RADIATE

Lately I have been thinking a lot about Heaven and what's in store for each and every one of us. If you think about it, it's truly an incredible thing. To know that the pain and sorrow of world events is only temporary, that grief from losing loved ones will no longer be a battle, to know that someday we will be victorious and humbled in the presence of Christ.

"God has more in store for you than you can even imagine" | Ephesians 3:20

At the same time, I strongly believe that while we are here on this Earth why not choose true joy and happiness? That may sound cliche, but there is so much wisdom to the cliches of life, let's just face it. Loving God comes with a heart's desire for serving people and forming deeper relationships. A passion for making the world a better place even if it's one small step at a time.

The amount of joy. The extent of our happiness. Will be limitless.

I challenge you, yes you reading this, to truly be in the moment. Let's start with this moment right here. Look around you. What do you see? Be grateful. What are you thankful for? Count your blessings. What are your favorite memories of life to date? Listen. What sounds do you hear, is it silent? Acknowledge yourself. How do you portray you?

[In every season. In every moment. Before I bring my need. I will bring my heart. And seek you first.]

So, while Heaven is something to look forward to in unimaginable ways, how do you choose to live out your passions here on Earth? What the things that bring you the most joy? What can you do as an individual that will positively impact another life or multiple people? It's amazing what can happen when you set your heart on something and live it out in hopes of radiating Christ's love.

Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. | Psalm 34:5
