Green Glass Pond
Green glass pond, with me wait.
Reflect God’s glory through heaven’s gate.
Green glass pond, steady my walk.
Reflect God’s trust as He calls me across to talk.
Green glass pond, I fear I‘ll sink.
Reflect God’s mercy if I look back and blink.
Green glass pond, cleanse my heart,
Reflect God’s forgiveness and level its rampart.
Green glass pond, reflect my heart’s gratitude
back to Him who dwells beyond your northerly latitude.
Green glass pond, with me drift.
Reflect God’s love as He alone does my spirit lift.
Green glass pond, raise mine eyes.
Reflect God’s light through my life. In Him, I gladly abide.
2 Corinthians 3:18 “And all of us, with unveiled faces, seeing the glory of the Lord as though reflected in a mirror, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another, for this comes from the Lord, the Spirit.”
Sometimes it’s hard to be still and trust. We get anxious and think something should have happened by now or how will all of this get done before dinner, right? Sometimes we get caught up in the ripples of life and forget God wants our minds and hearts raised up to Him. When I look in the mirror of my life, I hope, more to often than not, I look like Him. Honestly, I know there are spaces I don’t. So I am thankful for a patient God who steadies me in the process of a changed appearance. What does your mirror reflect today to give Him glory?
