Reflect

th (2)What does your face reflect?  Is it anger, disappointment, resentment or joy, peace, trust and contentment?

Do you crawl around in the darkness of this world, accepting defeat?  God wants you to be a light shinning bright.  Let Him radiant from your face. Trust that God knows just what you’re going through. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in and through you!

“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)

The light of His presences is what the world needs to see in you and me!  ~Debra  th (1)

th (1)I find in my Bible reading, when I’m rushed, my mind flips back and forth between my reading and what I have yet to do.  Time with God cannot be rushed

Spending time in the word with the Heavenly Father, allowing Him equip and strengthen us, should be our TOP priority and your wisest investment! ~Debra

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” ( Psalms 119:105)    th (5)

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. …” (Roman 8:1-39)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dark Side…

th (1)Some days it just seems like there is no hope.  Our problems and the stress associated with them can take their toll! We can see no light at the end of the tunnel and easily lose our focus.

Father God, I know that no matter what comes my way, you are there to see me through!  May I learn and grow from your direction.  May I seek you in ALL things and cling to your word and promises!

Psalms 30:5 “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

Hallelujah, Joy’s Gonna Come in the Morning! ~Debra

Shine and Reflect

December 27, 2012 — Leave a comment

I have a wide selection of candles throughout my home.  The scent and glow create an atmosphere that gives me peace and contentment.

The light that they can create within a room is just amazing and I’m always looking for an excuse to light them up.

Now, what do you see when you look at a lit candle, just the light?

I see light…some bright, some not.  I see wax seeping, wicks shorten by burning, and some have black residue but their still shinning…giving off a reflection.

We are called to shine our light among men!  Sure, our wax may be seeping, wicks burned down and we might even have some black residue but love heart, you are never alone.  In His strength we can reflect His love and purpose.  

He has promised,  “He will never leave us nor forsake us… (Deuteronomy 31:6)

“You are the light of the world.  A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light lamp and put it under a bowl.  Instead they put it on a stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:13, NIV)

Shine and reflect His love…~Deb
