He Has My toes

I sank down into a hot bath tonight with what felt like the weight of the world on my shoulders. 
Some days are just heavier than others.

Thank God for His Word, hot water heaters, and Lavender Chamomile Bath Soak.

As my shoulders sank down on one end, my feet popped up on the other.
And I saw Liam's toes. 

Liam wasn't in the tub with me. 
I just noticed how much Liam's toes resemble mine. 

He has my toes.
And I couldn't help but smile. 
I smiled because I recognized some of myself in Liam.

My mind immediately recalled a phrase I recently read in Beth Moore's Bible study, Breaking Free
She says, "God's glory is the way He makes Himself recognizable."
It's the way He shows us who He is.
And He desires us to reflect his glory- to reflect who He is. 
To resemble Him.

I imagine that God must also smile when He looks down and sees parts of Himself reflected in me. 
The question is: How much of Himself does He see in me? 

I pray in the words of John the Baptist, that God would become greater and I would become less (John 3:30).

 "To them {God's people, the church} God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of GLORY."
Colossians 1:27

 "And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s GLORY, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing GLORY, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit."
2 Corinthians 3:18

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the GLORY of God." 
1 Corinthians 10:31
