The Light I Shine: Faith

Let your light shine before others, that they may... glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:15 NIV

Faith

Though at times
the light I shine
seems feeble
compared to others

It’s Light Divine
that’s forever mine
& free
for sisters & brothers

For Christ came
to redeem & save
sinners like me-
like you

So simply repent

& trust

He’s enough

& you’ll be Christ Lights

too.

The above poem is one I borrowed from my Twitter  account. I wrote it in response to a poetry prompt.

Sometimes:

Sometimes I drop everything I’m working on and reply to a picture or word prompt because it stirred something in my heart.

Sometimes deep waters are stirred and I end up writing a podcast or blog post too.

Nosy-to-Know Time:

I’m nosy-to-know if you ever feel like you’re a lousy light for Jesus?

If you’ve listened to many of my podcasts, you already know I often feel that way about myself. You will also know that I believe that whenever we bring our burdens to the Lord, He encourages us to remember He is the One who lights our candles and keeps them burning.

All the glory, and all the burdens, belong to God. We just need to believe, trust, and obey.

I’m working on a future podcast about a Bible verse I was going to write about today; however, it got kinda wordy. I decided it would be better as a podcast and future blog post for my other blog. I love it when I can’t stop writing.

And speaking of blog posts, here’s the link to my main blog where I share memoir style posts: Wendy L. Macdonald
