This Little Light

 

Do you remember the song, This Little Light of Mine? Many sang it when we were kids.

 

This Little Light Of Mine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Won't let Satan blow it out.
I'm gonna let it shine.
Won't let Satan blow it out.
I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. 

Hide it under a bushel - NO! 
I'm gonna let it shine. 
Hide it under a bushel - NO! 
I'm gonna let it shine, Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. 

Let it shine over the whole wide world, 
I'm gonna let it shine.
Let it shine over the whole wide world, 
I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

 

There is a lot to be said about how difficult it is to sometimes let our grace gift, the Light of Jesus, shine. Every day we are faced with the darkness of the war between good and evil. I have to admit; I often want to high tail it out of there when this is going on.

So, the Holy Spirit has given me this thought, and I'm not sure how to share it exactly, but here it is.

 

 

There are two forces. One Light, God, [Heaven] and one Dark, Satan, [Hell]. We have the choice to determine for ourselves where we will spend eternity.

Insert doubt or the gray matter of life. Where do we look for answers when we're in this gray sludge? We can only see in the light. We cannot see in the dark.

 
Wgb

 

The sludge of life varies in size throughout our days, but there are two things that remain; Light and Dark that expand or narrow the gray sludge depending on our choices. He says, Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying, "This is the way; walk in it."  Isaiah 30:21


Wgb2

 

If we don't choose to see the Light and accept the gift of Salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, our world will end in darkness.


Bw

 

When we do accept Jesus and stay in the Light of his Word we see clearly. We will begin anew in the presence of the Light because Light wins the battle.

Life is hard. I struggle. I have gray sludge. Yet, God provides me with great joy. He assures me. He leads me. He comforts me.  He directs me to let my little light shine for him in all circumstances. When I feel like I am in quicksand, he reminds me of my concrete foundation.

When I said, “My foot is slipping,”
    your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me,
    your consolation brought me joy. Psalm 94:18-19

 

 

 

I love this Little Light video...
