Distorted Reflection

1 Corinthians 13:12
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

While having my morning coffee with God, I noticed my distorted reflection in the coffee cup. I thought: I’m weird looking. Then I was reminded that God made me just the way he wanted me to be. I’m a little distorted right now. My image is not clear but
he’s still forming me.

Like playdough. Most every child I know loves playdough but they don’t want it to stay in the shape of the container. They want to shape it into something. They are not disappointed when they pull it out of the can and it is in a distorted lump because they already have in mind the image they want it to be.

I’m looking forward to the final product when I can see clearly the full image God has in mind.

You never cease to amaze us. You are a special lady.

You are right. God loves us just as we are but he is not willing to leave us that way. He always has something higher and better in mind for us.

PROCLAIM the good news; HEAL the sick and oppressed; BRING JUSTICE
~ Luke 4:16-20

Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing (John 14:12)
