Shine your Light

Shine your light 🌟 ~ A little Thursday night encouragement!

Matthew 5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

.

God has big plans for us friends!

.

God has given us gifts, talents, skill sets, and the field of influence we are in today for a purpose…HIS GLORY!!!

.

We know this truth, but so many times we limit ourselves to what feels safe and comfortable. We shy away out of fear afraid to take the next step. Other times we put things off out of humility thinking, “why would God want to use little ole’ me.” But this is the exact reason He wants to use “little ole’ us” because it shows just how mighty and how powerful He is.

.

I want to remind us today that God’s ways are so much bigger and better than anything we could ever imagine.

.

God wants to use you exactly where you’re at today.

.

The passage in Matt. 5 explains how crazy it sounds to light a lamp and then hide it under a bowl. What good does that do? In the same way, as Christians we have a light and that light is Jesus! But what good are we doing by hiding in the background and not standing up?

.

In the Message version of Matt. 5 it says, “God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.”

.

There is so much conviction behind these words. I want to stand up and say🙋🏻‍♀️ I’m going public with my faith! Not just the day I became a Christian or the day I got baptized years ago, but EVERYDAY!

.

So let’s choose to go public, standing on whatever platform God is asking us to step up on whether it be big, small or somewhere in between.

.

Let’s step up in courage today!
