Shine for God
Today I sit at my Father’s feet first, before anything else. I bow to Him, hold my hands open to Him, and release my desires for today. I ask Him to shine ON me first, then I ask Him to shine THROUGH me onto my brothers and sisters. May I put down my devices so I can see faces instead of screens. May I hear quiet before my own voice jumps in to be the answer to someone’s ache. May I extend my arms in praise and hugs instead of using them to bustle and rush. May my feet carry me to your cross, Jesus, instead of simply carrying me on errands. May I do even small things with your vision, God, knowing there is no small thing in the kingdom’s economy. Amen.
“For God, who said, ‘Let there be light in the darkness,’ has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6 NLT)
