You are the light of the world: July 15, Daily Reflection

Matthew 5: 14-16

You are the light of the world.  A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket;  it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.  Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly father.

I believe that God gave each of us freewill but if we listen to our hearts we choose the path that God will help to guide us down.  I believe that you have clicked onto this blog for a reason today.  For whatever reason God wants you to be reading this and you have to figure out that reason.  God created you to be a unique individual there is no one on this earth like you.  He has given you gifts that you probably don’t even realize you have yet.  It is hard to believe that you have some of the gifts he gave you but you do.  Think for a minute what are some of your talents?  Not just what you do for a living or your hobbies but personality traits.  What type of friend are you to others?  Are you giving?  Are you sensitive?  Are you wise?  Are you just?  How do you treat those around you on a daily basis?  Really take a few minutes to think about who you are. 

God also gave the majority of you reading this today the gift of being a mom.  What an awesome reality that is.  To be able to love someone that greatly and to help that child to grow and develop into a being that can understand the world and to give them all that you were given, values, not material things.  How do you use the gifts that God has given you to be a better mom, sister, daughter, friend, wife?

God created each of us for a reason.  I believe He wants us to use our special gifts of who we are to make this place a more peaceful, kind and loving place to be.  So as you go through this ordinary Wednesday consider what gifts he has given you and consciously throughout the day try to use a few of those gifts for the good of others.  “You are the Light of the World” let that light shine in your little corner of the world, even if no one notices what you do believe me God will notice!
