PPF: Who do I See?

Last year I had a lot of fun 
joining the Ultimate Blog Party and so here I am hopping on!
My name is Patsy and every day I paint every day!
I live in the Philippines and I love it,
that I get to meet so many people
ALL around the world!
There's more about me on this page---

 "When I look in the mirror
who do I see?
Do I really see Jesus
staring at me?"
This is what ran over and over in my mind
while I was painting,
after reading the Scriptures
from the Book of Wisdom, chapter 3:
"Merely to see him is a hardship for us,
because his life is not like that of others,
and different are his ways."

 I definitely do not see Jesus
when I look in the mirror!
I see me with all my flaws!
But all is not lost!
Because in Philippians 1:6, we can be confident
"that He who began a good work in me
will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus."
And that is why it is so important 
to read the Bible.

"...search the scriptures.." Jn.5:39
Why should we read the Bible?
Take it from a non Christian-
"You Christians look after a document 
containing enough dynamite 
to blow all civilization to pieces, 
turn the world upside down and 
bring peace to a battle-torn planet. 
But you treat it as though it is 
nothing more than a piece of literature." 
Mahatma Gandhi
If this "document" can change the world,
what can it do to me?
