There is a song by Eddie Ruth Bradford titled “Too Close to the Mirror.” In it she speaks about how she’s too close to herself to see what God sees. Often we are so tied up in our circumstances or storms that we can’t see the wonderful, patient, kind, loving, etc. person that God sees. No matter what we go through there is that spark of beauty that is evident to God. Sometimes we even become blinded by our own actions. We become more and more oblivious to what God sees in us and we can’t understand why God keeps blessing us.
We must keep in mind that God sees the end result. If we can muster up the faith to keep running, we will get to that result. That’s what it’s all about. Hebrews 12: says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” I hope that you will listen to the song and recognize that sometimes we are too close but that never stops God!
Until next time: A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver. Proverbs 25:11
