Yesterday I was reminded of a old song I use to hear when I was young girl. It was called “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson. As a child I sang the song but never understood what he ment when he said, he was starting with the man in the mirror. Now I get it! People in this world can be cruel, judgmental, and flat out evil. I don’t know about you, but many times I have been over looked, mistreated, and misused. I finally realize that I can’t make the people around me change. I can only change myself in the situation. I started praying a simple prayer, asking Jesus to change ME; Not my husband, not my children, not my boss or co-workers. But change me! Praying that simple prayer has change my prospective and my life! It’s not that I don’t want these people to change, but I notice that when I change everything and everyone around me has got to change!
Verse Of Meditation: James 1:23-25
For once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does
