“You are the light of the world….Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven”. Matthew 14: 15-16 (KJV)
Every waking moment, we hold the potential to change the world around us. God has filled us with gifts, talents and opportunities to love, serve others, be successful and make a difference in our families and communities.
God designed us to live life to its fullness! Within each life lies a rich and inner power to change the stagnant life of fear, idleness and “do-nothing”. We will always have stumbling blocks to disconnect us momentarily from our purpose and there will always be lessons to learn. However, God will always be there to help us rise above these challenges. He will not give us more than we can handle.
‘If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be” Maya Angelou
We should be like lamps (lights) in the world, shining bright. Our good deeds, abilities and gifts were meant to testify to the world around us that, no matter how dark or how difficult the circumstances may be, the source who gives us “light” can turn those dark days into better days.
Don’t ever miss an opportunity to share your gifts to help someone in need. Our unique journey is destined to change the world if we focus and stay on course. It’s so easy to dream and wish our life away and never reach our full potential.
You are the light of the world! The world around you needs you, your gifts, abilities, knowledge, or whatever you have to offer to make a difference. We miss opportunities because of fear. We really don’t know how much impact we have on people’s lives….just by blogging our knowledge and sharing experiences.
“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world” Robin Williams
Never let a thief of your past rob you of your future. Your gifts make room for you and force you to think creatively, outside the box. Learn to appreciate your inspirations and experiences. When you begin to see people positively change because of your gifts, you have every reason to celebrate! It’s an amazing feeling!
“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called TODAY” Hebrews 3:13 (NIV)
Let your light shine! Transform the world around you! Be inspired to breathe!
