Last night my husband and I were sitting on the patio watching all of the lightning bugs.  It was like a fireworks display.  There were thousands of lightning bugs.  At every second there were lightning bugs flashing in all areas of the darkness.  As we looked across the field it was beautiful, and amazing at the same time, how many tiny little lights were scattered across the way.

Our world today is so dark.  There is so much hatred, sadness, and evil everywhere.  There is corruption and lies and conniving that I just can’t take it anymore.  I want to do something about it but how do we stop corruption?  How do we stop evil acts and liars?  How do we stop hatred and sadness and murders?

We light up our dark world, that’s how!  We may only be a small light like the tiny yellowish green light that is put off by the lightning bugs but when all Christians work together for the good of the Lord, we can be millions of tiny lights that can light up the darkness.  We can be like all of those lightning bugs last night that no matter where we looked there were little lights popping up everywhere!

I was very down yesterday and I think the Lord used those tiny little yellowish lit bugs to teach me a lesson.  All hope is NOT lost.  When there is darkness, don’t settle for sitting in the dark.  Do something to shine your light and light will always penetrate the darkness.

We must work together to shine our light in this dark world.  Who’s with me?

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