Be the Light

It's the Christmas season...a season that gives me "all the feels." It's a time that even people who don't normally attend church or have "feels" get the feels. ;) My heart has been so heavy lately and I still haven't been able to pinpoint it. The more I think about it the less I think it can actually be pinpointed to ONE thing. We have all "stuff" going on. We all have the baggage that comes along with the life we live. (And isn't it funny as humans we all think we always have it the worst!?!? LOL)

It was no coincidence as I sat down in church Sunday it was just what I needed to hear. "Be the Light." We woke Sunday morning tired and with crabby kids but we didn't let Satan win. We made a deal with the kids that they could sit with us in "big church" instead of going to their classes since it was the Christmas service. (proof God is ALWAYS in control)

As we worshipped at the beginning of the service I watched as our 7 year old closed his eyes and raised his hands... he sang ever so sweetly. He was being a light...when no one was watching. (and even if they were he didn't care) Why as adults do we shy away from being a light?

As the service went on we referenced Matthew 5:14

Paster Shawn stated, " Don't withdraw, don't fake it, BE REAL. Let others know we have flaws but we still love Jesus." The entire sermon can be viewed HERE

So as we finish out this Christmas season I am challenging you to join me as we BE THE LIGHT and SHINE....(see the entire song HERE-flashback to youth group early 2000 ;;)
