How Well Do We Reflect?

These photos by Ray Barlow have just been running around in my mind. It’s about the same as when you hear a song and then for days you hear it and hum the song.

How close are we walking with the Lord Jesus Christ? Are we near and close enough to touch base once in awhile like the photo below?

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:22-25 NKJV)

Are we spending more time in reading, praying, attending church, and having fellowship with other believers? Getting closer to the Lord to where we are starting to reflect Him in our lives.

As in water face reflects face, So a man’s heart reveals the man. (Proverbs 27:19 NKJV)

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. (2 Corinthians 3:18 NKJV)

Lord Bless your day as you consider these verses. I trust we all will strive to be more like Jesus and others can see Him in us.

      • Oh, I’m very jealous! My sister is going in about a week as well, but I won’t get to make a trip there this year. I’ll just have to look at all the pictures that you and she take.

        My heart’s there, but I just could’t get everything else to work for a trip. I really do need to go and spend a couple weeks in order to get all the details I need to finish book # 5 of this series. It’s been a long time in the making and will probably be the last one in the series, but it’s giving me more trouble than the other 4. It requires more in-depth material concerning the Cherokee people living right on the reservation, but I don’t think I can afford to stay there a couple weeks. So I’ll have to work out another plan.

        I appreciate your reading the third book. I hope it blesses you. It’s always so interesting to me to see how the books sell. Some of them that I thought would be the quickest and best sellers are not, and some that I thought would just be ‘run-of-the-mill’ are the most popular. But I think over all — in both print and digital formats — Set Free To Love has sold the most copies by far of all the books I’ve written. Well, my healing book has sold much more than that, but of all the novels, Set Free is the best seller, hands down. And of all the stuff I’ve done, it’s still my sister’s favorite.
