Is The Mirror A True Reflection of You?

Man in the mirror
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13


When looking in the mirror do you like what you see? Does the looking-glass reflect a person full of joy, a strong self-assured individual capable of conquering all or perhaps you see so called flaws and blemishes? Do you get mad and search the abyss in your mind for change or simply sulk and do nothing? What ever seen I do believe God and the man in the mirror hold the key to change.

At one point in life we have all stared at our reflected images trying to find answers of questions; how this happened, why certain decisions where made and the infamous what’s in the future? We also turn our heads pretending, like Alice in Wonderland, that fantasy is reality. I recall as a child how I would peer into double reflections of mirrors in dressing rooms trying to see beyond the double exposed likeness of me. The illusion of an infinite image was fascinating. It was endless seeming to be everlasting!

The mirror can tell a lot about yourself; it displays character, emotions, feelings and it forces you to examine self. Mirrors allow you to converse with self while brushing your teeth or just being plain silly; make funny faces or cry to release pain. Mirrors are silent partners that permit us to self-diagnose the gray hair, weight, why teeth are crooked, where did those pimples come from, should you pop or attempt to cover them up? Whatever your personal perception; be it negative, positive, vain, superficial, vibrant or withdrawn you where created in the likeness of God which means you are ruler of all creatures and further more a conqueror who can do all things through Christ which strengthens you. However, to achieve and receive one has to first believe. To begin this new dawning it starts with the Man in the Mirror by making up one’s mind to do so.

Mirror, mirror on the wall reveals that you are the best! This animate object can provide truthful answers provided you step back and take a look at yourself in a full length mirror. When dressing in your Sunday’s Best, examine self from head to toe and realize that “When one door of happiness closes, another opens”. [Helen Keller]. In life, we have looked so long in cracked mirrors and at closed doors, that we do not see the obvious clear image. With an understanding that you will look long and hard one can see and feel like a million bucks. The spirit of God is in you providing strength to do all things. It all starts with the man in the mirror so make that change.
