Can we truly survive and thrive without a mirror?
Of course we can! But speaking in terms of checking our looks, women especially find it difficult to leave the house without looking in the mirror and I mean really looking.  So many men are guilty too.

How can I leave the house without checking to make sure my hair is well done, with every strand in my desired place? My teeth; no food bits caught in between, my dress neatly fitted and

curves accentuated. Make up check, shoe fitting check, jewellery position check…go on and add yours.
For men it would be ties check, shirt check, jacket check, hair (for those that have any) check…
The mirror does not lie; it is one of the best things that happened to women…and men. It will tell you exactly how you look, and then you can decide to go out that way or make some adjustments. The choice to ignore dishevelled hair,
wrongly done buttons or dirty teeth and go on out is a choice.  The mirror has told you that you are not dressed alright; it would not be wise to walk out the door looking like that.
Now, you can decide to go out like that and earn yourself some sneers or
adjust your looks and get some wows. The choice is all yours.
I remember rushing off to work one day, I looked in the mirror quite alright but decided I was too pressed for time to do anything about my hair, it was rough with little strands flying all over my face, I made a joke of a pony tail out of it but it looked rough none the less. When I got to work that day, almost everyone asked if I was okay and even though I kept a straight face, I was quite uncomfortable.
The same way we look at ourselves to make sure we look alright in the physical; we should also check the state of our souls to ensure that we are properly dressed in our souls, to handle the people and issues for each day.
If we do not care about the look of our souls, then there is a hundred percent guarantee that we would go and get our days messed up. Like speaking the wrong words, going to the wrong places, displaying dangerous anger, and doing things that will end up leaving our day unpleasant, unhappy or unaccomplished.
How to check our souls’ state?
The Bible is a mirror, exposing the state of our hearts and souls to us. It helps us to correct all errors so we can handle properly all our lives’ issues: marriages, relationships, businesses, finances, health, children, infertility, and eternity.

Now you have a choice to look in THAT MIRROR or go on as if it does not matter what state your soul is in. Give it a try, look in.

    Thanks a lot for visiting Amy, and I am thrilled to meet another sister. What would we be without The Lord and His word?

    This is a great post, Ugochi. At first, I didn’t know where you were going with it but I liked your analogy a lot. I too love the Lord and spend time in the Mirror of HIs Word daily. I found you on Blog Frog. Blessings, Amy

    Nice analogy, Ma’am. The truth remains that God in His own way has left us natural examples to help us live the kind of life that He has intended us to live. Through His word, we can be changed and transformed to the image and likeness of His son.
    I can hear a call from the mirror of life today; “Examine Yourself”.
    Thanks for the post.
