Mirrors, how challenged are you by the thought your spouse, or someone else could be a mirror for your life? I know that when I hear messages from my mirror, Monique, I can respond and react with defensiveness. This doesn't happen all the time, but occasionally and especially when I have ignored something that needed to be addressed or dealt with in our home.
The shame in me gets triggered and I must acknowledge it and choose to live out of what is true about me in Christ. I am not who I once was, trusting His love for me and my new changed heart gives me the courage to face my mirror and receive her love. You see my mirror, Monique, just wants to love me. I now see her reflections as loving. This is a relationship game changer.
Being in relationship with a loving God, who puts people in my life to meet my needs and offer me their protective love is the greatest gift. It is a gift of freedom that gives me permission to be who He created me to be. The beauty of this is that this gift leads me into my destiny, which involves others who will receive the gift from me one day.
So...mirrors... a gift from God, but first you must receive His love and then you will experience the mirrors He has put in place for your maturity. You can learn more about this in the book, The Cure.
