Glory...

I am back! I got back on Sunday afternoon after spending 6 days with Papa God in the "wilderness," so to speak.  When people asked me what Heart Quest is, before I would say it is like a retreat, but now I know it is not a retreat... I would call it more like a "charge"... there was no retreating involved!  It was life changing for me... so much has been lifted off my heart... I am choosing not to pick up any of that "junk" again... I will live in the freedom Christ died to give me.

This is a pic I took on a hike through the woods at Rockwell Lodge where I was last week. It is an ok picture but it reminded me of something I wrote in my journal a few days back and I thought I would share it with you... I have thought a lot about the word, "glory," lately.  The word in itself is a beautiful word to me. When I think of Christ's glory... I picture Him standing with this beautiful light shining from around Him... like when you look at the sun and put your hand up to shade some of the brightness but there are always those beams of light escaping around your hand. It is like Jesus is eclipsing the glorious Light from behind Him.  Christ is standing between me and that Light to protect my human eyes from the glorious light of God.  The old song, "O That Will Be Glory for Me," just came to my mind... the words, "when by His grace I shall look on His face... that will be glory for me."

"But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord."  I Corinthians 3:18

Thanks for stopping to welcome me home.  with a grateFUL HEART, carin
