IN THE MIRROR

When we look in the mirror

What do we actually see?

It’s a reflection of God’s grace

And who He’s created us to be.

When we gaze into the mirror

Are we truly aware?

That we’ve been created so beautifully

When we really look and stare.

The mirror tells a story

Of a life filled with hope;

Of trials and of tragedies

But one that’s learnt to cope.

The mirror will never lie

As it reveals all our scars,

But each one will share a story

Of who we really are.

The mirror is a reflection

Of the miracle that’s exposed,

As all features work in harmony

From our head to our toes.

The mirror is beautiful

And when we’re truly peaceful within,

It radiates a glow and warmth

With the joy that it so brings.

The mirror reveals testimonials

As we gaze deep into our eyes,

As we awaken and are enlightened

And are set free from all our lies.

The mirror reveals God’s glory

When all masks are removed;

An unveiled heart with integrity

That’s been truly changed and moved.

The mirror is true

And will reveal everything,

As a reminder that we cannot hide

But to face what life will bring.

The mirror is our friend

True and honest will always be,

As we reflect upon our lives

So we really are set free.

“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.” 1 Corinthians 13:12

“For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in the mirror, for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.”  James 1:23-24

“As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects man.”  Proverbs 27:19
