Let Your Light Shine!

Is your reflection clear or are you unable to see past all the cracks? Either way you have to look in the mirror. It's not uncommon to struggle with a distorted image. At times what's seen doesn't match up with what's inside.

I've had my share of struggles with image. I wanted all my cracks to disappear. I thought I needed to be perfect to do anything of significance. 

I felt that imperfections made me unworthy of God's plan. I now realize this is far from truth. In fact, it's these flaws that will be used for His glory!

I've learned to accept my cracks. I've even gone so far as to embrace them. Perfection is no longer the goal. I simply try to do my best every day.

A mirror is simple. It reflects an image. Yet how you view that image changes everything. A simple reflection has power to make or break you. 

Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever-faith, hope, and love-and the greatest of these is love. 
-1 Corinthians 13:12-13 NLT

A mirror reflects what's inside. Words reflect what's in the heart. Your light can still shine bright, even through the cracks.

A vision doesn't rely on a mirror. It reflects its own light. Its light is always on. Nothing can put it out.

A mirror is simple yet reflects many images. Doubt sees flaws and weaknesses. Hope sees blessings and strengths. A simple reflection changes everything. Let yours be clear.

Your reflection should match your vision. If you can see yourself doing it you will! Let what you see in the mirror be a reflection of who God says you are.

Be Inspired!
