For the last few weeks, my eyes have been glued to the TV watching the news report the devastation from hurricane Harvey and now hurricane Irma. My heart aches for those who are going through this and experiencing loss. I pray.
I’m encouraged by the stories I hear about people coming together from across the country from all walks of life to help — offering assistance and hope. AND…the resilience + positive attitudes and outlook of many of the victims!
I see LIGHT in dark times.
We ALL have our own unique “dark” hard times in life. The reality is, life. is. hard. BUT through that, it doesn’t need to dull our shine! As we are living your lives and engaging with others; friends, co-workers, family, strangers. Our light can SHINE! It’s a choice.
Is your light shining? Do others see light from you? Regardless of your circumstance?
How do you maintain the light and/or shine brighter?
What helps me is knowing my strength and hope comes from the Lord. I have bad days, I do. But God is good. Most often when I take the time to look for the good in my dark hard situations I can find something to be grateful for. THIS fuels me to SHINE BRIGHT.
I love this quote by Dwight L. Moody »» “We are told to let our light shine, and if it does, we won’t need to tell anybody it does. Lighthouses don’t fire cannons to call attention to their shining- they just shine.”
Lets choose to be intentional about shining our light into the lives of others.
