Let His Light Shine


Sorry I’m late with the post today. It’s been a very busy week and I’ve let myself get behind on a few things.

First, an update on my son, Daniel. He ended up having a second open heart surgery on Tuesday due to some bleeding, but things went well and he is recovering now. I got to talk to him on the phone briefly, and though he was tired, he sounded good. I praise God and thank Him with all of my heart! I know He is there, watching over my boy, even when I can’t be. And I want to thank you all again for your loving prayers!

I am reminded often of how loved and blessed I am by all the kind and generous people God puts in my life. There are many that I may never meet in person here on earth, but I believe we will know each other someday in heaven.

I’d like to share a story that was posted on a new friend’s blog at Morning Story and Dilbert.

The Wise Woman’s Stone

A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the wise woman.

“I’ve been thinking,” he said, “I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone.”

This story is the perfect example of what it means to let His Light shine in us, and through us. I know there have been too many times in my own life when I’ve ignored the opportunities my Lord has given me to reach out to others and show His Spirit in me. I don’t want to waste anymore time going through the motions, playing the part of a Christian. I want it to be real, in every area of my life and with my whole heart. When people look at me, I want them to see Jesus.

Lord, I pray that Your Spirit leads me where You want me to go, that Your love is always in my heart, Your truth always on my lips, and that my eyes will see others as You see them. Amen.

Exodus 25:6


Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,” (Exodus 25:6 KJV)

If we run out of oil, the light goes out. We need to keep refilling with His Holy Word, so that we can continue to let His Holy Light shine through us out into the dark for all to see.

God bless,

Revelation 21:23


And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. (Revelation 21:23)

The Lamb as the light of heaven. Light in Scripture is the emblem of joy. Light is also the cause of beauty. No beauty is left when light is gone. Without light no radiance flashes from the sapphire, no beauty shines from the pearl.

Light is also the emblem of knowledge. In heaven our knowledge will be perfect, but the Lord Jesus Himself will be the fountain of it. All that puzzles us now will become plain to us in the light of the Lamb.

God’s Word has become my light. Without it, I live in darkness and cannot find my way. The bible tells us that “the Word was made flesh”, which is Jesus. He is the source of all joy, all beauty, all knowledge.
