Matthew 5:16 Jesus said, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
As I was seeking the Lord for today’s message, this is what came to me. And even after the scripture, I thought of a picture of a chandelier which I had taken a photograph of yesterday but as I turned to Photoshop to pull up the photo and crop it, the Lord caused me to see the simple picture of this rose. As I contemplated this photo, I felt the Lord was saying that He wanted me to use something ordinary whose beauty causes some to stop and take notice. Now I believe this is what He wants to say: “You may think you are just ordinary but this awesome God can cause you to be a light that shines in this dark world to draw people to Him.” The key, I believe is to live your life in His presence and He will do the rest.
