“No one lights a lamp and hides it in a clay jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, they put it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.” Luke 8:16
The day is fast approaching where we will take our oldest “light” and place her in a tiny college dorm. While I would love to keep her at home, it would be like trying to hide her away. Much has been placed inside of her and it is time. A prayer for her is that everyone she comes in contact with see and feel, the light of Christ inside of her. Her smile may be masked, but her eyes sparkle with love. May she continue to love out of the overflow of her Savior. May she give grace in abundance, because she remembers the grace she has been shown. For those who do not yet know the Lord, I pray that her light makes them curious enough to find out why. And may the Lord bless her in abundance with friends that shine with the same light. It is not easy, but I am going to let you shine and keep fanning into flame that which the Lord ignited long ago.
