This little light of mine….. Part II

Last night as I’m sitting at the stop light waiting for it to change, I was confused by all of the green lights that were shining when my light turned green. The confusion moment that I experienced showed me that even though light was present, it caused confusion to me because I didn’t process the timing of them being synced. At times in our lives, yes our lights are shining but they are off synced with God’s plan and purpose for us. Take time to get back in sync with God and make sure the light is shining with His control panel. I’m not saying that it’s necessarily a bad thing to have the light out of sync because it should caused you to pause and allow that conviction to do its job. Having those convictions were created to steer us back to our Father. Admit that getting out of sync with God caused you to be confused and that you are going to get back on track with him. Another thing that God revealed to me about all of those green lights that I experienced last night, was Him giving me the green light to keep going pursing my dreams and that He has already gone ahead of me to make that happen. I invite you to truly seek God’s will for your life and allow Him to speak to you. It’s all about building that intimacy with Him. His desires will become your desires if you fully let Him in. Invite Him in so He can unpack a become a permanent resident.

SPOTLIGHT VERSE:

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin 1 John1:7

Have you ever wondered why when you meet or are around someone who is full of joy, causes you to feel extremely comfortable around them and happy? That person or persons are living in the light of Christ. The “comfortable” feeling  that they are experiencing is God’s light. When I was living in darkness, I didn’t appreciate and fully understand the meaning of the light. That caused me to try and avoid the light or most times I would just tolerate it and put my shades on to block it out as long as I could. I pray that you understand what I was saying. Are you wearing your sun shades right now or in constant search of some sort of shade? I’m here to tell you that being in the presence of the light and walking in the light is the way that God created us. He created us to be dependent on it and without it, unfortunately we will never live a fruitful purposeful life that He designed us to experience. I don’t know about you, but I want to experience all of the blessings that God has for me on this earth. It’s the only way to live! So be encouraged my friend…It’s not too late to turn towards the light and take off those sun shades.

This little light of mine….. Part I

Ok am I the only one that started singing 🎤 this little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine… Let it shine, let it shine, let it shinnnnneeeeeee (insert a run of your choice)🎤. That last part was me being silly. But as a little girl I use to sing that song and did not truly understand what it was all about. I would say within the past 2 years I grabbed a hold of the Scriptures that gave us the perfect examples to walking in the light. Another song that just came to mind is We’ll walk in the light, the beautiful light, somewhere the dew-drops of mercy are bright. Shine all around us by day and by night. Jesus, the light of the world. It’s amazing how songs that once meant nothing to you, can speak to your life in mighty ways once you allow God into your life. And not just allowing him come in temporarily to visit you but to unpack and reside in your heart permanently. There are so many verses that tell us how we should be as Christ followers. Here are some of my favorite scriptures:

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin 1 John1:7

Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105 NLT

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 1 Peter 2:9 NLT

You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. Matthew 5:14 NLT

All of those verses speak about Jesus and how He was sent to be the light to this dark world. When we decided to become a Christian, we made a decision to be some form of illumination source for this dark world. You may be thinking 💭💭💭 well my life is too dark right now and how can I possibly be a light to someone. Well my friend that is the beauty of knowing our heavenly father. He does not care how much you’ve messed up, he can still use your mess and turn that into your message. Don’t allow the enemy to feed you those lies of shame from your sins. It’s his goal to keep you down so that you will not illuminate this earth. I saw a quote about a year ago that talked about glow sticks. We all have to be broken in order to glow.

I just decided to make this a short series about the light. God has a way of delivering messages right on time. So stay tuned in to this light mini series. I will take a Scripture a day that I listed above and break it down to you. Also I will post some pictures I took of some different beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
