What is REFLECTION? According to Webster, reflection is consideration of some subject matter, idea, or purpose and a thought, idea, or opinion formed or a remark made as a result of meditation.
I think everyone should spend sometime reflecting on the good, the beautiful, the bad and even the ugly in their lives. We should first spend time on GOD, HIS ways and HIS word. We should spend time reflecting on our kids, our parenting, our good habits and our bad habits, our spouses, our relationships, our ministries, our past, our present, our future, our plans, our convictions, our environment (people, things, and circumstances around us), our hobbies, our home, our choices, our perspective, and our free time!
When we reflect; we remember, we think, we ponder, and we wonder. In the wondering, thinking, pondering, and remembering; we can find peace, joy, laughter, a memory, an answer, and maybe even correction. No matter what else the reflection might bring, there is a very good chance that it may bring emotional and spiritual growth!
So as you live out your day-to-day life that GOD was so good to allow you to have, I encourage you to take some time for REFLECTION! Let GOD use these moments to continue HIS amazing work in you!
I have spent time in my life reflecting on many things, and a few of them I decided to blog about, so I am going to link you right HERE to my personal blog, in hopes that something I was reflecting on, might be used of GOD to BLESS you in your day-to-day life with HIM!!!
