Mirror … Mirror — The Mirror of God’s Word Enables Us to See Clearly: For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [of reality as [a]in a riddle or enigma], but then [when perfection comes] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly, even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood by God]. 1 Corinthians 13:12 – (AMP)


Encouragement Shared: As we continue to grow in God’s loving wisdom and grace … it is the race of the good fight for the “FAITH” … It is in our humanity that God uses the simple to confound the intelligence of the intelligent.  It is through our daily battles that God lifts us up and empowers us to walk through the battle through Jesus that is the only one that gives us strength.  It is through the lessons in life that have a profound effect in God’s transforming grace in us.  As we look through the mirror of our souls;  The word of God becomes the mirror of our souls.  It is the redemptive refection of the person of Christ we are called be.  It is by the wisdom of the word that reveals and heals us …bring us to a new level of glory and grace.  It is in the face of adversity God’s glory  is apparent through power of His unfailing love flowing in and through us.  It is apparent through how our lives unfold in good times and in the most difficult times.  It reveals the full measure of faith that has been poured in us bringing us from one glory story to another glory story.

It is through our current sufferings that we suffer, that enables us to comfort those who would suffer the very same sufferings …that we might become the hands and feet of Christ.

The God of All Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:3-7

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.

Mirror – Mirror …

I am thankful for what I see …

God’s presence  has strengthened me …to be a woman of faith through the light of Christ leading me through to spiritual victory.  This comes through the power of God’s word that fills me with peace beyond understanding.  Thank you Lord for your love and mercies that never fail… Great is your faithfulness. Beloved, regardless the season you are walking in right now, rest confidently in God’s loving transforming grace, that is at work bringing you to a new level of His “glory”!

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
In Christ Love,
