes precious time!
HE can not change us from the inside if we dont \"lay it all down\" , i.e. being honest about all things and confessing. If we hold tightly on to something that we think will give us success, asking for GOD s blessings and then telling HIM what to do, i guess we re on the wrong path, cause JESUS doesnt need or want our dictations. His ways are not our ways and HIS thoughts are not our thoughts...\"HE wants to show THE MIRACULOUS IN HIS POWER\" , and not our power. To be able to do that, we have to \"lay it all down, come to the CROSS and ask HIM to show us HIS WAY, only then, starting at \"rock bottom\" can we be lifted up and start reflecting HIS GLORIOUS PRESENCE in our lives.........REVIVAL starts in each individual soul! -----SHALOM and a BLESSED EASTER!
