James 1:22-24     Hebrews 4:12

 

I discover the more I seek God and get to know Him, I know myself. When I read His Word, in essence I am reading Him. The closer I draw near to Him, the closer He draws near to me and I can hear what He has to say. 

 Looking intently into the Word I see God’s glory and His nature. I can also see my own and here is where the true reflection takes place. God reveals Himself and I see myself next to His Image. His image is flawless, while mine is marred and distorted. Sometimes if I am not careful, I might try to mask myself and hide the blemishes. But God will not allow it. His Word is brutal honesty which at first yields a pang, but later is a healing balm filling every mark and crevice. His unconditional love yields the fruit of beauty that is growing patiently in my heart.

 And one day I will see Him as He is as He opens my eyes to see His loving kindness, mercy, forgiveness and the One Whom He Sent – the perfect representation of His Glory- Jesus Christ.

 

 “For now we see only a 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.

1 Corinthians 13:12

About Doula Faith

I am first and foremost a child of God, "born again" into the Kingdom of God through faith in my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He has called me to be an "Encourager" of faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. I have learned through some painful trials of His unconditional love. The apple of my eye, is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Living Word.
