From An Awakened Eye

Have you ever seen a picture of a sunset that took your breath away because of the amazing reflection it cast on the water?  It is a mirror image of what physically exist.  Every detail is just amazing!  I used this pic from national geographic today, but have taken many, many sunset pictures my self, just not good with posting them.
So  I wanted to go back and look up the term reflection and found the following: "the variant spelling reflection is due to influence from correction.1. the act of reflecting or the state of being reflected 2. the property of a propagated wave being thrown back from a surface (such as a mirror)
3. something, such as an image, that is reflected" (per google).
We learn at the young age of several months old what a reflection is and so it is simple to forget that we are made in His image. For us to become like His image we have to want to be "corrected" into His image.  It isn't something that is forced on us or molded when we are not ready. It is a choice to become like Him.
This process is not easy, and that is ok. It is also important to remind yourself that His mercies are new every day and the process of dying to self is a daily. It is when we completely rely on God for the next step that He can begin to make us like Him.
My prayer today is to be transformed by the renewing of my mind through Him and not conformed to this world.  I long to dye to myself that I may live to the fullest in Him.
