Wouldn’t it be great if my prickly person could see Christ’s light in my face?

“Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭18 MSG)

Goodbye 2016, Welcome 2017!

I don’t know about you, but I’m glad 2016 is over. I am ready to plunge into a new year. In this video, I wanted to share some highlights of last year as well as some goals I have for this new year. I also want to bless you as I pray all of us into 2017. Thanks for being with me on this journey!

Preparing for my bridegroom in heaven blesses my bridegroom on earth.

“Then God will rejoice over you as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭62:5‬b NLT‬‬

Why do I expect to receive a bucketful of grace and mercy from my husband, when I only gave him a thimbleful?

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:37-38‬ ‭NIV‬‬

I don’t even qualify to be my own judge, let alone my prickly person’s.

“Now, I am not at all concerned about being judged by you or by any human standard; I don’t even pass judgement on myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not prove that I am really innocent. The Lord is the one who passes judgement on me. So you should not pass judgement on anyone before the right time comes.” (1 Corinthians‬ ‭4‬:‭3-5‬ GNB)
