Can They See It???

I stood in my husband’s study and tried to decide on what to make for dinner. Mark talked to me and slowly swayed from side to side with a look of almost wonder on his face. His next statement stopped me in my tracks. “Wow! It’s really coming in!!”  I knew at once what he was talking about. Christmas has come and gone along with a decluttering kick and a virus that stuck around for far too long in our home. It just hadn’t been a priority. I then replied, “Are my grey hairs really that shiny?”
 “You are so full of wisdom it is coming out of your head!” I then went straight to my bathroom for a date with L’Oréal Preference.

It’s not a vanity thing. I am deeply, deeply grateful to be turning 38 years old this week. It’s the fact that I don’t love the glistening distractions around my face and $9 is a cheap fix!

What I am fixated on is that as children of light we are to shine! As people who have received the spirit of wisdom and walk in an intimate relationship with the creator of light, we should reflect it. I want the deposits God has placed in me to be evident at a glance. The highest compliment I can receive is a stranger knowing I am a child of God by my love.

I want to challenge you to assess your heart. Allow the Word of God to fan the flames of passion and hope you received with salvation. Let your love shine, let your smile and joy flow freely. Next thing you know someone will look at you with wonder too!!!

2 Corinthians 3:16-18
But the moment one turns to the Lord with an open heart, the veil is lifted and they see.  Now, the “Lord” I’m referring to is the Holy Spirit, and wherever he is Lord, there is freedom.
We can all draw close to him with the veil removed from our faces. And with no veil we all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another. And this glorious transfiguration comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
