Gotta Love that Face!

I LOVE you!

I hope that you are making friends with the face in the mirror. Gotta Love that Face! Maybe you think I’m obsessed with learning to love yourself.  Well, I have three teenagers ages 14, 16, and 18 and I’m encouraging them to make friends with the face in the mirror, too.  Look on the bright side.  At least you don’t have to worry about a big zit on your nose tomorrow morning.  Haha.

I am signed up to receive David Wilkerson’s daily devotional/blog for the last year.  You may know that David was killed suddenly in a car accident on April 27, 2011.  Since then, his son continues to send out his writings every morning.  You can imagine I found it amusing when I read David Wilkerson’s statement in this week’s blog:

You see, your face is a billboard that advertises what is on your heart.  All the joy or turmoil that is inside you is reflected in your countenance.  When I speak of countenance, I am talking about facial expression, body language, tone of  voice.”  David Wilkerson

Do you love your face?  God does.  The psalmist David said, “For I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God (Psalm 42:11).”

            I think both “Davids” are onto something here—something I’ve been trying to say through my goofy poems and devos on protecting our souls by rejecting poisonous thoughts that try to enter there.  It’s true!

This face that you see

                                             Is not what will be

                                             I’m destined for heaven

                                             And eternity

            But since we’re all still here (we are all here aren’t we?), what is your face advertising?

David Wilkerson’s face is most assuredly advertising total BLISS right now in the presence of God.  I hope you’ll take a moment to click this link to David Wilkerson’s article, “HOLY GHOST FACE LIFT”.  Come on.  Get over all the things you don’t like in the mirror and walk away from trying to attain the Barbie and Ken doll status.  As Christians, we need less time at the mirror and more time in the fields of harvest.  Don’t you think so?


About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

    I just copied David’s comments for a post for 3/3/12. I hope that’s alright with you to borrow your information. It will follow other posts about the Holy ghost!


  2. I’m sure he’s cheering us on right now, yelling from heaven’s grandstands to USE IT!! I don’t use their videos or pics on the site. But I think you’re good if you include the link. You go girl!

    Many times, David Wilkerson’s messages have been just what I needed at that moment.


  4. Me, too, Larry. His life was such a testimony–one he’ll keep forever and ever. But what strikes me the most is that now that he’s in heaven it’s his words that remain here. It inspires me to write, if for no one else, than for my own children and grandchildren. His words are still impacting us–Jean is posting this on her site soon. And on and on it goes!

    LOL Thanks for the chuckle (that smile on that horse was infectious) and the challenge Hope! May the Father continue to provide you wisdom as you guide those beautiful girls of yours! Greet them for me please. 🙂


  6. Isn’t that horse a riot? Makes me glad I have a dentist! I appreciate your blessing over my girls. Speaking of teeth, Eden hopes to get her braces off today. Yay! I’ll tell them you said hello. Hopefully I’ll see you at the Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference?
