988th -- Sparkling Eyes


The life that we lead is a living testimony to who we really are on the 
inside. Whether we realize it or not, people are watching to see how we 
carry ourselves in daily life. What we must always remember and keep in 
mind is that we should always act as Christ did and use our life as a 
living example to encourage, inspire and challenge all people to live life
fully and be all that they were created to be. I can attest to the fact 
that it brings great joy to one's heart when they know their life has made
an impact that will never be forgotten. 

When we take the initiative to encourage those who are feeling low and 
challenge those who feel like giving up to try just one more time, we are 
in essence acting as Angels in disguise. We are using our life to be a 
blessing in someone else's life and when we act in this manner, we are 
ensuring a blessed legacy. Be encouraged to live a life full of character,
integrity and faith and use your life to make an impact on others that will
never be erased or forgotten.

I hope this message encourages your heart to have a zeal for life that is
inspiring to others. When we impact a single soul in a positive way, the
ripple effects can be infinite.


I got a new picture of my sponsor child Lizther in the mail today. I was 
amazed at how different she seemed now. It looked like she had grown up 
overnight. I went and took her older pictures of her younger days and 
placed them side by side with the new photo. There was no doubt about it.
The little child I had started sponsoring through Children International 
several years ago had grown into a lovely young lady.

I went into my bedroom and pulled out my scrapbook full of her letters and
drawings. It was incredible seeing her grow up in them too. With each one
I saw her becoming better and more beautiful both inside and out. This 
once scared little girl, living in poverty, was now a wise, wonderful 
teenager determined to finish school, start a career, and help her family.
I have no doubt either that she is going to bless this world with her life.

Smiling I put the scrapbook down and looked once again at her pictures over
the years. Year by year the sparkle of light and joy in her eyes seemed to
grow a little brighter. It made me happy thinking that my support, 
encouragement, and letters over the years might have had some small part 
in nurturing that light.

Any day that you can add to the sparkle of love and joy in other’s eyes is
a day well lived. Anything that you can do to increase the light that 
shines in another’s soul is worth doing. God put us here to spread His 
light, to share our own, and to help everyone we meet to shine a little 
brighter as well. Do all you can then to bring a little laughter, a little
light, a little help, and a little happiness to another’s day. Do all you
can to bless this world with your talents and with your love. Do all you 
can to live your life so that even the eyes of those watching over you 
from Heaven sparkle with joy.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Romans 12:10-14 “Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love;
in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in 
spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; 
continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; 
given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.”

Romans 12:18-21 “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably
with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place
unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the
Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him 
drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not
overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Galatians 6:2-4 “Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of 
Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he
deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall 
he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”

Romans 15:1-4 “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the
weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour
for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as 
it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on Me. For
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, 
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
