Mirror Ministries — Where Your Healing Happened

July 28, 2016

by Daphne Delay

Healing comes in all shapes and sizes.

I’m always in awe of the care God puts into the tiniest details. People can receive healing of heart for their brokenness, healing of body for sickness and disease, and healing of mind for trouble and despair.

But one thing we need to be clear on: God didn’t “heal” our spirits.…

Mirror Ministries — Want Results? Stay Stuck Like Glue

July 21, 2016

by Daphne Delay

When we think about something being “permanently fixed,” we’re referring to anything that is fastened, attached, or placed so firm, it’s not readily movable. This could be anything from a palm tree to a cement bunker.

In the same manner, Jesus asked us to be permanently fixed in two things: His Word and His Love.…

I thought an article about the rivers in Texas would be interesting. I thought I might surprise you with the number of rivers and miles of the waterways in our state. Did you know, according to Wikipedia, there are, 3,700 named streams and 13 major rivers accounting for 80,000 miles of waterways in Texas?…

Mirror Ministries — Don’t Ignore

July 7, 2016

by Daphne Delay

Throughout God’s Word, we find natural examples to help us understand spiritual principles. One such example is found in Hebrews, Chapter Six. The Bible says if the earth drinks in the rain and then produces a good crop or healthy plants or trees, then it is blessed. But if the earth drinks in the rain and produces weeds, thorns, and thistles, it is useless and cursed by the landowner (Hebrews 6:7-8).…

Mirror Ministries — You Have A Place In The Winner’s Circle

June 24, 2016

Endurance. Just hearing the word makes you sweat.

Endurance describes a person with the ability or strength to continue or last, especially despite fatigue, stress, or some other adverse condition. It is the picture of bearing pain and hardships. One image that comes to mind is from the reality TV show “Survivor” where all the contestants were required to hold their arms up, seeing who could last the longest.…

Mirror Ministries — Don’t Eat The Brownies

June 17, 2016

by Daphne Delay

The Bible says the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). We could say these are character traits of our God.

In other words, you can be assured that as a good Father, God’s thoughts and actions toward you will always line up to these characteristics.…

Mirror Ministries — Rejected

June 10, 2016

by Daphne Delay

At one time or another, we have all been rejected. It’s a lonely feeling–but we’re not alone.

“Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him… For even His brothers did not believe in Him” (John 6:64, 7:5).

We tend to think Jesus didn’t feel rejection because He was God’s Son, but the Bible says He sympathizes with our weaknesses because He felt our humanness.…

Mirror Ministries — Ultimate Game Changer

June 3, 2016

by Daphne Delay

Jesus was the ultimate game changer.

In His message to the multitude, he repeatedly gave them one train of thought and then countered it with: “But I say to you…”

For example, Jesus said, “You have heard that it was said of those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ BUT I SAY TO YOU that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment…” (Matthew 5:21-22).…
