The Mirror’s Reflection


I looked in the mirror,
My face reflected there
Showed lines of fear and worry,
The strain of daily care.
I looked into a quiet pool,
Green branches framed my face.
Snow-white cloud passed overhead,
Some care seemed to erase.

I found myself in a shady nook
My cares confessed to Him.
I felt Him near and knew that He
was looking deep within.
I looked into His loving eyes;
Reflecting back to me
Was one I’d never truly known …
The “Self” He’d helped me be.
I looked into the mirror.
Sweet peace reflected there.
His perfect love had touched my life.
He had erased all care.

Look into His face, my friends.
Let Him into your heart.
Let Him erase all cares.
Feel His loving arms around you.
Live in His peace.

Lives in
His Enormous Heart
Ready to share now

Sending to you
the Love, Joy and Peace
that are mine through Christ.

Have a blessed day!

  5. Encouraging words! Jan, this post shares how the daily presence of the Lord in our lives brings us strength and courage to look into His reflections about our own journey.

    This post encouraged me do a lot of reflecting of my own. I went back and looked at my Sunday Evening blog called Reflections (https://sundayeveningarTtgallery.com/2020/04/10/reflections/) and I realized that what we think we see in the mirror is not always what is there. Beauty on the outside is overreacted (yet part of our DNA) but it’s the beauty from inside that radiates the most. The reflection that counts the most is our love reflected in others.
