Depressed and negative you might be but even you can help yourself and stop trying to make us miserable too.
“If you get rid of unfair practices, quit blaming victims; quit gossiping about other people’s sins, if you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, your lives will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight. (Isaiah 58:9-11, MSG)
Stop trying so hard friends. Be a light right in the place where you are, right here and now.
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16, MSG)
Be a candle. Brighten your corner of the world.
Prayer- Father God, let the light of Jesus shine into and through me. Amen.
