I couldn’t get enough. I wanted to spend every waking hour with him. To learn about who he was, where he had been, what his likes and dislikes were, and what his dreams were. We would spend hours together just talking and when the time to go home drew near, I dreaded it. I then counted down the hours until I would see him again.
A dreamy, budding love leaves you completely giddy and longing for more. It was always funny to get around friends and they would say, “well, well, well, isn’t someone happy?! You are practically glowing!”
That special feeling of love radiated on my face as I spent more and more time with him.
“And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments. And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses’ hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him. And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.” (Exodus 35:28-30)
The children of Israel had never seen anything like it. Moses’ face was actually glowing from being in the presence of the Lord for so long. I can only imagine what that might have looked like! Where my face seemed to glow from love, his actually did!
The power of God is transforming by just being in His presence.
Does your face shine after spending time with the Lord? Can people tell a difference in you because you meet with God? Do you reflect His truth, love, and his righteousness?
Today, get alone with God. Spend time with your first love! Let the Lord awaken your soul with His presence! Let your heart be filled with joy and peace!
