Be The Light

Someone shared a great thought with me this other day, and I thought I’d pass it along.

Maybe it will be one you’ll come back to throughout the week…

If we, as Christians, are the light, and we have the Light shining through us, then, we are much like a flashlight shining into a darkened place.

In a darkened space where there is no other light, when you are holding the flashlight,

You can see the light.

But you can also see the darkness all around you.

All of it.

When you are holding the light, you don’t see the light as brightly as when you are standing in front of the light.

When you’re standing in front of the light, it can almost blind you,

Nothing is hidden.

So, keep shining even when it feels the darkness is crowding in around you.

The Light within you cannot be snuffed out unless you turn it out.

The Light within you will shine brightly no matter who or what attempts to destroy it.

The Light within you is eternal and has eternal impact on all who see it.

Keep shining the light even when all you see is utter darkness with the tiniest light.

Keep shining.

Be the Light to a darkened world.

In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

John 1:4-5 NKJV

In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

John 1:4-5 NIV

Is She a Keeper?

Find that one who will be there when tough times come.

Find that one who will show up in the rain and ride the tide.

Find that one who will remain when everyone else walks out.

Find her or him, and don’t stop till you do.

Don’t settle for second best.

Don’t settle for leftovers.

Seek till you find and don’t rest till you do.

It’s worth it.

I promise.

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.

John 15:13

Keep Climbing

No matter where you are in the climb, keep climbing.

If you’re just starting out, keep climbing.

If you’re half way there, keep climbing.

If you’ve reached the top, either climb your way down and back up again,

Or find another mountain to conquer.

Just keep climbing and never give up.

Do not remember the former things,
Nor consider the things of old.

Isaiah 43:18

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Keep Hoppin’ Those Boulders

Grief is like the boulder hopping moments of life.

To succeed in getting to the sunset, you’ve got to keep moving.

To achieve the goal of the setting horizon, you’ve got to keep taking the jump.

To get past the hardest points, one foot must stay in front of the other.

Even if you slip. Even if you stumble.

Keep going forward. Keep going beyond.

You’ll get there.


And you’ll be so glad you did.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand.

Psalm 37:23-24

Never forget

Thank you for your time.

Thank you for your effort.

Thank you for your sleepless nights and endless days.

Thank you for your nightmare and your gut wrenching heartache.

We will not forget your sacrifice.

We will not forget your pain.

We will not forget all that you gave;

So, we could live free.

I’m sorry it cost you so much.

And I am eternally grateful.

We will never forget.

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 8

Whimsical Wednesday (Reblog)

[…a little reblog that spoke to my heart again. I pray it will speak to yours, too.]

Somedays, it just doesn’t feel so whimsical The rain pours down like an avalanche The bills pile up, threatening to bust the dam The kids get sick, …

When It Rains, It Pours

[…a little reblog from a writing quite a while ago. Hope it blesses you…]

Sometimes, when it rains, it pours… Yesterday, I talked to a gentleman whose mom passed away last week. Just a few days prior to this news, his wife…
