Be the Light!

For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink;
I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me;
I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’
“Then the righteous will answer Him,
‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink?
‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You?
‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
“The King will answer and say to them,
‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them,
you did it to Me.
Matthew 25:35-40

I was browsing through some other blogs and came across this inspiring video on Timothy Wallace’s blog! If only we all practiced love in the true sense of the word…what a different world we would live in!!

Be the light in someone’s life as you journey through each day. Take the time to make a difference. ❤

Choose to Surrender

Therefore submit to God.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners;
and purify your hearts, you double minded.
Lament and mourn and weep!
Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.
James 4:7-10

Choose to Surrender

There is conflict in life, it’s all around
Decisions which you must make
Be true to your heart or listen to your mind
You must choose which path to take
Will you rely on Christ and His way
Trusting He will carry you through
Or turn to the world for justification
To support your point of view
Life is never easy, comfortable or light
The choices are often quite tough
But when you submit to the Lord above
The road is always less rough
To surrender to Him requires trust and faith
A strong belief deep within
Hold tight to the Lord, let Him work through you
Open your heart and soul
Give God the chance to shine
Let Him lead your way and ease your pain
Then all good things will come in His time

He is God

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed;
We are perplexed, but not in despair;
Persecuted, but not forsaken;
Cast down, but not destroyed.
II Corinthians 4:8-9

He is God

When the world appears hopeless
and all of life is falling apart
When dark skies loom ever closer
and burden are too heavy to carry
Always know that someone is there
He cannot be seen and often is not heard
But to those that need Him most
He will surely reveal Himself
With compassion, He gently caresses troubles away
With love, He encourages through the tough times
With sympathy, He lets you now He understands
He too has walked the trials of this world
He is pure
He is peace
He is hope
He is your guardian and your source of light
when none can be found
Your comforter and companion for life
He is God

Savor the Moment

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want, He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalm 23:1-4

Savor the Moment

When your down and feeling blue
Here is a tip that might help you
No matter where you are, let your mind be free to wander
Give yourself time to dwell on all that life has to offer
The warm sunshine softly touching your face
The gentle breeze caressing your cheeks
Or perhaps you envision yourself basking on your favorite beach
Is it a stroll with a friend while discussing your day
That helps you unwind and whisk cares away
Whatever your delight, let the feeling consume you
Savor the moment, create a new point of view
Life is all in how you view it this one thing I know
Focus on the Lord and let your smile grow
