I grew up singing this little light of mine, I ‘m gonna let it shine. I love the words to this song and how it reminds me to just be a light. You may be facing some challenges and your light may seem a little dim but be encouraged by the word of God. Matthew 5:16 NKJV says Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. So shine on today. We must be a light. We must reflect. I have decided to turn on my high beams and let my light shine for the glory of God no matter what. What about you?
We all have times in our life when there is a gap. Gaps show up in our employment, relationships, finances, physical or mental health, and even in our ministries. Christ is the perfect example of how to handle the gaps of life. He stood in the gap for us by dying for our sins and He fills in the gap for us by giving us His promise never to leave or forsake us.
Are you someone who stands in or fills in the gap for others? Let’s pray for wisdom and knowledge during the gap seasons life brings.
Here’s a little something that came to my mind recently while listening to this song called Smile by Jonathan McReynolds. My thought was “God is always thinking about you.” It made me smile inside and out and I hope you keep smiling too because God is always thinking about you. Take a listen and keep smiling.
I have two words on how not to judge others and they are LOG OUT. Sometimes I forget to log out of my computer leaving it open and susceptible to being hacked or other dangers. God is not speaking in terms of a computer when it comes to judging others. When I fail to take the LOG OUT of my own eyes and look in the mirror, I am susceptible to much more danger to myself and others. I am so grateful for God’s Word which reminded and convicted me in two simple words from Matthew 7:1-5.
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. Mat 7:1-5 ( ESV)
Thought: We must not forget to LOG OUT to keep living on pitch.
