Shine On!

So, as I was preparing for this past Saturday’s ladies conference, listening  to Cyndi Lauper’s, “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” a verse jumped out at me. (Go ahead and ask… )

“Somebody takes a beautiful girl and hides her away from the rest of the world.  I want to be the one who walks in the sun,, Oh, girls, just want to have fun!”

Now it’s doubtful to some that a song like this is appropriate in church, but I KNEW this was the Lord.  I wish I could show you the faces of these precious ladies from 10 years to 85, dancing, conga style in the sanctuary.  I could just see Him smiling!

But, back to the verse….

It dawned on me that so many of us want to be that beautiful girl, (well, maybe not you guys reading this, but the idea still works!) walking, singing, dancing in the sun, but don’t because of all kinds of things… responsibilities, concerns, social protocol, shame, worries, and feeling we might be judged.  I thought of all the various ways we hide, when we are meant to shine.

In Jn 17:22 Jesus says, “I have given to them the GLORY which You (Father) have given to Me, that they maybe one as We are one.”

That word GLORY in the Greek means God’s infinite, intrinsic worth, approval, splendor, brightness, honor, dignity, and praise.

Would you think about that today?  Without you lifting a finger, you HAVE, right now, His infinite, intrinsic value!!

Bask in it!  Delight in it!  I believe accepting that, receiving it, and walking in it, KNOWING you have it, would please the Father greatly!
