cb devo mar 13“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.” Isaiah 59:2 (NIV)

 Hiding away on the edge of the curve shaded by the grove of trees on the bank – one mound of ice, cold snow.  Remnants of a harsh winter that’s still lingering. The sun was beaming, the temps were rising  and my window was down.  But that isolated spot on the curve perfectly avoided the warm March sunlight.  Wonder if we have any places that are untouched by the son’s light?  Places we like too much to let Jesus in.  Places we cherish because they require change.  Places we’ve kept hidden under cover, icy, cold yet lingering too long. Eventually that mound of snow will melt; but before it does it will lose its sparkle.  Dust, dirt, anything the wind blows its way will land on its surface – leaving yucky behind. There’s nothing more ugly than a mound of dirty snow.  There’s nothing more ugly than a life that turns yucky because it has lost its sparkle.  When we allow Jesus to touch our vulnerable spots shaded by the grove of pretense, we find that His light melts away the harshness.  And the watered down puddle that remains nourishes the soil underneath.  Now that my friend is amazing.  We need some nourishing down deep.  We need the rays of Jesus melting away those habits that keep tripping us up.  We need to feel His touch  softening and thawing our cold hearts so that what was hidden can be transformed by His light.

 “Father melt away those things I tend to cover up and help me to radiate beauty that comes from being close to You.”

For His Glory
