Being Responsible with the Light We’re Given

be these


MY PRAYER: Father, help us to remember that we are a light, regardless of our feelings or how dark our world may be. Help us to remember that even if we flicker a tiny bit, that we will help to rid the darkness of its power.

REMINDER FROM GOD: I will keep your lamp burning and turn your darkness into light. You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

{Psalm 18:28, Matthew 5:14, 16}

NOTE TO SELF: We are reflecting God’s amazing light and HE has equipped us to shine so brightly that it can be seen, even in the darkest night. Nations may rise and fall but our light will last forever.

We can and will forever impact hearts, and through new Social Media outlets, that impact can extend further than our minds could even imagine. We can reach the world for the Lord without even leaving our home.

We also need to realize that as a Christian, we are always reflecting who God is. We need to use our talents for the Lord, while also helping others grow and mature in their knowledge of the Lord. We need to encourage others to keep taking one step at a time…for the LORD. People’s opinions and ideas about Christ will be based on what they see and think of us. May they always see great things about Christ in me:

When I feel grumpy – shine

When I feel sad – shine

When I feel hopeless – shine

When I feel lost – shine

When I feel like God doesn’t hear – shine

When I feel alone – Shine

When I feel defeated – shine

Regardless of how we “feel,” those emotions will pass, but the light we give will last.

While we want to reflect God’s love, greatness, and mercy, we also want to remain authentically who we are. When things are rough, admit it and tell others you are relying on the Lord’s strength to carry you through. When grumpy, own it and apologize if you’ve hurt someone in the process.

{I am responsible for the light I give.}
