40 Days of Now: Day 6

(This post is part of a series. If you'd like to know what it's all about, go here.)

Now.  Lord, I saw You today in the face of a friend, shining with the excitement of the vision, the calling You have given her. I could see it all the way across the room. She was lit from within. I know how that feels; it was fun to actually see it today. Thank You for Your Holy Spirit's creativity. You inspire, excite, motivate, encourage, and teach. When You ask us to do something, You give us everything we need to follow through with Your plan. And when we are walking in obedience, full of You, we can't help but be radiant. You, after all, are the light of the world! Without You, I'm a cold, dark stone. ~R

Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
(Psalm 34:5, NLT)

May God be gracious to us and bless us

and make his face shine on us

 so that your ways may be known on earth,

your salvation among all nations.
(Psalm 67:1-2)

You Are the Sun

By Sara Groves and Matt Bronlewee
You are the sun shining down on everyone

Light of the world giving light to everything I see

Beauty so brilliant I can hardly take it in

And everywhere you are is warmth and light

And I am the moon with no light of my own

Still you have made me to shine

And as I glow in this cold dark night

I know I cannot be a light unless I turn my face to you

Shine on me with your light

Without you I'm a cold dark stone

Shine on me I have no light of my own

You are the sun, you are the sun, you are the sun

And I am the moon

  1. Jesus I saw you in a day of rest. A Sunday without obligations, places to be or deadlines to meet. You lived a busy people-filled life, but always found periods away from the crowd. In 6 days you created the heavens and the earth and on the 7th day you rested.
