I feel called to be God’s image bearer.

I believe our lives are to reflect God’s love to others.

God chooses to use us, imperfect human beings, to radiate His love in the world.

We won’t do this perfectly, but we can choose to try.

 

What does your reflection of God look like?

Have you ever asked yourself that question?

 

I have a new way of reflecting God.

My reflection of God has changed because

I have changed.

God is actively transforming me from someone who was constantly

Striving,

Producing and

Performing,

To someone who tastes and accepts God’s peace each day.

Thankful.

Peaceful.

Humbled.

 

For many years,

I started my day in a self-imposed cage

Of impossible expectations.

Today,

I start my day floating in a still pool of water

With Jesus, my Savior.

Thankful.

Peaceful.

Humbled.

 

Better yet…

Now that I have finally tasted and experienced His peace,

I get to share this peace with others!

I won’t do this perfectly,

But it’s finally at my disposal to share!

 

I want people to see God in me

For His glory,

For His good.

I cannot determine how or if they will see His reflection in me

Or what their response will be,

But I can plant seeds of hope and peace

By choosing to reflect God each day.

 

What does your reflection look like?
