The Person I See in the Mirror

Love this poem!
The Looking
In the mirror one day,
I saw a self.
Body.
Mind.
Emotion.

I took a closer look and peered into my soul.
The things I saw?
Brokenness.
Fear.
Envy.
Lust.
Insecurity.

One more time I looked into the mirror.
This time I saw a redeemed self
This time I saw a beautiful self.
This time I saw, in the background, Jesus.

By his grace he redeemed me.
Now he is making me into
the self I want to be,
the self that I really am.
