How Bright Are You?


Hatteras Lighthouse, Hatteras Island, North Carolina
(The largest lighthouse in North America.)

















~Are you shining brightly for God, today?

~How far does your light shine?

"Do everything readily and cheerfully-no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living GOD. Carry a light-giving Message into the night so I'll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You'll be living proof that I didn't go to all this work for nothing." Philippians 2:14-16 The Message

Let's shine brightly together, today! Join me in a pursuit to share GOD through loving actions and attitude from this day forward.

Seeking HIM,

Andrea

I love the idea of Storming the Heavens for a particular need. I have read some of the reasons you are Storming the Heavens and I join with you in beseeching aid from our loving Heavenly Father for those who need His help.

Your blog is awesome. I am now a follower and will be back as often as I can.

Great reminder! That would be awesome to be able to help others lost in the sea when they see that light shining ever so bright amid the severest storms. Have a blessed week sister. Take care.

Dearest Andrea,

That is my constant desire...to shine brightly for Him. May we all be receptive to His many blessings already bestowed upon us and may we be anxiously receptive to those that are stored up for us just waiting to be poured down upon all of us.

Yes...Let us shine brightly throughout the world to others as He continues to shine so brightly throughout our entire beings for all of us who know Him and live and breathe Him daily by reading His Word.

Love you so much,
Alleluiabelle

Great point, Andrea. I love lighthouses. There are some great ones in the Upper Peninisula in Michigan.

Andrea said...

Love that lighthouse!
When I was running the Shamrock Half we had to run between 2 of them. I pictured God and His light as I ran between them.
Thank you for sharing this!
Blessings
Andrea

I love the lighthouse..but you knew I would. Thanks for the update on Lisa...still praying. I have been a little out of touch this week...working overtime...but it is a blessing...allowing us to put a roof over our porch. However I am finding that 12 hour days are for the young girls!...Have a blessed Easter week

Oh so timely for me. Barbara from B His Girl and I have our radio show tomorrow.

Would love for you to consider calling in or joining the chat at 10am MST.

This says it all, Andrea! Our lives should be a living testimony to God's love. This reminds me of the song, "This Little Light of Mine". :-)

May my light shine brightly for the Lord!

Beautiful scripture verse! Yes, let us shine for Jesus.

Often we don't know how far God's light shines out from us. I hope it shines strong and bright and far. Great post.

Very good reminder Andrea, thank you.

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

It's a long, dark, stormy night out there...we really have to keep that light shining to bring the lost ones who can't find their way to safety, don't we? Great analogy, Andrea.

Have a great day!
