One of my faves is Aveeno skin care products.
I think this is what Moses experienced - not in the appearance of his skin (though maybe, who knows?) - in his spirit....radiant and evened out.
One of the verses I keep by my kitchen sink is from Psalm 143:10
|"Teach me to do your will for you are my God,|
may your good spirit lead me on level ground"
As a woman, I know what it feels like to walk on un-even ground. The up, the d-o-w-n! I want my soul to be evened out, I want to radiate God's love and grace.
I haven't been very disciplined about getting up early for my quiet time lately. I did well for a while, but you know how it is, you stay up late a couple of nights which makes it hard to get up early.....
I know there's no rule about having your devo time first thing in the morning, but I've seen the fruit of getting up and being spiritually grounded for the day and I want that again. And as I think about Moses, and how spending time with the Lord made him radiant, I consider how my family would benefit from a wife and mom that reflects God from the earliest part of the morning - this would have to be an act of God, since I don't wake up "well." I want to be the kind of woman that isn't ruled by her circumstances or mood, but trusts the Spirit to lead me level ground, emotionally speaking.
Tonight I'm setting my coffee pot, laying out my Bible and putting a cozy blanket on my favorite chair, ready for an early(ish) morning visit with my loving God.
When do you have QT?
