Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

light in the darkness

Recently I did some soul searching – motive checking – examination of why I do what I do. It seems that I tend to fill my days and nights full – at times even pushing the limits.
 
So why do I do what I do?
“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.” Matthew 5:16 (NASB)
 
light-shine

 

 
I want to live a life that shines for God in a world that so desperately needs Him.
 
Along time ago I was in an accident that should have taken my life. It was only by the grace of God that we all survived. I remember the week or so before the accident I was questioning many things and in a crisis of faith.
 
I was in some serious pain from the accident but that all dimmed in comparison to how God used that accident to give me a renewed thirst for more of Him, a hunger to live God’s way to the best of my ability, and a determination to let my light shine brightly.
 
As Dallas Holms sings
“Let my light shine in the night time.
Let it shine, all day through
Let it shine, shine for Jesus
Let it shine, shine on you.”
