A Window To His Love

So as most people know, I am Mormon and proud of it :) I love my Savior Jesus Christ and strive every day to become more like Him. I sang a song in church today by Julie DeAzevedo called "A Window To His Love," and I just wanted to share some of the lyrics because I think they are beautiful.

I want to be a window to His love,
So when you look at me you will see Him.
I want to be so pure and clear that you won't even know I'm here
'Cause His love will shine brightly through me.
A window to His love, a doorway to the truth,
A bearer of the message He'd have me bring to you.
And with each passing day, I want to fade away.
So only He can be seen
 and I become a window to His love.

I know it is super cheesy to quote a song or whatever, but it's Sunday and I wanted to write a post that actually means something and doesn't just list the trivial things I do during the day. I love this song because it reminds me what I'm supposed to be doing. I'm supposed to be trying every day to become like Christ and share His love with others. It's often said that our prayers are answered through other people, but what if those people aren't paying attention? I never want to be someone that God can't rely on to answer someone's prayer. I always want to be the instrument that he can depend on to help and serve other people. Not saying that I am right now, just that I want to be. Life isn't about being the best by yourself, it's about forgetting yourself and becoming the Lord's best. Being a window to His love means having that perfect love within you and shining it to others. Our actions shouldn't be aimed to glorify ourselves, but to praise our Heavenly Father, show gratitude for our talents and blessings, and help God's children know that He loves and knows them. I know I'm not perfect at this, but the important part is if we are trying. It's not about how far along the path we are, but if we're moving in the right direction. Gordon B. Hinckley often said, "Try a little bit harder to be alittle bit better today." We just need to grow and improve little by little, step by step. After all, it's through small and simple things that the Lord brings great things to pass.
