As I look into the mirror, it reveals me,
My heartaches, failures, disappointments, and misery.
There is no way I can hide from whatís really there;
And, because of my amazement, I sometimes stare
At the image that looks back at me
In unbelief of what Iíve come to be.
When I think back on times long ago,
Itís hard to deny how God has changed me so.
There was a time when I would peer at my reflection
As it yearned and longed for love and affection;
And, I would see a miserable unhappy soul
Whose heart was crushed and had waxed cold.
The wrinkles of sorrow were hard to avoid
And by the freckles of pain, I was truly annoyed.
The frowns of worry wouldnít allow me to smile
And my clothing of self-pity were way out of style.
There was no jewelry of grace
Only pimples and blemishes covering my face.
One day, God decided to shine a light upon me,
And, now, Iím pleased with what I see
When I stare into my mirror of life
Because it doesnít show misery and strife.
When I stare at the image that looks back at me,
Iím pleased at what Godís grace has made it to be.
The wrinkles seemed to have disappeared;
And, peace of mind cut away that unsightly beard.
I now have a smile that brightens up the room
Because my teeth have been cleansed of troubleís gloom.
I no longer slump over with doubt when I stand;
But, I stand strong and tall with the support of Godís hand.
I now wear the robe of faith, self-worth and self-esteem;
And, my skin shines from joyís cream.
When I look into my mirror of life today,
I rejoice because God took that image of sorrow away.
