I heard artist Kari Jobe talking about her song "We Are" on the radio the other day and it really struck a chord with me. She asked - what if the only light you had to tuck your children to bed at night was the light INSIDE of you? What if that's all you had to drive, to work, to live day to day. Would it be bright enough?
Her song is based on Matthew 5:14-16
14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
On this Friday - ask yourself that question. What if, WHAT IF the only light in your world - in the world of your family, your spouse, and your children - was the light INSIDE of your heart? How can you make it shine brighter? How can you help the whole world see? How can you walk down the street, in the mall, sit at your desk, and cook supper bearing enough light for those around you to see?
Be His light. Have the courage to do it. I promise it will feel amazing. Pray about how; it will be different for all of us.
God bless you today, Friends.
