Be challenged to look for sparkly gems–the places where God’s Goodness Shines.
Now I have to admit sometimes it’s easy peasy to find your sparkles (where God’s Goodness shines) but other times…not so much.
“What is your latest sparkle? Where did you see God show up in a big (or little) way… a “Sparkle”?
I asked this once at a small group bible study I hosted. For some of my gals they could list off the top of their head at least 5 or 6 sparkly gems–no problem.
For others in my group the minute I asked the question I heard grumbles and groans–no sparkles here.
If I asked you the question right now about last week, which one are you?
No sparkles here?
Don’t give up. Perhaps you don’t see how God is showing up now but if you take a moment you will!
Having trouble seeing the sparkles? Ask God to show you and search for the little things.
An interesting thing happened that night I asked the question in our group. As other gals began to share their sparkles, the ones in the group that grumbled and groaned that they didn’t have any could now pick out a few sparkly gems of their own.
I think in that moment, they stopped looking at the darkness in the things going on in their life and looked for God in all thing..the little things…and all of sudden their life had a bit more shine.
Take your eyes off the the darkness and focus on the shine.
You are a treasure!
