Glowing Like A Glow Stick

Each morning I have one on One time with God.  I cherish that time.  I leave that time feeling refreshed and blessed.

Then life happens.

Time at the altar at church, I meet with God.  I feel His arms around me and I worship Him.  I leave the altar anointed and renewed.

Then I talk with others.

When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the Testimony in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord.  When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him.  But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him, and he spoke to them.  Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai.
Exodus 34:29-32

Moses radiated from his time with God.  His face was glowing!  He didn't walk off the mountain and lose that glow because of fighting with screaming kids, bad hair days or slow drivers.  He continued to glow from the Father's presence.  When we leave our secret place of quiet time at home and life happens do we lose that radiance?  When we leave the altar and meet with fellow church goers to talk, does the glow of time with Him fade?

I want people to know I have been with God.  I want to radiate like Moses did. When people look into my eyes do they see God?  If I am yelling at the kids or being disrespectful to my husband, they are surely not seeing God.  If I walk away from the altar and engage in the latest church gossip or purposely walk away from His call to serve others, my face does not reflect Him.

We shouldn't leave God in that secret place or at the altar.  We need to take Him with us.  We need to take that feeling of refreshment and blessing with us.  We need to live it out.

Does your face radiate the presence of God today?

  1. I want to radiate His love, too. "Glow like a glowstick!" I love that mental picture.

  2. What a beautiful post. You definitely glow, Jenifer. This is one of those "sticky posts" I'm going to remember forever because of the effectiveness of your message. Thank you, friend!

  3. You're right. I lost that glow today, I ended up crying and in the depths of despair...oh well, if it wasn't for the Lord, I don't know what I would do. He is truly my anchor. Hopefully tomorrow my glow will remain.


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts, I love hearing from you.
