Holy. How often do you see yourself as holy? That’s not a term we usually apply to ourselves? Perhaps you’ve never married, but not by choice. Maybe you’re divorced, abandoned or abused. You might have had a baby outside of marriage, or you may have even aborted a baby. How holy does that leave you feeling?
And yet, if you are God’s child, he sees you as holy, no matter how damaged, broken or deserted you feel. You may wonder, How can he see me that way after everything I’ve done? It’s because he is looking at you through rose-colored glasses. These heavenly glasses have crimson lenses that have been tinted by the blood of his Son, Jesus — the Darling of the universe. Heaven’s precious Prince. The Savior of the world.
The Father cannot see the ugly stains, blotches and blemishes of what you may think is your unholy life. He cannot see your past failures or sins because they are filtered from his view by rose-colored lenses that have been drenched in the royal-red blood of his Son at Calvary. By that sacrifice, Jesus made it possible for you to be perfect forever — yes, holy! You may have trouble wrapping your finite human mind around such an infinitely divine concept. But it’s true nevertheless, and you can celebrate your holiness. Look forward to eternity with the Father, who loves you more than life itself — the life of his own dear Son.
And when you look into your mirror, see what your Father sees through rose-colored glasses…OnPurpose!

See Leviticus 11:45
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
My life is a series of #TESTS. When I get to HEAVEN, I will have GRADUATED!!
I have an active, healthy relationship with Jesus Christ. We spend the mornings and evening in conversation. He gives me gifts and blessing through out the day. I never leave home without letting Him know where I’m going or when I plan to return. Our relationship is strong and secure. There are times that I feel He is doesn’t give me His feedback because He is testing my character, my faith, my demeanor and my trust in Him. Sometimes He will leave an extra blessing for me to share with someone else and I often wonder if He is testing me when He does that – SO I ALWAYS look for ways to share. I often wonder if He would have me share because there are people who don’t know of Him for themselves and I am the only link to HIM for them. I wonder? What about you? Do you know HIM? Do you share the goodness of HIM with anyone else? Just thinking out loud.
Every time I pass a test, God notices and makes plans to reward me in HEAVEN!
What #metaphor do you use to paint a picture of your life? Are you living your life OnPurpose?
I pray you share the goodness of Jesus today…OnPurpose!!
