Recently, I was zipping through an airport on my way to an event where I would be speaking and I stopped in a little news store for some gum. I noticed that by the register were several magazines that had articles about “glowing skin.” Words like “radiant” and “glowing” splashed the covers. Okay girls, let’s be honest, I want my skin to be radiant, don’t you? We’re all about being as beautiful as we can possibly be!
There is one sure way to have a radiant face, it’s to spend time alone with God. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, after spending 40 days and nights with the Lord, “he wasn’t aware that his face had become radiant because he had spoken to the Lord.” (Exodus 34:29 NLV) You see when we spend extended time with God – He changes us and even our faces have a different look. It’s the glow of hope, joy and peace that is only possible after being with the Holy One. This echoes what the Psalmist said in Psalm 34:5; “Those who look to HIm are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.”
So, how’s your face looking this morning? Are you radiant? Are you looking down in shame or up in confidence? There is one sure way to get the glow you want. Start praising God every day for what He’s done in your life! It will transform your face almost immediately! And you won’t have to purchase any expensive skin creams!~ Try it today and let me know how it works!
Stop by tomorrow as we talk about how God designed each of us differently and uniquely!~
Hi, Becky! I have so experienced this…after I came to Christ in 2004, I can’t tell you how many people said they hardly recognized me, both in deed and in how I looked!! Praise God! Almsot 9 years later….loving the Lord more than ever, but definitely slathering on my eye cream (it is Colorado after all?!?!) Haha!!
