Don't you just love it when several things come together to reveal to you a message!?
Over this past weekend while I was visiting my son and his precious little girls I was teaching them the Sunday school song "This little light of Mine".
Do you know it?
"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine"
Then the little ditty seemed to stick in my head and I found myself humming it to myself on my seven hour drive home.
THEN....Once I came home it was time for Soul Restoration class.
What an amazing thing to discover Melody was talking about
how our lights shine and make a huge difference in the world.
How even one light can make a difference in the darkness.
About how amazing it is that we can light another's light
without taking anything from our own.
I was touched by the message,
the video and the very thought of how
each one of us women in the world
are a light
and when we allow ourselves to shine before men
we make an amazing difference in the world we are a part of.
I opened up my art journal to do some of the art part of the lesson (a few days later)
and found that I had written something in there a couple of weeks prior.
"Dear Brave Girl, Don't ever doubt your strength, the power within. It is God IN you. With HIM all things are possible and He wants to shine through you!!!"
Apparently God is sending me (and others) an important message..........
and I wanted to share it with you!
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:16
I believe God wants you to know too that
YOU ARE A LIGHT!!!!!!!!
That He made you wonderfully, perfectly and that you
have a specific light that you are to SHINE!!!!
What is it that God put in your heart?
He put it there for a reason...for a purpose.
It is up to you, a responsibility,
to use it and to be a LIGHT for others to see.
It is our light that will lead others to HIM!
So, my question to you is this...
Are you letting your light shine?
I have to tell you something..........
I have found myself with my own light buried so deep
that no one could ever see it if they wanted to!
No one would even know it was there,
because it was buried under the mess of life.
I would allow the issues and overwhelm of life to darken the light.
Are you doing the same???
Let me encourage you to release the junk of life
to the only one capable...GOD Himself.
To trust HIM with your troubles and trials
and in the process your light shall SHINE
I hope the little ditty is ringing in your heart now
and you will go around singing the song to yourself as a reminder to
LET YOUR LITTLE LIGHT SHINE!!!!!
Lots of love and blessings to you!
