Shine Your Light

Matthew 5:16 (NIV) ~ 16ย In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Thereโ€™s a light inside all of us.

Too many people squint and turn away from the light. Let your eyes adjust and bathe in the radiance.

There are times when we dim our light to let others shine. In a world that may seem off-skewed at times, so many people are afraid to speak up for fear of what others have to say or think about them.

Because we are spiritual beings having a human experience, we need to determine when and how our spiritual light is being filtered or blocked. We can work from the outside inward, but our truth is our light, not our darkness is what frightens us the most. As Marianne Williamson says “We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

We are the only ones with the power to dim our own lights, and as we clear away the layers we can begin to feel the warmth of our light shining once again.

We control how brightly our light shines. Why don’t we maximize our full potential?
