Reflections is the word that has been coming to me. What do we see when we look at our reflection.
Do we see our past and all of our mistakes?
Do we see our present and current situations?
Or, do we see our future and all the plans that God has for us?
Maybe some of you have an assortment of reflections like being in a House of Mirrors, past, present and future…just like some are tall and thin, short and stout, scattered or others are even invisible. We don’t know what we see when we look in a mirror in a House of Mirrors. I can tell you that some of those reflections, I really don’t won’t to see. In fact, I can tell you the only reflection that I do want to see…
The only reflection that I want to see is the Christ that is in me. He has saved me, redeemed me, restored me, healed me, etc. He has put all the pieces of me back together when I was so broken that I could not even see. But He met me in my brokenness and He has restored my vision.
My vision is now fixed on the reflection of the future. Like in my previous posts about Hope..
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
My vision of the future is not marred by the reflections of the past. God is now my present and my future and I know that nothing is impossible with GOD… I can expect the unexpected!
