Reflections in the Mirror
Just as water mirrors your face, so your face mirrors your heart. Prov. 27:19 msg.
I just got back from Home Depot, love that place, where I had to get some bug spray which is a necessity in Florida. I also got another solar powered light for my courtyard. The glow from the lights are so soft and the best part it takes no electricity to run them!
A solar powered light sits around all day soaking up the sun. When the sun starts to disappear the little lamps start to glow. All the energy they stored up from the sun pours out to light
my pathway, and my pond. My whole courtyard is bathed in a soft glowie inviting light.
In John 8:12 Jesus said, "I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (niv)
Luke 11:36 tells us, "Therefore if your whole body is full of Light and no part of it dark it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you." (niv)
Our assignment, should we accept it, is to soak up the Light from the Son through Bible Study, Prayer, Attending Church, whatever means necessary .
Then when the darkeness starts to settle in around us the Light (Jesus) we've absorbed into us will start to glow. Jesus will shine from us and we will then reflect Him for others to see. They will be so drawn to the Light they will want to become a Light also.
We are given our "Solar Power" as a gift, we did nothing to deserve it, but it's ours for the taking. Once we've received the Light (Jesus), God expects us to pass it along to others, not hide it and keep it for our selves.
The Light has to keep shinning and the more lights willing to shine the less darkness in the world.
Let the Light in you shine for others to see today and everyday!

Everyday we have the opportunity to decide what we will allow into our heart. What we read, what we watch, who we talk with all contribute to the contents of our heart. That content inturn is reflected in not only our faces as the scripture says, but in how we treat other, and in our words.
Mat.12:24 says "For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks." NIV
What is in my heart that is being reflected to others? When you look at me do you see fear, past abuse, anger, unforgiveness or do you see a heart that has been broken and lovingly restored by it's Maker?
It's our Father's desire to restore our heart, to make it complete, nothing missing, nothing broken. Through His Word we begin to see His love and desires for us. Through His Word we begin to see the portrait He's painted of each one of His precious children. When He looks at us He sees a reflection of Himself. Is that what others see?
When I speak, what do my words say about what I've allowed to infiltrate my heart? Are they gentle, uplifting, kind, encouraging reflecting my Father in me? Or have I harbored anger, bitterness, unforgiveness and from that my words are formed and go out to affect others? Do my words bring life or death to others and to myself?
As children of the King of Kings we must always aspire to reflect our Father. By searching for Him diligently we will find Him. By allowing His words to fill our hearts we will reflect His beauty. When we allow Him to completely fill our hearts there will be no room for the things that cause our speach to be a death sentence to ourselves or others. Our words will be full of life and healing because they will be His words not ours.
A mirror only reflects what's in front of it!
What are you doing to become a reflection of Father God? Is it an everyday exercise or an occasional walk on the treadmill? Is seeking Him your first priority, or have other things gotten in your way, like life for instance?
Lord, help us become more desperate for You. And in seeking You, we become a mirrored image of You, our loving Father.
