Shine

Truly I want my heart to be filled with Your presence and I need the pursuit of You to be what fills my hours. How do I come to that place? I am not certain; but You know. You know everything. 

Change me to be a true replication of Jesus, my precious Savior. I wish to be as beautiful as He is. I wish to shine with the Glory of Father as He does. 

Shine . . . shine . . . shine! That certain something that glows from His eyes must shine from mine.

    Stacey - I am just posting this as a test to see if you automatically receive notifications of comments on all your old posts or if you only peruse the newer ones.

    When I first discovered your blog a few days ago, I stayed up until four AM reading. Your love for our Lord shines through and I have been touched, edified and rejoice along with you.

    I am shocked, SHOCKED that there are virtually no comments on your posts. I see hundreds of comments attached to articles on the most transient and trivial things all over the internet. I guess there is nothing new under the sun - the crowd still screams for Barabbas.

  2. Hi Bob. I get all comments for every post, even old ones. I just have them delayed to I can give permission for them to publish, otherwise I get advertisement spammed.

    I'm so glad you like my blog. There are some posts that people have commented on, but most don't have any. Enjoy reading. I started this 6 or 7 years ago as my way of using my talent for His Kingdom. :)

    "That certain something that glows from His eyes must shine from mine."

    Have you noticed that eye contact is deeper and more spiritually important than is generally realized? Through it we can both receive and transmit.

    God's love can, indeed, shine through our eyes.

    Also, we can look into another's eyes and catch glimpses, not only of their soul, but through their soul into the spirit world beyond.

    Sometimes we see the enemy lurking and prowling, sometimes we see a humble, contrite and receptive soul, sometimes there is a joyful, wordless communion.

  5. Yes, eye contact does much. It's been proven that the eye contact between a parent and baby actually changes the brain chemicals to create a bonding between them. God is pretty amazing in how he made us.
