Light of Life



I see these intricate fantasy novels and movies, and I am astonished. So much effort and thought has been put in to make a world of heroes and heroines. Where light prevails over darkness. They seem to awaken something within us. It is not a surprise when you consider who we were made to be. What the deepest part of our heart knows to be true.

The bearers of light.  A people entrusted with the light and reflection of the Perfect One. That is who we are called to be. It is rare to meet someone who radiates this hope and fulfillment that we all long for. Yet as children of the one true God that is our calling. Yes, we get tired. Yes, we want to sit down and eat Queso and watch Marvel movies. At the same time the fullness of life that has been deposited on the inside of us. It is spilling out to the world around us. We need only to stay looking at His face. Responding to His voice and remembering all that Jesus has done.

Next thing you know your light will shine and attract the lost around you. His light shines, and you get the honor of watching people feel seen, feel understood and walk into a full life. This journey is worth it. It is not a performance but a beautiful calling and great honor. Time to shine!! 

John 8:12
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Matthew 5:14-16
 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."
