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.

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