Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16
Regardless of what kind of day we have had, the word of God tells us that we should let our light shine before others, so that they may see your good deeds and that God can be glorified. So, what kind of light have you been emitting? A shimmer, spark, colorful, wild flame, radiant, glow, flashy, blinding, bling-bling, auroras, fizzled, or a flicker?
Inner light refers to the light that is within us; the Spirit of God that dwells in us; God’s light. The inner light can sometimes be challenged every day. Here are five ways to keep your inner light shining bright.
Connect to the Light Source. When you are connected to the Light Source, our Heavenly Father, your light will shine brighter. Your path will illuminate so you can see and think clearly. Others will also be drawn to your inner light. Maturity and growth occur when your light is radiant. You are happier, glowing, confident, positive and aware of your true self.
Tap into your spirit and listen. Believe in yourself. God has placed a unique spirit with endless possibilities inside each of us. Use it! Increase self-esteem. You have the power to change how you think about yourself. Embrace it. Think positively about the directions for your life. Listen to God first, then listen to your spirit! Wake up bright and early with courage and tenacity. If you think positively, your inner light will glow. Negativity thinking is unhealthy. It causes anger, sadness, and confusion which can lead to unsafe lighting.
While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. John 12:36
Meditate daily: God is the ultimate source of our inner light. We must meditate and spend time with him daily in order to keep our flame burning bright. Reading God’s word, meditation, and solace can normalize negative emotions caused by stress. Meditation can also improve mental health and boost happiness. Relax. Breathe.
Be inspiring: Find the happy side of life and glow! Light is energy! Be of help to others. Be an encourager. Be the light within. Be a winner. Own your colorful space and personality and light up the world. Be who you are, accept who you are, and love who you are. God created us with this light, so let it shine! Seize the day! Don’t hide it under a bushel.
Never give up: I can assure you, there will be days when your inner light will flicker, flash, and fizzle due to faulty switches and life issues. There will be days when you feel like “the light is on, but nobody is home” due to heartbreaking experiences. There will also be times when you feel like you’re not the “brightest bulb in the pack” because you’re all burned out. Even though we have this beautiful light within us, we are still human, we are imperfect, we make mistakes, and life happens. Troubleshoot! Wait and be of good courage. Trouble will not last always. Light may be dim, but trust in Him! Believe in the Light Source and never give up!
We are all beautiful souls, full of light. It doesn’t matter if your inner spirit is a small flame or a blazing fire, keep it burning bright! Never disconnect from the Light Source!
Shine and be inspired to breathe!
