What mirror do you use?

It's been a while since my last blog, let's hope that I still know how to do this. As I write this, I am actually in Louisville for the Together for The Gospel conference. It has been a tremendous time thus far. I have been blessed to sit under the teaching of some of today's most brilliant minds and eloquent and powerful communicators of the Gospel.

This morning as I was getting ready, God gripped my heart with something. As I was getting dressed, I was a little frustrated by the lack of sleep and by the fact that I was disappointed with the mirrors in the room. None of the ones offered in my room seem to give me the proper lighting or angle that I wanted. Please catch this, the mirror was not offering to me, what I wanted, but it did give me the image of what stood in front of it. So as I grew a little frustrated, that's when my spirit just gave me one those nudges...and got me thinking, that's what I do in my daily spiritual walk.

I tend to use the wrong mirrors or question what the real mirror is showing me. You see we all fall into this trap. We tend to define ourselves, measure our worth, our value, our impact or even our goodness and badness by using mirrors and standards that God never intended us to use.
