Seeing a reflection in a lake, or in a mirror brings the normal mind to stop for a moment and think. Michael Jackson once sang a song and spoke about “the man in the mirror”. I often wonder just how many actually stop to question the person in that mirror.
In the Bible, Moses had to stop and reflect on just what had gone wrong in his life. As you can see by the passage below, he was just in, sort of a wrong place. Not really what he had been hoping to be at. And maybe even not even having dreamt that this could be.
And the Lord said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither. So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.
As this day come to a close, I can only imagine how many politicians today have spent the day doing the same thing. Asking themselves, what did I do wrong, what could I have done better, how did I lose this?
I’m sure each one of you that might read this, could come up with your own reasons for each of the political candidates that lost in your areas. But I’m more concerned with you that have stopped to read this today.
Have you asked the person in the mirror those same questions, and if so. Have you listened to the answers, and followed the guidance to find peace, and maybe a bit of joy in your life. It seems God will always choose to talk to each of us separately about what we’ve done, what we need to do, and where we should be.
So ask yourself, go ahead. I kinda dare you to stop and reflect on your own life, and see where you fit in to helping, maybe fix our country, your city, or just maybe ……
Your own life!
May the reflection you see be a positive, and great looking one
