Sparkle And Shine

Updated on October 10, 2009

Reach Deep inside your self and you will find there is a jewel that shines with a brilliance that is astounding. It is a gem shines through our smiles, through our eyes and through the things that we say. We can cultivate this gem as if it were a living being by accepting Jesus into our lives. The gem was put there by God to house Christ and to showcase him as the loving being that He is. Yet with out Christ in our lives the gem becomes crusted over and dull, for there is no one there to shine. When we reject Christ, chose Satan or do nothing the gem begins to die.

Our heart is the gem I speak of, and we live or die according to our choices, or in some cases our lack of choices, our ambivalence if you will. We can shine and sparkle or be the crusty grouch that no one wants to be around.

Are you ready to sparkle and shine?

      Based on your wonderful insight, may our light continue to shine before others, so that they may see our good works and give glory to our Father in heaven (Mt 5:16). Sparkle on Valerie and be a blessing to others!
