This Little Light Of Mine

graphic from art.com
Matthew 5:16Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Today I thought I would share this really encouraging email that my mommy dearest sent me- she is so cool and thoughtful. I hope that it blesses you as it did me! BTW can you see my obsession with light houses?? :)

I was inspired as I read this passage from a devotional that I receive daily. As I read it I was inspired to included you in my prayer as I asked God to give you [us] an opportunity to be the perfect expression of HIS light in your [our] surroundings today as you [we] show your [our] faith, love and courage that originates from the Spirit of God within. With that, please make sure that your 'inner batteries' are energized and ready to shine brightly for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ because you [we] just might be the the only representation of Christ that someone will see today.
So let your little light shine, shine, shine.

Pray for Others
We are living, breathing expressions of God’s spirit.
Praying for another person is a sacred honor. With a love that originates from the Spirit of God within, I offer this prayer:
“Dear God, I pray for loved ones and myself, knowing that it is Your spirit that energizes us and Your wisdom that guides us. In heart and mind, we are one with You; we go about being perfect expressions of Your light in the world.
“Created and sustained by Your love, dear God, I affirm that Your right and perfect will is being fulfilled in our lives and that Your guidance is directing our every thought and activity.
“You are our source of faith, love, courage, health, and every other divine quality that we, as Your children, are capable of expressing. God,
“I will put my spirit within you, and you shall live.”—Ezekiel 37:14

Go Forth and Be Blessed and Seek God for the opportunity to Be a Blessing to someone today.
