I’ve been thinking about sparkle...

TWINKLE, TWINKLE, SHIMMER, SPARKLE
GOD REJOICES OVER ME
ONLY WHEN I REST IN BEING TREASURED
CAN I BE THE LIGHT I LONG TO BE!

At this stage of my life, I find myself with an undeniable desire to “sparkle” as a mature daughter of God. To sparkle means to give off bright, moving points of light. I found a Scriptural basis in Daniel 12:3, “And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above, and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” (ESV)

I know I am a light bearer and I want to be a good one. But how? Here are some practical ideas for all of God’s “sparklers”!
