LOOKING IN THE MIRROR

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR WHAT DO YOU SEE?

I SEE A FACE THAT GOD CREATED IN HIS IMAGE  STARRING

BACK AT ME

EYES THAT HAVE CRIED SO MANY TEARS OF  PAIN OVER 

THE PAST OF THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE

A NOSE THAT HAS BREATHE FRESH AIR  OF DISPAIR

OVER SOMEONE I LOVED

SOMEONE I KNEW WHO CAME INTO MY

LIFE  AND SHATTERED MY DREAMS

WHEN THEY STOLE MY YOUTH 

OPENING UP A DOOR TO A DEMON CALLED ABUSE

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR WHAT DO I SEE

A FACE THAT GOD CREATED STARRING BACK AT ME 

A MOUTH THAT HAS SPOKEN SO MANY WORDS OF GOOD AND BAD

OF ALL THE THINGS THAT I WISH I SHOULD'VE,

WOULD'VE,  COULD'VE HAD

NOW MY HAIR IS TURNING GREY FROM WISDOM THEY SAY

WRINGLES AND LINES IN MY FACE FROM

THE LOSSES OF YESTERDAY

A HEART SO BROKEN WITH THE CARES OF LIFE

OPENING ANOTHER DOOR TO A DEMON CALLED STRIFE

LOOKING IN THE MIRROR WHAT DO I SEE 

A FACE THAT GOD CREATED IN HIS IMAGE STARRING BACK AT ME

BUT LET ME TELL YOU ONE DAY I HAD AND ENCOUNTER

THAT CHANGED MY LIFE 

I MET A MAN CALLED JESUS CHRIST

WHO CARRIED ALL THE SINS OF THE PAIN I COULD

NO LONGER CARRY WITHIN

THEN HE BROKE GENERATIONAL CURSES OFF MY LIFE

THAT HAD BEEN PASSED DOWN FROM MY MOTHER AND FATHER

TO ME AND NOW I LOOK BACK AND MY CHILDREN'S CHILDREN

ARE FREE

HE REMINDED ME THAT HE HUNG ON A CROSS 

SO THAT MY SOUL WOULD NOT BE LOST

THEN HE FILLED ME WITH HIS PRECIOUS HOLY SPIRIT

AND HE GAVE ME POWER TO DEFEAT THAT ENEMY

ANY MOMENT ANY DAY OF ANY HOUR

SO NOW  WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR I NO LONGER JUST SEE

A FACE THAT GOD CREATED IN HIS IMAGE STARRING BACK AT ME

I KNOW NOW THAT I WAS FEARFULLY

AND WONDERFULLY MADE IN HIS IMAGE

TO BE ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT I WANT TO BE

BECAUSE GOD TOOK THE TIME AND CREATED ME

A MASTERPIECE !!!!!
