Being a Light

God has perfect timing. You and I are here for purpose, His purpose. It does not matter that I may see that I have squandered the last 49 years not being a light to those who need it. Why? Because God uses everything in our lives up to today and the days ahead, no matter where we are in our walk with God.

This day is made for you and me to be a light. He is teaching me to do, as Philippians 2:14-16 says “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life–in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.”

It is extremely hard if you are living each day by your own strength and not by God’s. But He gives us His Word to stand on and that is to be our strength.

He wants us blameless. This takes work! Strength training each day….and I guarantee when you get serious with the Lord and what He commands He will give you sessions/workouts in strength training yourself in the department of complaining and arguing…..for that matter, any area of your life that you need God in!

This day was created for you to shine in the universe! Each day we are living calls for us to be a light to those around us.

Let us start today and the coming days putting to practice what God is revealing so that we can shine for those around us that are grieving, that have lost hope or have never known what hope or faith look like. It may be that you give a silent prayer, that you “hold out the word of life”, it may be a gentle smile, it may be something else the Holy Spirit is bringing to your attention, respond and act as you need to.

I have a love for people and desire to share with others faith of the one true King who has held on to me throughout the years. He pursued and He alone changed me from the inside out. It is not easy being a Christian and it has not been easy finding my voice or even being confident of who I am as a Christian. This though I know, 2 years ago a good friend of mine talked about how we wanted to go deeper in knowing God. It was a struggle....we had no idea of how to get to that deeper walk but then one day we formed a bible study. Two years later, we have strength in God...we have a deeper faith and a deeper understanding. What did it take? 1. Being Obedient 2. Being Committed 3. Staying in Prayer 4. Stepping out.

  1. Thanks for sharing your heart and your love of God. Someone will read this blog and find that they are not alone or they may decide to give their life to Jesus.


    1. Selina that is truly my heart’s desire….which is also God’s. Many have turned away from God, for whatever reason, but I truly believe that soon their hearts will respond and also those who never have had a relationship with God and may they come across this blog to begin either again or anew! Share with anyone you believe will benefit and may God bless this group today and always as we continue to walk by faith, go deeper in relationship with Him and each other and learn to be a light to those around us.
