As I was reading through Exodus 34 (when Moses returns the second time from Mt. Sinai with the second set of tablets, his face is all aglow from prolonged time spent in the presence of God. He was shiny, in the actual sense of the word where he radiated to the extent that Aaron and the people of Israel we frightened at first, and Moses took to wearing a veil when he was in their presence.
The analogy is there for us: when we stay present in our communion with God, we should radiate His presence to others. While I am not saying that we will begin to physically glow, we all know at least one person whose Christian walk causes them to be "that" person who always seems radiant with the presence of God.
I want to be that person.
2013 Goals Check:
Read Chronologically through the ESV.
I have completed Genesis and Exodus thus far. Starting on Leviticus today.
2,013 miles in 2013 for Hope House Challenge:
Heading out for a run soon. Today will bump my total over 50 for the year. Yes, I am down on my numbers from the needed average to make it to 1000, but I know I will soon catch up, especially when I change work shifts to one more convenient to running.
