Mirror mirror on the wall….

Monday Mornings can be difficult for anyone invovled in up front church ministry. Mondays can be hard for anyone for that matter! Remember that Jesus Christ gives you the right to be called a child of God. So then, whatever people said or did not say yesterday, whatever all your yesterdays say, whatever condemning and mocking declarations seem to be finding a persistent voice, whatever looks and words may be waiting for you as you step out into this day and into  a new working/not working week……..look at yourself in the mirror and say, “Good Morning, child of God.”

You have been chosen in eternity, come for, sought for, died for. You have been bought with a price and are the object of the continuing delight of an eternal love. You are wanted, valued, appreciate by your Father. He proudly owns you as His, delights over you, dances over you to the confusion of angels and archangels who cannot quite see whatever it is He sees in you, but ponder it all the same.

The world won’t necessarily reocognise who you really are today, son or ddaughter of God, any more than it recognised The Son. You might meet no one today who will remind you who you really are. So before you leave the house, or before you settle for another day in the house because of disability or illness, or unemploymen,t or age related struggles, or weakness of mind or body of some sort or another, take one more look in that mirror and smile into your own eyes and receive your smile full of the sparkling ife of God looking back at you: “Good Morning, beloved.” Jesus Christ gives you the right to say that.

 

God bless

    Oh Bless you Kenny !!!!
    Am only now realising, that it’s other people’s wrong beliefs about themselves, based on what those closest to them, said to and about them, and did to them, that caused them to react in unkind and even cruel ways at times, towards those who just happened to be there in front of them. So many hurting people. So many unresolved issues.
    Abba Bless you and Morag !!!

    That’s good timing Kenny. Seems to be the morning that the Evil One, the accuser of the brethren, sits’ on the bed head endeavouring to unload all his lies and accusations on to us.

    Dear Rev Kenny and Morag

    You are like bakers who rise very early in the mornings to prepare fresh Heavenly bread for folk who will drop by/call into your Blog Shop at any time of day or night, and the Bread will remain fresh and
    Ino ‘use by’ date. ‘There is always enough’. Thank you for your faithfulness.

    Two Bible references have come to mind today. First that we are ‘accepted in the Beloved’ of Ephesians 1:6 (the verses around this are good too). And second, ‘Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the children of God’, written by the Disciple/Apostle who called himself the beloved of Jesus. Reference 1John 3:1.

    (Sometimes we see through the glass darkly but one day it will be face to face.Paul’s reference).

    God bless you both and the family too.
