Reflecting Christ

Photo By Lisa Quinn

A tranquil lake. The water so calm and still it looks like smooth glass and reflects the sky above. Picture perfect beauty like this can take your breath away. The slightest wind would disrupt the calm water and prevent the reflection from appearing. It is only under the condition of peaceful calm without movement where the water can be reflective and display the beauty of the sky above. 

You too can be reflective; especially when you are peaceful and calm. That is when you are most like your Heavenly Father. In fact, it is at that time that you most reflect Jesus Christ! When you are troubled, angry, upset or unsettled you are least like the Lord. However, during those times you can stop, breath, calm yourself and pray. Soon you will feel less anxious and more centered. The Holy Spirit will fill you up with calm and in no time your will be reflecting Christ to those around you. 

Whenever you find yourself being worried, rattled, overwhelmed and unsettled remember the picture of the beautiful, calm, reflective lake. Then ask the Lord to transform you to be just like that and just like him.

He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm." Matthew 8:26
