How many times do you stop to glance into a mirror to check your
Thanks for joining us for Monday’s Message with Abigail Rice and Trench
Classes United. If you were to look in the internal mirror, what do you see?
Today’s message is a great reminder that times of reflection are even more
important, helping us to become all that we are meant to be.
Look in the mirror
What do you see?
I see a girl
staring back at me
A girl with hope
A girl with dreams
A girl that’s been beat
Dragged and torn
A soul that has been worn
In silence she cries out
Lord, where are You?
Why is this happening?
and in silence she sits
Looking at the face in the mirror
Whispering “this isn’t me.
This isn’t who I was called to be.”
But darling, hold o!
It feels strong
The sea roars
and The rain pours
Soon those tears will all be gone
What does that even mean?
Because right now it just feels like pain to me
Am I doing this wrong?
When did my feet slip?
What path is this?
It’s the path God prepared for me
The one my soul needs
To be transformed
Renewed and restored
So weather the storm
Feel the grief
Mourn for the girl you used to be
But darling, don’t believe
The lies you hear constantly
Hissing in your ear
Telling you there is no end
Life will always be like this
But He is near
Sees you as you weep
He holds you in your grief
All you have to do
Is just believe
Believe that you can surrender it all
Lay down those burdens
and then start laying the bricks
Because in this moment
As you sit on the floor
Feeling like you can’t take anymore
What He has in store
Is more than you could ever wish
Or even dream for
So pick up that head
Let Him grab you by the hand
and show you how to stand
On that foundation you’ve built
Through the grief and the guilt
Because you decided to kneel.
“Fear not, for you shall not be ashamed; neither be confounded and depressed, for
you shall not be put to shame. For you shall forget the shame of your youth, and you
shall not [seriously] remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.
For your Maker is your Husband—the Lord of hosts is His name—and the Holy
One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth He is called.
For the Lord has called you like a woman forsaken, grieved in spirit, and
heartsore—even a wife [wooed and won] in youth, when she is [later]
refused and scorned, says your God.
For a brief moment I forsook you, but with great compassion and
mercy I will gather you [to Me] again.
