This Little Light

Matthew 5:14-16 You are the world's light-a city on a hill, glowing in the night for all to see. Don't hide your light! Let is shine for all; let your good deeds glow for all to see, so that they will praise your heavenly Father.

"This Little Light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!" Julia and I were listening to our kids CD with her name added somehow to each song, and this one has become her favorite, on the drive to our library class yesterday. Especially when we have to yell, "NO!" (hide it under a bushel----NO! I'm gonna let it shine...)

As we sang the song and I watched her through the rear view mirror I thought to myself...do I let my light shine? Do I hide it under a bushel when I'm tired (which is always) or busy, or trying to get the kids in the car quickly so we aren't late? Do I hide it when I speak to non believers, or can they see that something is glowing in me? I want others to see that I belong to Christ at all times, and after singing that song I was really convicted because sometimes I wonder how bright my light is shining.

Lord, I want people to praise your name because of my little light...please help "it", me to shine today!


  1. Isn't it amazing how much we can learn from our one year olds? I am in awe of how God can speak sermons to us through childen who have such a limited vocabulary.

  2. This is my favorite post of yours yet; I love your heart! You've always been a light for Jesus since I've known you Kristi. Initially your light shone in the classroom as a joyful and positive example of Christ for your students. Today, it shines brightly as you love and care for your husband and children. You are my sunshiney bossom friend! I love you!


Please leave an encouraging comment...I'd love to hear from you!
