Desiring the Light

Posted: November 30, 2010 in Word of Encouragement

I humbly write in this space a word of encouragement to be a light in a dark place, to be the salt and light of the world, and to expose darkness more by how we live than how we “talk”.

My voice has been a loud megaphone for the Lord sometimes; I have been able to speak a word of encouragement to a brother or sister in distress. A word of encouragement to a person in a place of searching out the Father’s will for their life. What is better for some situations is our prayer and supplications, our quiet time with the Lord, and our obedience to allow our vessels to become a fragrant aroma in the presence of friends or foes, co-workers and peers alike. The reality is that God watches our moves, and the motivations and desires in our hearts.

What is our ambition in life? What do we pray for, and why do we pray for it? Would we be able to say with our lives that the “cup is clean on the inside as well as on the inside”?

There is no passing grade, and the only perfect grade starts with J and ends with S.

Somewhere in there, in the center of his will that is, we find his purpose for us. We find out what we are really made of, not primarily in the physical, but of the spiritual . How can we let more light shine in this dark place? It takes an honest search for the cistern that never dries, and us being that vessel waiting to be overflowing.

Be encouraged as I say that I am learning, just like you, what it means to make my life speak volumes about what Jesus has done in my life.
