Get Out There And Share Your Glitter!
But how about “It’s snowing glitter!”
Over the past few weeks we’ve had several inches of snow over and over again, but earlier this week I opened the front door and everything sparkled! It was cold enough that water droplets in the snow were turning into ice before they hit the ground. I’m sure there are some scientific, meteorological terms for it, but in reality, it’s snowing glitter!
I can’t imagine anyone not loving to watch glitter fall out of the sky. No one needs that kind of negativity in their life. Smiles seem more natural a response to shiny, pretty things, especially ones that come unexpectedly from nature. Thank you, Lord, for glitter snow!
Now imagine the smiles that would be spread around if we were that glitter snow. How could we ever be like glitter snow? I’m so glad you asked.
We shine like glitter when we’re kind in a world that is naturally unkind.
We shine like glitter when we share the gospel to a lost and dying world.
We shine like glitter when we put others before ourselves.
We shine like glitter when we listen more than we speak.
We shine like glitter when we offer hope to the hopeless, joy to the joyless and peace to those who don’t even remember what peace feels like.
Our glitter and sparkle come from the Jesus Christ living inside us, so we have it all the time. We don’t have to wait for a frigid, snow-stormy day to offer up our shine. The Spirit’s glitter is available every single day, regardless of the circumstances and situations that surround us. Those are the things that turn our glitter all murky and we refuse to participate in life for a while.
Your glitter plus my glitter plus the glitter our sisters in Christ have, all combined in one giant snowstorm of glitter, can change the world for the cause of Christ. And all we have to do is be what He wants us to be at any given moment, sparkling with all we have just for Him.
Share your glitter, my friends! Let your glitter shine!
