In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
When I was in my early teens I was told I would be the light of my family. As you can imagine a teen with no type of religion or spiritual guidance really. It was scary. How would I be the light? I was depressed and so emotional. I was angry and unwilling. I just didn’t believe it. I never thought I’d be a follower of Christ. Yet, here I am, willingly being the light. Not without troubles and difficulties (John 16:33) but staying focused and knowing that the light in me is my Lord and Savior. Part of this short and quick testimony is also that not only did I not believe but I also made many unwise choices, sometimes innocently and sometimes knowing, those choices clouded my light and at times even turned it off. There were moments when it was so dark that I couldn’t see that beautiful light and neither did others. But I’m here to tell you that the choices I make now make the Light shine so bright it’s blinding, I truly cannot see where I am going (in a good way). What I do know is that I have made a choice to trust in my God! Trust my Savior! Trust my Guide!(Proverbs 3:5-6) I know that it doesn’t matter if I don’t know what is ahead of me, as long as I know who is walking by my side. Who walks beside you? Who are you trusting?
I want to give you an opportunity now to do the same. To let your light shine and to walk with the one who Loves you unconditionally. If you have never accepted Christ in your heart or want to rekindle that light that has been dim, take this moment, open your heart and say, Father, I thank you for your son, Jesus Christ. I thank you for sending Him to die for me, I believe that He rose just for me. Father, I repent of my sins and I turn to you. I surrender my heart to you and I receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Guide me, protect me and help me know right from wrong. In Jesus name Amen.
If you need prayer or have any questions please reach out. Now, go and let that Light shine bright!
