The more evil pushes against us, the more we need to focus on God and praise and worship, pray and thank Him. When the world’s darkness increases, we need all the more to focus on the light of the world, Who is Jesus and His Word, and emulate His light and carry it with us wherever we go. We are never alone or without hope. Focus on God!😃❤️
Light in Your Day
Today, no matter what is going on, good or bad, the light of your day is Jesus Christ and prayer to Him is the best and quickest way to bring that light to you. Bible reading also brings that light in. And when we have that close relationship with Jesus, we are the light because we radiate His light. It is beautiful!😃❤️
We Need A Rusty Christianity
Rust spreads, it is systemic, it is obvious. No, we need not destroy so maybe not the best analogy but I like those first three characteristics. We should become inundated (in the best sense) with Christ, overwhrlmed by Him. We should show His characteristics and light everywhete we go and be obvious. My big saying to keep me shining that light is, “Do we believe this or not?” If we believe, we would share. If we believe, faith if greater than any fear. If we believe, we would live it out loud and love deeply and consistently and help others be saved. We would not sit idly by quietly and reservedly while others do all the work and serve (love in action) and share the Goood News when this is what saves their souls.❤️❤️❤️
I find that when I go through a store (which I hate doing, I might add), even the grocery store, if I have a smile because I have just been feeling grateful for grace, mercy and blessing, I radiate a warmth that people notice and more often than not reciprocate. And yes, that was a very long sentence. So true, though. I have gone into stores grumpy and find everyone is grumpy. And I have gone into store with a fake smile and get about 50/50. But when I have been basking in gratitude to God for every little blessing (which is a challenge for us big picture people) which results in a genuine smile and appreciation for everyone I see, I am met with pleasantness, appreciation, a smile, a burden lifted, etc. It works this way about 90% of the time. And those 10% can be at least momentarily lightened.
So, my challenge is to think about blessing and just bask in God’s greatness and grace to us before and while walking into a store, so deeply that you cannot help but smile, and see what happens, really pay attention. See if you are the light Jesus was talking about that can light up your little world. See what light there would be if we all did it. Brings a twinkle to my eye to think about.😄❤
