Let Your Light Shine.

Oh the beauty of flying into the city at night!

As my time away from home was coming to an end, I looked out the airplane window and just marveled at all the bright dotted lights filling the black night.  I saw traffic lights, car headlights, parking lot security lights, and even emergency flashing lights.

Multiple signs of life…portrayed through lights.

We can be those lights.  In this dark world, we can be the light.  Yes we can.  Every positive word can be a shining light.  Every kind act can be a shining light.  Every smile.  Every piece of encouragement to a hurting heart.  Every gift to a stranger.  Every visit to a lonely soul.

Every time we do something kind, we radiate light.  If we all do just one thing, collectively we can be just like those city lights in the dark of the night.

John 8:12 – When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Shine bright, my friends.  Shine bright.

    Love this! I thought about such lights at 5:30 this morning when I was walking my dog. A little plane with a flashing red light was flying overhead and I thought about the person on the plane. Maybe they were flying home. Just read your excellent devo and it made me smile. Yes, we are al lights! Thank you for being one.

      You are so sweet! I love how God puts things on our hearts to write about and then He puts things on others’ hearts and the two become one. He’s great that way!
