Dark lights


2.       Shine your light.

There is a need to let people see Christ in you. There is a need for you to be a guide to someone to find Christ.

We may be ardent readers of the bible and may have imbibed soo much of the Holy spirit in us but it is completely useless when we cover the light and keep it all in.
Yours may be just a daily encouragement with a bible verse  continue to do it.

It may be you share your testimonies of the deliverance that God has provided to encourage someone’s unbelief.

It could be you pray with someone once in a while, you share a little of your blessings or maybe you drag someone to church even if they complain, whatever it is remember that it is Jesus who works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure . He started something in you and He will see to its completion. It is not up to you to know how He wants to work it just trust and obey.

 

I have tried to pray on my own and tried to make it a habit to prayer at a certain time everyday. It is tough no lies but today my eyes were opened . I saw a group of friends go to pray then it hit me, the reason I struggle to keep up with my prayer times is probably because there is no one I am accountable to.   I Alone know I pray at this time ,I alone know why I am nowhere to be found at that time. I alone… how selfish ! I have had a light and I have hidden my light. I am letting I alone get into God’s presence forgetting I have been charged to go into the light and make disciples of nations ….teaching them that which The Lord has taught me. I hope my friends forgive my selfishness. I hope like those group of friends I invite my friends to go on prayer walks with me or share my daily Joyce Meyer devotions.

 

 

I have been a very dark light, a highly selfish Christian and I am broken as to how much I have let experiences and situations change me.

 

Hopefully you  and I can go on this journey of Shining together.

 If you have a light and you are covering it because you are scared of shy or for whatever reason you have know that someone’s ticket to heaven is on you.

 

Well once there is life there is hope

 

It is hard to communicate how you relate with God and how you want to be near him when you (me) have been ridiculed for that same reason earlier in life.

It is harder when you(me) know you are still struggling to walk the straight and narrow because of countless experiences of, let downs and heart breaks.

Be still and know that I am God.

The troubles of the present (and the past) cannot be compared to the glory that is to come.

 

Keep being the Christ-like person you have always been. Keep doing the things God has convicted you to do even if you don’t feel like it.
