Mirror, Mirror, who do I see?
A child of God that is feeling so empty.
Would you mind if I shared my story with you?
A resolution I needed, and I had not a clue.
A lesson was learned in the looking glass that day.
My journey with God had fallen astray.
Shocking, is the best word to explain.
I had lost that joyous feeling, and was not the same.
I saw myself inside, like never before.
Was in need of my soul, to be touched to it’s core.
The solution to this problem, has always been there.
Just overlooked, and was so blindly unaware.
Importance is in studying God’s Holy Book.
Had always faithfully read, every cranny and nook.
Sometimes I understand and other times I don’t.
But giving up on trying, I surely won’t.
Things I learned biblically, have helped me so.
I am so much stronger, than one year ago.
Yet there was something missing, within my soul.
Couldn’t figure it out, I just didn’t know.
I attended church for worship, and would sing and pray.
I always strive to serve God, and in Him always obey.
I give my tithes, even though they are small.
Try to help with needs, every time someone calls.
Volunteering and donating, I do my very best.
To help others, I even ignore much needed rest.
A void was still there, no matter what I did.
Repentance and apologies, still could not rid,
The emptiness I felt, so deeply inside.
At my end, so I just sat down, and I cried.
I felt I had nowhere to go or belong.
Would try to find an answer, in a favorite gospel song.
But still no filling, of the hole inside I had.
My heart was sickened, and I had grown very sad.
While crying one night, I decided to try once more.
Hoping that maybe God, would open that door.
Picking up my Bible, I began to read.
And where He had led me, was about a little seed.
Matthew 17:20, explained it all clearly to me.
To move a great mountain, there is one thing I need.
Faith, even as small as a tiny mustard grain.
Nothing to loose, but all strength of God to gain.
Even my doubt I had carried, would be completely changed.
But I must realize it is ’ME’, that must be rearranged.
This helped me to see, just how wrong I was.
That the Lord and Holy Spirit, were never gone.
It wasn’t God or others, that from me had away faded.
It was my own faith, I had allowed to be jaded.
I then found, in God’s Word, and in Scripture.
Oh boy, another humbling, and lowly picture.
That I, had been laying much blame,
On others, for me not feeling the same.
As it reads in Matthew, the whole chapter of seven.
Listen, because these are words of Jesus from Heaven.
That I must stop looking, in judgment at another,
And using them as my excuse, and my cover.
When I should be looking at myself, looking at me,
To change ‘MY’ attitude, to set my bond free.
So at that moment, I stood right up,
Looked in the mirror, asking what caused my empty cup.
For the first time my eyes, had been opened wide.
Christ Jesus in me, forever will reside.
And others around me, cannot take that away.
No matter how they act, or what they might say.
The answer is found, only in ‘ME’.
And swallowing pride, was the only way to see.
I asked God to please rid this beam from my soul.
Humble me down, help me admit that I am low.
When I feel a hole now begin, I blame no one for this.
Seeing it was within me, I have now found Holy bliss.
So my friend, a release for you is standing right there.
The answer is in ’YOUR’ mirror, will you look, if you dare?
