Mirror Ministries — Your Redeemable Gift

September 30, 2016

by Daphne Delay

As I was praying this morning, I was thanking the Lord for my salvation, for forgiving my sins, and redeeming me. And then I paused and considered the word redeemed.

I know what it means, but I wondered if an unbeliever would know if they heard the word.…

Mirror Ministries — The Behavior of Royalty

September 16, 2016

by Daphne Delay

The Bible has a lot to say about the keys of the Kingdom and our place as kings and priests under Jesus, who is the “King of kings” (Revelation 1:5-6, 1 Timothy 6:15)– or we could say He is the “King” of “Us” (those with delegated authority). And if we pause and think about this, that we’ve been made kings under the King, then wouldn’t that make us royalty?…

Mirror Ministries — Trust God. Love People

September 9, 2016

by Daphne Delay

A minister once said, “You cannot find in scripture where you are to trust people. The Bible only tells us to put our trust in God.” If you’ve never thought about this before, it is a bit surprising at first. But with more meditation, it is not only true, but makes sense.…

Mirror Ministries — Three Hugs A Day

September 2, 2016

by Daphne Delay

Years ago, the Holy Spirit said something funny to me: “Three hugs a day keeps strife away.”

It was in January, around my wedding anniversary. My husband and I always celebrate of course, but it’s also the season of “new resolutions” in life. We had just come off a rough year and I was praying for change.…

by Daphne Delay

When I give you the answer to this question, don’t stop reading!

HOW DO I FORGIVE MYSELF, you ask? The answer is: simply by faith.

I know that’s not what you’re looking for. You want the 1,2,3 steps of punishment and/or discipline. Well, I’m here to tell you the Bible doesn’t lay it out that way.…

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.…

July 21, 2016

by Leo Copeland

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).…
