“The troubled surface of a lake will not reflect an image.” L. B. Cowman*
Wondering why you struggle to image Christ at times, Sherri? Your not-right, disturbed soul can never accurately reflect the image of God as long as you remain troubled inside.
The solution isn’t to try harder to image God in your situation. The solution is to submit your troubled situation and soul over to God who takes the stormiest of seas and mellows them out to a smooth-glass finish where His reflection can finally shine through.
The catch? It’s your stormy inside that needs stilling; not somebody else’s.
