Shine Beloved!


Jesus’ face shone like the sun in today’s Gospel, also read on the Feast of the Transfiguration. As God’s beloved we are also called to shine. In the first reading from Genesis, God tells Abram to leave and go to the land that he will be shown. God promises to bless Abram. This is what happens when we keep our eyes on the Lord. We will be blessed in our efforts if we have prayerfully discerned them as God’s work. It is tempting after a glorious event to stay on the mountaintop, to bask in the warmth of God’s love and forget that the world still needs us to shine, to continue to carry out our mission to bring about the kingdom.

Listen for the voice of God in your life. Act on what you hear. Shine brightly so that all will see God’s glory through you.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
