Are You Happy With Who Others See In You?

She Looks Just Like . . .

It is said we all have a twin somewhere in the world — a doppelgänger.  It could be a famous person like an actor or actress or simply a person you see on the street.  I am constantly seeing doppelgängers of people I know.  Sometimes my husband will agree with me but other times he looks at me like I have a single eye in the middle of my forehead — you know, like Cyclops.

I experienced this twice recently.  I was watching a show set in Victorian England and the main character bore a resemblance to my niece, at least to what I thought she might look like ten years from now.  In talking with my mother, we agreed that a young cousin was a clone of an actor back in the 1960’s.  

I’m sure I have a twin somewhere.  I can’t think of anyone famous I resemble though.  Perhaps you can look at my picture and think of someone.  

Someone To Aspire To “Look” Like

There is a person who I would very much like to resemble—not so much physically, but in character.  As a Christian, a believer in Jesus Christ, it is my prayer that others would see Jesus in me.  I would want people to observe the way I act, the things I do or don’t do, the way I treat people and see Jesus.

We don’t sing hymns in church very often any more.  Now it’s mainly praise and worship music.  There is an old hymn we used to sing in my church growing up that came to mind as I was contemplating the idea of “looking like Jesus”.  

Let Others See Jesus In You by B.B. McKinney.

The chorus goes like this:

Let others see Jesus in you.

Let others see Jesus in you.

Keep telling the story, be faithful and true.

Let others see Jesus in you.

How about you? Have you ever been told there’s someone out there who looks just like you?  Are you trying to “look like” Jesus? I’d love to hear.

  1. I have often read your blog and look at your pictures and think you look just like a woman who attends the church I used to go to. You really do look a lot like her!! And she is a wonderful Christian woman too. I have been out in stores and more than once, been mistaken for my sister who is just 16 months older than I am. Her classmates from high school will come running up to me calling out her name. When I tell them I have a sister by that name, it always freaks them out. We were often mistaken for twins when we were younger.

  2. Great blog! I was standing in a line to use the restroom at a convenience store last week and a lady kept looking at me. I just smiled. Finally she said, I think I know you! I told her my name and where I was from….she said, “oh, I thought you were a meteorologist on tv”😂😂. Seriously, who I really want to look and act like is my Jesus!

  3. Kim, no surprise to you but I have been mistaken for my cousin, Maralyn, many times. I once told her that I was very thankful that she too is a Christian so I don’t have to worry when people mistake her for me. Ultimately, I always want others to see Jesus in me although unfortunately I fail at that sometimes. On another note…I think your niece reminds me of you as a teenager.

  4. Hey Kim. I think you look like an actress but can’t think of her name… 😳 but she’s beautiful and kind. I’ve been stopped a few times different places and told I look like Robin, Dr. Phil’s wife. Funny , especially with the same name. Anyway, I agree, I want people to see Jesus and no one else.
    Thanks
    Robin
