Tag: reflection of your love

One morning, I looked into the mirror and thought about the reflection of Christ love in me.  It is my utmost desire and passion to be a reflection of Christ  to those around me and  the world.  To see Christ transformed in me to the  fullness of His perfection.  Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear child. Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT.  God created us in His image for His purpose on this earth, that His will be fulfilled in our lives (Genesis 1:27).  

This is a reflection of Christ love,  from me to You Lord ……………………………………. 

When I look in the mirror
Your face is all I see in me
The reflection of Your love
The beauty of Your glory

I look in the mirror
I see You
You in me
How beautiful are You Lord
When You touch my face
The beauty of Your perfection
Your perfection in me

So amazed I am
By Your deep love for me
You love everything about me
The good and the bad

Who can compare to You
Who can match up to Your perfection
Who is greater than You
Who is more powerful than You

The devil sees You and  trembles at Your feet
The enemy hears your voice and they are crushed
All power belongs to You
All glory belongs to You

Now I know who I am in You
Because I have seen You
You in me
The reflection of Your love in me
The image of  Your character in me
Now I can step out in boldness
Because I have You in me

Yesterday I attended a Praise Gathering Event, we praised God with our hands, voice, heart and whole body.  Today during my quiet time with the Lord, I paused for a moment and thought about different reasons to Praise God, Selah.  The key main reason that connected with me was because You are GOD.  Because You are God that is why I am praising You.  You created me in my mother’s womb and knew me before I was born.  You were there from the beginning  and not for one moment did you leave or forsake me.  You love because I am  more precious than rubies, gold or even diamonds.

Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life. Isaiah 43:4 NKJV

Have you taken time out, paused for a moment and thought about the million reasons to praise God.  Or you wake up in the morning, brush your teeth, have a shower, put on your cloths and go to work.  Forgetting that He is the one that woke you up this morning.  But you just get on with life, I mean that’s the norm for you.  So what is your  reason for praising and thanking God? Do you really mean what you say or are they memorised words?  Lets appreciate God for who He is……. Because You are God, what He has done and about to do and praise Him for His mighty works.

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.  12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Psalm 77:11-12 NIV

In the past I waited for situations to get better or to improve to my advantage before I praised God.  But now I realised that there is a secret to praising God, Praise your way through  your breakthrough if you need a breakthrough.   You enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise, rejoice for it’s a new day, Psalm 100:4.  In the midst of it all, I praise God because the devil can’t stand my praise, they tremble at the shouts of praises offered to God.   I praise Him in the storm, rain and even on the dry land.

[Chorus]

And I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm   

Song by Casting Crowns Praise You in the Storm (Song), Life Song (Album)

Because You are God I have a reason to praise You
It does not matter what  circumstance is, the pains, hurts or frustration I face
Whether I am up or down, happy or sad, sorrowful or joyful I will praise You
When I wake up in the morning, I remember it’s because You are God that I am alive
I travel everyday to work and come back home safely
Travel miles away from home and still come back safely
Then I think about Your grace, journey mercies, and protection because You are God
I think about what You have done in the past for me
How you delivered me from bondage now I am completely free because You are God
I think about my present challenges, knowing that You have seen me through
So Lord I thank You and praise You because You are truly God

Comment on what God has done for you because He is God and praise Him for He is good and His mercies endures forever

heart

How great is Your love for me
So great You shed your blood on the cross
How deep is Your love
So deep deeper than the ocean
How wide is Your love
So wide are Your arms to rest in Your comfort
Who can compare to Your love?
I still stand amazed in precious love

My prayer towards you is that : May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,

    18That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
    19[That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!   Ephesians 3:17-19 amp
