What’s On Your Mirror?

I’m already thinking about the message I will give on Bashor Sunday at Evangel Heights United Methodist Church on Sunday, August 24th.

So I posted a request on Facebook – what short phrase or verse do you have (or should you have) on your bathroom mirror so you see it every morning?

Twenty-seven friends have posted so far – from our LOG community and from as far away as California.  I have included them all below – and would be happy to receive more.  There’s great wisdom to be shared.  Thanks, friends!

And you are all welcome to join me at EHUM at 8:45am and 11:00am on Sunday, August 24th.  I will be speaking and leading the worship.  The youth from Bashor Home will be attending the later service.

Ashley wrote: “”beYOUtiful.” Obviously it’s not spelled correctly but it sends a pretty great message. My RA always had it up so I continued it on my bedroom mirror after graduating”

Cara wrote: “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:12-13”

Cindy wrote: “And when he saw the crowds he had compassion on them for they were harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. Matt 9:36. Reminds me why I do what I do and it’s been on my mirror for five years now.”

Mary Lou wrote: “‘Holiness is not perfection according to the human criteria; it is not reserved for a small number of exceptional persons. It is for everyone; it is the Lord who brings us to holiness, when we are willing to collaborate in the salvation of the world for the glory of God, despite our sin & our sometimes rebellious temperament.'”

Sara wrote: “It’s on my phone which I carry with me always: The indwelling Christ shows me the way of peace, and I follow.”

Sarah wrote: “my quote is:  “in particularly rough days when I’m sure I can’t possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that’s pretty good”. I’m planning on painting this on canvas for my home or office. I believe having hope is essential for living and Christ gives me hope.”

Shannon wrote: “I actually keep verses on my iPad because its the first thing I see in the morning (checking email, weather, my calendar etc) and thus all throughout the day. It rotates but right now I have psalm 46:5 “God is within her she will not fall; God will help her at break of day” and then Proverbs 6:24 for my wallpaper “kind words are like honey sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” Recently I’ve had Luke 1:45 “Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” on my fridge too- the 2nd most frequented site in my house. Ha.”
