I planted it, I watered it and fertilized it, tended and prooned it, encouraged it to grow, asked the Son to bless it and shine down upon it and now the mass of it and the darkness from its shade is blinding me from soaking up the Son.

Little Bits of Heaven

Did you know that we are “little bits of heaven” right here on earth? We fill the Lord with glory and wonder. We as Christians are truly an enigma, a marvel, something to wonder over. We are cracked vessels that allow His glorious light to shine threw. After all the glory of God is man fully alive. I have to admit I haven’t been alive these last few weeks, maybe even months. Come on, let’s dust off our jar, stoke the fire, and let the flame burst into glorious brilliance. Let’s show the world that we are truly “little bits of heaven”, cherished gems that reflect the brilliance and majesty of our Savior.
