A mirror is a very important object in a woman’s life. The completion to our look, is a last view in the mirror. I think the only women who don’t rely on mirrors are those who made a decision (eg: spiritual – nuns) not to. Some men are also great lovers of the mirror. I call them “the pretty boy floyds” (lol). G-d spoke to me using one of my beloved (yes I love the mirror) and boy did it hit me hard. It was the best revelation I received since my rekindled walk with the Lord and oh how I was excited to share.
The week of June 10th – 16th, 2012 I was privileged to get a “random holiday” from the office. Initially my plan was to relax; watch movies, sleep and repeat this routine until it was time to organize for the next days work. However G-d had another plan. He decided to take me to “church”. While laying on my bed, I began to converse with the Lord, asking him what exactly he required of me. “G-d what do you what from me? What must I do for you?” The answer I got almost instantly was one word, “Reflection”. A bit confused, I started pondering on the answer. He continued to speak and ministered to my spirit about mirrors. By the end of our session, I was brought to tears, got up, sat in a corner of the room and cried out to the Lord to be just as he’d shown me. In the word it’s written that we are all blessed with particular gifts and talents which we use to execute work for the Kingdom. However, what the Lord revealed had nothing to do with these attributes. Rather what he wants to see is his reflection when he looks at us.
Revelation: Mirrors are usually used to see reflections. Mirrors which are not used and or never cleaned (purified) eventually gets dirty and almost opaque. Seeing things in them becomes impossible and they are no longer good for use
However a clean mirror usually gives a clear image of what is standing before it. When you look into a mirror, you see yourself inside the mirror looking back at you. When I look at you, I must see myself inside of you looking back at me. I must see my glory hitting me back in my face.That will please my heart. That is mainly what I require from you.
I was totally amazed by this revelation. All my years of using mirrors, it never showed to be so significant as then. G-d wants us to be clean mirrors here on earth, reflecting his glory so that others may see. It doesn’t matter your portfolio; singer, musician or even janitor, what you do should reflect G-d. It makes no sense singing out loud and proud or dancing the best routine and not reflecting G-d. His heart will not be satisfied but rather when he looks at us and sees himself. Maybe you are battling with your purpose. You long to know what G-d requires of you. I have no definite answer but what I can say is, just be a reflection of him. How do you do that? By spending time with him and studying his ways. Who knows! Maybe in doing so, the answer will come. It’s sometimes easier said than done, so what we should do is live it day-to-day. Each day ask him to examine and continue to cleanse you, so that when he looks down at you, he can see his reflection. Strive to live the “Mirror Effect” life.
Reminder: You are the head and not the tail. Above and not under.
