Be the Light in a Dark Room

 Be the Light in a Dark Room
 
        We are getting to that time of year where it seems that someone hits fast forward on our lives.  Thanksgiving is around the corner and then Christmas literally seems like it’s the next day.  Take the time to hit pause on that fast forward button.  Look at all the wonders that are in your life.  Sometimes we get so focused on what is not going right that we forget to be thankful.  That is what this time of year is for; to be thankful.
 
        Imagine a cold, dark room lit with only one candle.  People would be drawn to the light for the warmth and to see.  We all have that special light in us called the Holy Spirit.  Let others see that light in you and watch how much warmer that room gets.  When this light is lit in us, we are giving glory back to God.  Share that warmth with others.  All it takes is to smile at someone standing behind you at the store or to say hello to someone as you pass them on the street.
May the Lord smile on you.” Numbers 6:25 NLT
Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving!

What is your favorite part of Thanksgiving?

  3. I love the idea of taking time to enjoyeaxh others and the holiday. This year I made food prep easy on myself so Thanksgiving day I could spend time with family instead of exhausted slaving away in the kitchen. Thanks for sharing with #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup!
