The Reflection

T h e
R e f l e c t i o n

I looked in the mirror,
To see what I could see.
I examined my reflection,
To see if characterized fitly.
The mirror gave no tall tale,
But set forth truth, perfectly.
The charge was cut and dry.
I missed the mark miserably.
My errors marred my image,
The mirror helped me to see.
Yet, the mirror offered hope,
A rejuvenating opportunity.
A new view stirred my soul.
A change came over me.
No longer bound by my sin,
By grace, through faith I’m free.
I’m walking the way of righteousness,
Spirit led, Word fed, on my way to glory.
All because one day I looked in the mirror,
And to my amazement, the mirror looked in me.

James 1:23-25NLT
For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.

I Owe Jesus
