While adjusting the rearview mirror on my Prius (yes, I drive a Prius, let the judging begin!;), I was surprised to find a few hairs sticking out of places on my face they did not belong. Where’d they come from?!
I hadn’t noticed them in the bathroom mirror earlier that day. Thank goodness I was on my way home – I would have to take care of them before anymore embarrassing public appearances.
I decided to use the other bathroom with the brighter lights, when I got home. To my astonishment, my face looked like a veritable forest. What?! Ok, this was getting ridiculous. What was I to do?
I realized that the bathroom I usually use doesn’t have enough light to properly show problem areas. But the other bathroom has so much light that it makes things look like problems, that really are not.
The only lighting that showed the truth was the natural light.
So if you look to people to help you with problems in your life, be aware that some may be too kind, not shedding enough light on your issues, while others may be too harsh, blasting you with more light than necessary.
Only God’s light can give you the true picture of yourself, both the areas that need a little fixing and the areas that are just right.
God loves you, is for you, and wants to be your light!
