Speak into my heart Father, let these words touch someone and not return void.
In Jesus name Amen.
This verse has been on my heart day after day for a week. When I initially read it, it inspired me to do the makeup look you see attached to this story. I was hesitant to post the image because I question myself a lot, asking inwardly, who am I posting this for, who is this “highlighting” (makeup joke intended haha) am I pointing to God, am I honoring Him, or is this to point to me? Point to my skills, gifts, talents, but God has blessed me with those skills. I want to be that girl, who humbly uses those gifts to point to my God. He has favor on my life and I want to share with you, that He has favor on yours too.
Psalm 84: 11
For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.
How beautiful is that verse?! I mean He is my sun AND my shield. So you’re telling me He provides me with heat and He also protects me? Yes, please! I want all of His goodness, I want all of God.
Have you ever noticed if there is a crack in anything at all it makes a way for light to shine into it? That’s where my mind goes when I read that “He is my sun”, because I know I have a lot of nooks and crannies in my life and heart; I want nothing more than for God to bust through those and be the light in my life. The cracks that I have allow Him to shine out of me so brightly for others. I don’t know what your struggle may be at this moment but I challenge you to walk outside and see the sun in a different light. See it as God, see it as Him wanting to bust through those cracks that you wish you didn’t have. Give yourself grace for those cracks, because God already has. Thank goodness for those imperfections because it allows His perfect light to shine in and out of you.
