I love to take sunset pictures. The sky is constantly changing, and if there is a body of water around that can reflect some of the color, the possibilities are almost endless. I took this picture of the sunset on Hilton Head Island this past October- the night before my life changed drastically. The following day, I would be in a bicycle accident and shatter my humerus bone. I had never suffered an injury before and although had been diagnosed with osteoporosis the week before, was not aware that I would be this prone to fractures. The injury, time of healing, and time of recovery changed the way I looked at things and the way I lived my life, and I believe it changed me for the better.
“So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord–who is the Spirit–makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.” 2 Corinthians 3:18.
Those of us who have given our lives to Jesus are blessed immeasurably. The veil, the barrier between God and me, has been removed by Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. His Spirit makes us more and more like Him, as we yield ourselves to His will and His way. And we are changed into His glorious image. Who doesn’t want or need change?
Just like this water reflects the glory of the sunset sky, I want to be a mirror image of Jesus. I don’t want people to see me; I want them to see Him.
