Spiritual Reflection (by Valeria G.)

What is one of the things we do on a daily basis or before we leave the house? Well i can think of a few but the one that i almost never forget to do is look in the mirror. Come on, we all do it! Whether you’re brushing your teeth or fixing your hair or shaving your beard or putting on your make-up. You don’t even have to be vain or superficial. Looking in the mirror doesn’t necessarily make you “conceited”. I mean really, how many people can say they have never seen a reflection of themselves? Even mother nature has a reflection in the water! So with that being said, it only makes me wonder.. How many of us see our own spiritual reflection and how often do we check it? The mirror tells us the truth. It doesn’t lie and only shows us what is real. If you have a stain on your shirt the mirror will show you. If you have spinach in between your teeth, the mirror will reflect that as well. So just as we want to make sure that we look presentable, we should have that same desire to look into our spiritual mirror to see if what it shows is presentable to God. Sometimes it takes me a long time to get ready. I hit the snooze button on my alarm because I’m still sleepy, shower, pick out some clothes to wear and then put them on. I then look in the mirror to make sure I like what i see. If i can take a long time just to get ready then i should take time to dedicate to God as well. It is part of my growing relationship with my higher power. Whether it’s through meditation or through prayer or reading the bible or singing songs that praise God or writing in a journal of faith or going to church or whatever it is that makes me have a stronger relationship with God. As long as it makes me like what i see when looking through a spiritual mirror. That way i know my spiritual reflection is presentable to God. So the next time you see yourself in the mirror, ask yourself what does your reflection look like in God’s mirror?
