All a gemstone has to do to shine and release its beauty is to be in the presence of light.
You are a valuable and precious gem.
All you have to do to shine the beauty God’s put within you is live in the Light.
· He is Light.
· Live in Him, and you will shine like the morning sun.
· The closer you are to Him, the more brilliantly He will be able to shine through you.
And… be clean.
There’s nothing that catches light better than a clean gemstone.
It doesn’t matter how perfect or how beautiful, a gem is, if it’s covered in mud.
Likewise, let your life live in the clarity of God’s Word,
and His ways will shine through you
and glorify your Father who’s in heaven.
Shine, baby, shine!
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the LORD will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1-2
