This morning as I was getting ready for the day shaving, combing my hair, and brushing my teeth I thought about the person I see in the mirror. I saw a person that is the exact reflection of me. I got to thinking about what others see when they see me. Do they see someone who has a desire to honor God, someone who reflects the image of God. I must say as I began to reflect on my life to this point, I saw someone who is less than perfect but also a person that strives to be what God wants me to be. There are so many people and events to thank that have a part in making me the person I am today.
Did you ever sit at the edge of a body of water and see your reflection in the calm waters then have something disturb the water causing your reflection to become distorted? Just like our lives we experience some ripples in our life and then the ripples go away and the water is calm again and we can see our reflection clearly again.
Sometimes we experience ripples in our life but after the ripples are gone the presence of God restores the calmness back into our hearts and minds.
Lately I've been experienceing the ripples but today is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it and not worry about tomorrow and put my hands in his.
