30 Days Of Gratitude..Day 9… Shine Shine Shine ☀️

Even amongst the giants one can stand out. We are all unique and have something special to share. Don’t be dwarfed. Stand tall, stand proud, and let your Inner Light Shine.” ~Linda~

This photograph presented itself to me early one fall morning. I loved how the light seemed to search out and find the smaller of the trees. And once it was given it’s ‘spotlight’, it totally lit up the forest. I could almost hear it saying “I may not be as big as you other trees…yet, but I sure do have something to offer. Now give me room ’cause I’ve got some growing and shining to do!”

I think we all have felt ‘small’ at some time in our lives, I know I have. Low self esteem and no self confidence has a way of doing that to a person. It took me a long time to really wrap my head around the fact that I was giving control of how I felt and was feeling to others. Once I figured that the only One who matter was God, there was no turning back. Shine On!

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

30 Days Of Gratitude… Day 7 God’s Word

Day 7…I Am Thankful and Grateful for my love of books and reading. Today I am lost ( Actually Found..in God’s Word.)

Jon 2:2 – saying,
“I called out to the LORD, out of my distress,
and he answered me;
out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
and you heard my voice.

There are four things said about the Word of God. It is alive, “All Scripture is God-breathed.” It is powerful. “It is powerful to convict; powerful to convert; powerful to transform; powerful to revolutionize.” It is surgical, “sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” It is victorious, “There is no creature that is not manifest before Him, for all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Hebrews 4:12-13)

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. ( John 17:17)
