question,..Gotta' think fast!...What would
Jesus say?....HE would say...Ask the Bible,..it has ''ALL'' the Answers!..

1 Corinthians-13:12...''Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror,

I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.''
Genesis-1:27...''GOD created man in HIS own image, in the image of GOD he
created them, male and
female he created them.''
So!..That's it?...Not quite,..As it is stated in Scripture,.We were
created after God's own image,.So,.as we
look into a mirror,.do we see God there?...''How Dare You Compare Yourself
to GOD'' Some will Scream!
Don't get your shorts all bound up there now,..''IMAGE,...image I
say!...Did not Scripture say''Poor Reflection!''

I told the ''Little Fritter'' that GOD See's 'Our Heart',..and Yes, we all

this little one could ''Throw me off my track!''...
''Well Pastor,.Since YOU haven't seen GOD,.Who has?.....''Hmmmm''..Here we

''flying'' through the Bible,..let's see
here...Book of 'Revelation?''...Nope...''Exodus''...Great!..here it
is!...Almost done now I be Praying' as I'm
Exodus : 33-19:23...''I will make my goodness pass before you, I will
announce you to the meaning of my name
Jehovah, the Lord.I show kindness and mercy to anyone I want to. But!..you
may NOT see
the glory of my face, for man may not see me and live.However, stand here
on this rock
beside me. And when my glory goes by, I will put you in the cleft of the
rock and cover you
with my hand until I have passed. Then I will remove my hand and you shall
see my back,
but Not My Face!''
''WOW'' the kid said,.wow!...Mom's here Pastor..Thanks for the
Story!...''Wee Doggies!''..Kid's!...What next!...

Romans-1:19-20...''Because what may be known of GOD is manifest in them,..

they are without
1-Timothy-3:16...''And without controversy great is the mystery of
godliness-GOD was manifested in the flesh,
justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles,
believed on in the world,
received up in glory.''
Proverbs-20:24...''Since the Lord is directing our steps, why try to
understand everything that happens along the way.''
''To know that GOD sees us brings both conviction and comfort.''
