let HIS light shine

i thought i'd share something that i wrote in my S (scripture) O (observance) A (application) P (prayer) journal this week. i was reading from ephesians 1 and this verse really struck me.

:18 i pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope He has given to those He called - His holy people who are His rich and glorious inheritance. (nlt)

i love the visual of a heart so filled with light that it's bursting at the seams and rays of light can't help but flow out in all directions. how could you not have hope if there was so much light . so much that your heart - your core - can not contain it. if i am called by God, which i believe i am, then He wants me to be filled with His light. i want to be filled with as much light as i can possibly hold. even more, i want to be so full that i'm bursting at the seams and all those around me will see and feel HIS light.

great blog on light. I think of Jesus saying he was the light, and how lived, shining love everywhere.

thanks for the thought.I'll probably journal on it tonight in my private journal.

Not only are we to be light but we are to let that light shine and not hide it. Simple little song we all learn at a very young age but then struggle with through out life. Thanks for a nice post about bursting out with that light.
