My Reflection....

Last night at Plugged In Michael Head spoke to the Junior High Students about their reflection. I just happened to be there and The Lord totally spoke to my heart through this message. I'm going to be real...I found myself in the back of the room fighting back the tears. The conversation went something like this...."Are you serious Lord? This is a service for Junior High kids." Little did I know He had something in store for me. 


What does my reflection show? When people see me do they see Christ or do they see Joy? Do I live my life for me and to make my name known or for Christ & His name? My heart is the later of the statement but everyday I find myself falling so short. 

I do. My hearts desire is to make Christ known. To be a reflection of His love. For Him to be a reflection in my face. To be just like Moses when he came down from that mountain. That when people see me they see the love of my precious Savior. That His love would radiate from me & be contagious. That it wouldn't be circumstantial but would be rooted deep in His love & what He's done for me. 

My prayer is that no matter what my reflection would show Christ and His love. Honestly, that's me. That is my heart's desire. That I would live it, reflect it, and show  it to the precious people that He places in my path on a daily basis.

What does your reflection say about you today?

Use Me...

If you pray these words I promise you He will use you & most likely in ways you could never imagine or think. I learned this sweet lesson yesterday as I was reading through my journal from the past year. Little did I know a prayer I had been praying had been answered. In a way I never would have expected or anticipated.

This got me I willing to let Jesus use me no matter what that looks like? To be His hands & feet even if it is for someone else's benefit? I'm going to be honest my answer is yes but sometimes it is so hard to grasp. To grasp that maybe Him using me may not always be for my benefit & might even hurt a little bit. But you know what...that should be OK because it's making me more like Him. It's causing me to be selfless & to show unconditional love to others. It's causing me to show the people in my life Him. The one thing I so desperetly desire to do.

So today I challenge you to let Him use you. No matter what that looks like. Let Him out of the box you have so tightly put Him in & let Him blow your mind with how He can do that! Let Him use you to minsiter & love on the people He has placed in your life today & in ways that you never expected! Let Him use you to be the hands & feet of Jesus to the precious people He places in your life....and along the journey make sure you remember to thank Him for those sweet people...
"Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert."
Isaiah 43:19
