Cold but sunny out there
When the sunshine hit my face, I took off my gloves. Whatever the temperature was on the official chart, it felt like 50o on hands and face. I was thrilled to be in the cold.
Life is like that, too. When God's light and hope shine on our faces, challenges feel more bearable. Sometimes our struggles even seem to diminish.
On FB, someone asked, "What has made you grow in your spiritual life?" Friends offered all kinds of answers, including accountability, silence, solitude, and spiritual disciplines.
Who needs your attention and sunny disposition today?
*I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
And let us exalt His name together. Psalm 34:1-3 NKJV
*But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Galatians 5:22-26 NIV
