|my tea lights in the kitchen|
I love lighting up tea lights in our home. The moment I get up and prepare sandwiches for my husband's and child's lunch, I get a delight watching even a tiny light lit up our kitchen in the early morning hours or at mealtimes.
I love that a small ray of light can truly illuminate the dark corners of that particular room. We are called to be the "light of this world" as believers. I have that tendency sometimes to hide my light, I think. Like when I get quiet when I should speak. Or at work, when I go with the flow [not good!]. Or go back to old habits that extinguish this light.
Oh Lord, forgive me for my sins. Forgive me for not reflecting your Light the way You want me to. Forgive me for those times that I don't explain Your Light to others who have never seen it before. Help me have the eyes to see the needs of others. Strengthen me Oh Lord and that I pray also for all believers. So that we may continue to always be burning strongly for Your light to be seen in those dark areas of this world. For those who are still living in the dark, that they won't have fear to step into Your light and be exposed into Your light and turn away from any dark deeds. Thank You Lord for Your forgiveness, for Your unfathomable love, mercy and grace. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
