The closer I come to Jesus, the more stark and contrasting the world appears. It is beginning to turn to grays, but the more I am with Him, take council in His word, fellowship with His disciples, pull away from the distractions of this life, it blackens. This life is tremendously grotesque. The only beauty I can truly see of Him is His unmeasureable Nature, companions professing His love, and the unfolding beauty of my own relationship with Him. These are three beautiful consistencies I see in this life.

a thought if you will.

I call them temporary fixings. It's what catches our eyes, we must have and so we get and sometime later we get bored and discard.

But with Him, He is eternity. It takes us forever to notice Him, off again on again we entertain Him, but sometime later we become unexplainably attached to Him and from there something incomprehensible happens within our souls that we must have Him indefinitely.

Again the theme of "make it simple" comes into affect. If His glory is to be my life's narrative, my body will glorify Him, my thoughts will glorify Him, my words will glorify Him, my actions will glorify Him, every ounce of me, my soul, my being will glorify Him. And if I glorify Him to my family, my friends, my colleagues, and to each stranger, to all who talk to me or see me, I will glorify Him to the universe.

It's not complicated; it's simple, however the weight behind glorifying Him is unimaginable. I don't just want to glorify Him with my self, but also with my marriage, with my husband, with my children. I want my family to be a testimony of His all consuming presence in our lives. And of course, the only way that will happen is if I start glorifying Him today, here in this moment.

So I say: Jesus loves me, He is the reason for my being, and I pray that my words turn into actions; be it through a cheerful, smiling attitude, words of His love to a friend. Again Jesus loves me. It's simple. May He through me show the world this simplicity. Amen.
