YOU ARE THE LIGHT

How are you shining your light?

The answer is not always the easiest to profess.

While we may have intentions of knowing God and sharing that knowledge with all we encounter, it doesn't always happen...

On Sunday, January 19, my mom and I headed to church and were delighted to discover that our retired pastor, Pastor Jim Smith, would deliver the message. God placed me there for a reason. Pastor Jim shared Matthew 5:14 and I've not stopped leaning on that verse and message since. We each may be the only one to share God's love with others. I've always known that, but needed reminded. Doing is not the same as knowing. I consider myself a naturally fun, helpful, inviting person, but after hearing Pastor Jim, I know I need to always be the light, even if it's for one person. No matter the circumstances, we're given a gift. "You are the light" has resounded in my thoughts more than I can count and I know God wants me to share it with you.

Not long after this message, I heard a commercial refer to the distance that the human eye can see a single light. I researched and found that in the dark, the human eye could see a candle flicker up to 30 miles away. Think about the power your light holds.

Has your light faded or gone out? 

Pastor Jim asked, "What happens when a light goes out in an individual?"

Whoever you are, wherever you are, and whatever your role(s), be the light. What will you do?
