As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the real person.” (Proverbs 27:19 NLT)
In the state of Washington rises Mount Ranier– nearly three miles high– the greatest extinct volcano in America, outside of Alaska. It’s majesty is second to none! Not far away is the picturesque Reflection Lake, made famous in photos for capturing the twin beauty of Mt. Rainier. No matter what the conditions are on the mountain, you can see it clearly reflected upon the pristine waters.
Our life and actions serve as our personal Reflection Lake. If we are happy or sad, content or jealous, it is reflected for the world to see, except for the person themselves. We are usually the last to comprehend how our tone and posture telegraphs to others what’s going on inside. While we think we have our personal issues covered, the world sees our true reflection.
As you get your mind ready for church tomorrow, consider gazing into your own Reflection Lake. What do you see? How do you feel? If you notice that things aren’t just quite right, which we all come to, bring it to God. He waits everyday to make your heart free again! You are loved today!
