Matthew 5:13 (MSG) Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.
Beloved, choose the flavor with which you season your world. Will you season it with bitterness? Anger? Envy? Greed? Or will you sow liberally righteousness? Forgiveness? Compassion? Joy?
Beloved, choose to bring My flavor to those around you that they might taste and see that I AM God. Make Me known. For you have the choice of whose kingdom you are expanding. Either you are sowing into My Kingdom or you are making room for darkness. So season, and do so intentionally. Bring My flavor to the world.

Numbers 6:25 (AMP) The Lord… be gracious to you [surrounding you with lovingkindness];
Beloved, I AM kind and good. I AM patient and slow to anger. I surround you with My love and grace. Be like Me. I extend grace where it isn’t warranted, and grant forgiveness where it isn’t earned. Be like Me.
May you so reflect My countenance that looking at your character allows a glimpse of Me. Love well. Be kind. Extend mercy. Walk in the kind of radical faith that causes the atmosphere to shift. Be My vessel to bring heaven into earth. Be like Me. Continue reading “Be Like Me”
Song of Songs 8:6 (TPT) Fasten me upon your heart as a seal of fire forevermore. This living, consuming flame will seal you as my prisoner of love…
Beloved, if you have chosen Me as I have chosen you, know that I will not let you go. My passion for you exceeds your imagination – you cannot fathom the lengths I would go to for you because of the depth of affection I feel for you.
You need not fear My love – though it may seem overwhelming. Embrace the passion that burns holy between us, and allow yourself to truly be transformed by it. For just as the face will glow of one who is newly in love with their earthly beloved, so will you radiate as your countenance reveals your love for Me. Let My love show on your face, embrace it in your heart, and be forever changed. Continue reading “Let My Love Show on Your Face”
Psalms 108:2 (TPT) Arise, my soul, and sing his praises! I will awaken the dawn with my worship, greeting the daybreak with my songs of light.
Beloved, arise and awaken! Greet the day with a heart full of joyous gratitude. Allow your thanksgiving to manifest, and bring forth praise. Release your sound and movement into the atmosphere. Shift the space around you. Welcome My glory in that place.
As you move through your day, carry that praise with you in your heart and reflected on your countenance. May all who encounter you see My presence alive and active in your life. Be a vessel of worship, beloved, and usher in heaven wherever you go.
Psalm 25:8 (VOICE) IMMENSELY good and honorable is the Eternal; that’s why He teaches sinners the way.
Beloved, I love My creation. My heart is that not one would be lost. I do not rejoice in the downfall of those who walk in sin, or congratulate Myself regarding the resultant curses they bring upon their own heads. Would a good parent rejoice in their child’s burns simply because their warnings proved true?
I love My creation. My hand is forever extended in hope that a lost or broken one will reach My way. And when they do, I grab on and refuse to let go. So yes, I AM kind and patient – rich in mercy. And yes, I extend grace and lead you in the paths of righteousness. I AM a good God, and a loving Father. Trust your heart with Me, and reflect My heart in your actions with others because sometimes your face is the only reflection of Me someone may see.
Isaiah 2:5 (VOICE) O house of Jacob— people of the promise —come, come walk with me by the light of the Eternal.
Beloved, fall in love with the light, for you are a child of the day and the darkness will not overcome you. For you shine, beloved, as your countenance reflects My glory. So dwell in My presence, and allow My love to saturate you fully.
Then, beloved, as you walk in that glorious warm glow of one who knows Me and is loved by Me, others will be drawn in. For My love is irresistible, and My light is life to their bones. So shine, beloved, and shine brightly, knowing you are reflecting Me.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (AMP) Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another, just as you are doing.
Beloved, I have wired you to speak life and give hope. Shore up the broken ones around you. Let them be bolstered by your own overflow of faith. Live and walk in the light, for as solar power is charged by the sun, so you are emboldened and your own faith quickened and invigorated by basking in the glory of My presence.
So reflect Me, and do so unashamedly. As you live your life for Me, people cannot help but see and be encouraged as they see my hand at work. So walk in joy. Walk in truth. Be steadfast in hope. And shine, beloved. Shine.
Mark 9:50 (VOICE) Salt is a good thing; but if it has lost its zest, how can it be seasoned again? You should have salt within yourselves and peace with one another.
Beloved, refuse to allow anything to convince you that how you have been made is bad or wrong. Different isn’t bad, it is unique. Strong isn’t bad, for there are moments where strength is essential. Quiet isn’t bad, for there are moments where tenderness is vital.
However I have made you, I assure you, it was with intention and it is good. Remember, beloved, that you are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Trust that to be truth, and refuse to offer anything to the world other than a true representation of the wonderful you that you were created to be.
Romans 5:5 (VOICE) And hope will never fail to satisfy our deepest need because the Holy Spirit that was given to us has flooded our hearts with God’s love.
Beloved, look within yourself and find Me there – My love flooding you and saturating your very being. Each cell and molecule was given life by My Spirit. You are My love made manifest. So allow My love to satisfy you. Allow it to build hope – hope and faith in who I AM and who you are to Me.
Then share that love and hope from your overflow. Just as My love is shed abroad inside your heart, so radiate your love – a reflection of Mine – to the world around you. Shine, beloved. Let your love be a light that warms and gives hope, for it is a reflection and extension of Mine. You are My love made manifest.
1 Thessalonians 5:5 (VOICE) For you are all children of light. You are sons and daughters of the day. We are not created of night, nor are we owned by darkness.
Beloved, I AM the light and I live within you. Where there is light, no darkness can remain. Nor can light disguise itself as darkness, nor should it want to. So shine brightly, beloved. Be an emissary of light – vibrant and alive – and unafraid of changing the landscape around you.
There is nothing to fear from light. As you walk in truth, you know it only brings life. So even when things brought to light feel ugly or broken, simply know that the light has not caused it to be that way, but rather the light has refused to allow it to remain hidden.
For like lancing a wound, sometimes that which is wrong must be completely exposed to begin to bring it to rights. So embrace the truth and the light that brings it. Be not afraid of human reactions, but rather know I AM pleased as you walk as a reflection of Me.
