Children Of Light


















"For you were formerly darkness, but now you are light in the Lord, walk as children of light." Ephesians 5:8

God has a plan to use each of us to light the world. Let's all do our part as "children of light."

Blessings and prayers,

Andrea

Andrea,

This is completely true especially as we go about our day to day activities, we need to constantly make sure that God's light in shining on within us so when we come across someone in complete darkness they will smile because they found something in us, they didn't have themselves.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Jesus said, "I am the light."

Edie said...

Amen! I try to keep my mind on being salt and light all the time. I don't always succeed but I keep at it.

It's great to always keep that in our minds and hearts as we represent the Lord's light in those dark areas where He wants us to go and be able to shine, not of our own brightness, but that one that is His! Have a great weekend sister. Love and blessings.

I want to shine for Him. He is the light who shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot comphrend it. Sarah

A good reminder to try and do our best to glorify God each day. I don't always succeed either. Thank God for his great mercy!

Oh, I just came from Kat's to your blog and both of you have powerfully ministered to me. Was about to give up...but God spoke a powerful word to me through His word. AND I dusted myself off and here I am. PTL!

Is this light house a picture from your vacation? Which light is it?

Yes, this is so true. We must shine the light! I'm trying, though it is not always easy. Thanks for encouraging me, Andrea.

I love the title "children of light". It says so much...we are both walking in the light and helping to shine it!

Your blog is such a peaceful and beautiful space to spend a few minutes

If it isn't too off course for your blog, could you write about how to help a dog with the whines? Meaning specifically, a year old male mini-schnauzer who whines and cries loudly at any perceived slight? Jealousy issues I suspect, but heaven forbid if he can't be walked exactly when his sister is.

Leslie said...

Amen! I know that light house!
