What a promise, huh?? To accomplish the above, there's always a trick, a secret, a specific step to be first taken:
"The best time to apply skin care products is when you are fresh out of a warm shower or bath. Not only is your skin clean, but it is also thoroughly moist and will better absorb anything you apply to it."
Haven’t you read that on instructions to just about any cream, lotion, and skin softener? If you’re like me, I’m going to follow that instruction in order to maximize the effectiveness of that wonder product.
But when it comes to our lives, why is it that others seem to enjoy their days that radiate with joy? And sometimes mine has a dull finish? It’s probably because I hadn’t taken that first "cleanse step" to heart. I still have spots of insecurities, self-doubt or even unjustified anxiety. And it’s that residue that prevents from the Word of God to penetrate and bring that radiance to my life.
Taking a spiritual wash cloth, let the cleaning begin - no more worry, guilt for past sins, stains from my youth, smelly garbage of pessimism, or gloom.
And with a heart free from the above, God’s Word can seep and bring resilience, renewed freshness, and a radiant outlook to your days.
Cosmetics companies know the routine and the tricks to a better skin. But God has the secret for a better life.
"Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart" (2 Timothy 2:22 ).
Once cleansed, moisturizing the soul with righteousness, faith, and love creates a look that glows in the mirror of your soul.
