Matthew 5:14-16 – “You are the light of the world. A city on hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a candle and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”
I write this today in darkness. I was writing in my prayer journal about 5:15 am when the electricity began to sputter. Then darkness. Now, you must remember that where I live, dark is serious darkness. No light from anything except the moon and it is not shining bright this morning.
So here I am surrounded by candles and flashlights, not looking forward to getting the little people up to get ready for school in the dark. There is a reason I was born in the time of electricity!
It reminds me of the verse above. I have put out some candles and have some flashlights ready to use to get ready. These lights will light a room where darkness prevails.
We are supposed to be this light for The Lord. We are supposed to show His love inside of us to a dark world, a really dark world. Things are bleak without the Light of the world. People need to see Him in us.
So today, princess, be a light on a hill to someone in need. Let them know that Jesus loves them unconditionally. He want to light their candle for Him.
