2nd Corinthians 3:18
We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
Do I sometimes refuse to let go of the veil?
Because the danger of being exposed sounds more risky than the comfort zone.
It looks like the veil covers me
It feels like the veil shields me
I am familiar with the consequences of the veil
I may not like them but I know how to deal with them
I don’t wanna look in the mirror because I’m scared of what I’ll see
I wanna live in the euphoria of the veil
I don’t want to see the raw me
I don’t want to face the insecurities
I really don’t wanna know where I am right now
I’m fine living in the comfort of the veil
Where I feel like nothing is wrong
And when something goes wrong I know how to fix it coz I am way too familiar with this
It’s a self-inflicted veil
A veil that keeps me from progressing
I don’t need to give credit to the devil for stagnation because I’m pretty good at his job
I’m holding onto the veil
What I don’t know is that the mirror shows me who God is
Because that’s really who I am in Him
Christ IN ME
If only I can let go of the veil
And do that thing James talks about in James 1
Look in the mirror and see freedom
Look in the mirror and see love
Look I the mirror and see perfection because that’s who I am in Christ
I just need to let go of the veil
Trust in Christ and let go of the veil because the fear is an illusion keeping me from experiencing God in totality.
Let go of the veil…
