My Mirror

Mirror

Tearing and breaking inside with no sound
Limping, crawling, lying face down
Look into My mirror
If you dare
And let Me show you
what I see there

Stiff-necked and proud – too haughty for Me
Dark hidden agendas and thoughts flowing free
Egocentric and selfish, arrogant and callous
Self-driven, self-serving, unyielding and jealous

Look into My mirror
If you dare
And let Me show you
what I see there

Short-tempered and angry, hard-done by, unrelenting
Sharp tongued and self-righteous, harsh, unrepenting
Cruel and unkind, thoughtless and unfeeling
All this and much more, in your heart I am seeing

Look into My mirror
If you dare
And let Me show you
what I see there

My mirror never lies, there’s no false reflection
Through the Cross, I’ve reached out and don’t want you rejection
My Son’s life for yours, no greater love than this
If you just want Me for ‘things’, then you’ll be asking amiss.

Now, look into My mirror
If you dare
But first let Me show you
what I want to see there

Love, Peace, patience, Self-control and Faithfulness
Kindness, Joy, Goodness and of course, Gentleness
If you dare to look in My mirror this day
Then know through My son, Jesus, you can live My way
I ask for your life, your heart and your soul
To be given up fully, to be given in whole
Nothing witheld from Me, not now, not ever
And to live in Me now, and always, and forever

So,
What will it be?

Are you prepared to look into My mirror this day
And let Me clean out all this rot and decay
Death and destruction were all washed away
Long ago on a hill,
called Calvary.

Tearing and breaking inside with no sound
Limping, crawling, lying face down
Look into My mirror
With Me, you can dare
And let Me help you see
what I see there

    is it written by you? I feel very identified with it.

    Yes, I did write it out of going through much and I still get my reflection shown to me when I need it 🙂 I believe it is the way of all of us have to go as the Lord takes us through the process of sanctification…

    We can pat ourselves very quickly on the back and feel really great about ourselves as the world has a mantra that tells us we are wonderful creatures and our ego and our flesh loves it!

    As humans, we are very strong-willed and need to often be shown very directly where we are at. Only then are we able to understand that we still have a loooong way to go and that the Lord is the One Who brings both the understanding and then the changes about… He always give us a sense of hope. Satan on the other hand, condemns us and we feel we will never be able to lift our head again.

    The Lord’s ‘Mirror’ is a kindness, a mercy and done with such a love that I believe we will only fully comprehend, once we are with Him eternally.
