Reflect

July 29, 2016 | 2 Comments

Be a constant reflector of yourself. In college my instructors always made us write reflections on our assignments. I thought it was such a dumb idea and time consuming, not truly seeing the total benefit of this task… until now.
Reflecting has become instrumental at this point in my life. I make myself look back at situations that were successful and some not so great. I examine my claims to fame with glee. Reflecting back on those less than stellar moments, I force myself to acknowledge my wrongs. Yep, “wrongs.” Gosh, so I’m not perfect.
This activity helps me with self-accountability. It’s what I call growing pains. I find myself having to apologize and deal with my ugliness. It is not always the “other person” which causes you to lash out. Maybe there is some hidden anger and resentment in your heart. God wants us to be aware of our shortcomings and make the necessary changes. We are to be a light in a dark world. There is no possible way to be all God has created us to be without dealing with our own truth.
Reflect to become better spiritually and naturally. I promise you will experience growth.

Proverbs 29:19  NIV- As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.

  1. When you say reflect, what are you reflecting on? Is it what has already happened in your life? I believe if I could remember my childhood I’ll find out alot more about who, why, and what, until then I’m still trying to put little pieces of my life back together. I’ve had people tell me to just move on and forget about my childhood, but I believe that part of my life is very important to who I have become and why I do the things that I do….MY THOUGHTS AND QUESTIONS….can someone please help me?

    • I believe everything that happens to us in life should never be taken lightly, especially if it impacted us in some form. I agree our childhood is part of our current identity. And yes, I reflect on the past and present, good and bad. It’s hard to move from something when you’re trying to understand it. Dissect your life from childhood to present in order for you to grow. Take the band aids off to treat the wounds. If you need to, speak to a counselor or therapist to help you navigate through the process. I love you! And I will be praying for you! I have no doubt you will find your truth.
