For He sows seeds of light within His lovers, and seeds of joy burst forth for the lovers of God! Psalm 97:11 TPT
Have you ever wondered if people truly see Jesus in you? I have. Let me share an incident that happened 6 years ago on a typical day at work.
An elderly man walked in to ask if we took his insurance. When we finished, he walked to the door, turned and looked back and said, “God Bless you, in Jesus Name, because we all need His blessing on our lives.” To which I responded, “The same to you and you’re correct, we all need Him in our lives and because of that we are blessed.”
The phone got busy, several patients came and went and as I resumed making up new charts, I got to thinking, Lord, can people tell I’m a Christian? Does my light shine bright? As I seek You with all my heart, do You light me?
A little while later, two more patients arrived and went back to start their routines. The wife of one sat alone in the waiting room and I greeted her, asking how she was. She looked at me and said, “I need apologize to you. The other day when I was here, you were on the phone talking quietly and I was eavesdropping on a conversation you were having. You were reminding someone of who lives inside of them and what a difference He makes in their lives.
“You see, I lost two babies a long time ago and God took me through that, but I had forgotten until you reminded me. I just wanted to thank you, I prayed for the first time in 20 years and it felt good.”
How sweet of the Lord to quickly answer the questions of our heart. How precious that His seeds of light grow with each moment we spend in His presence.
“And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light. So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:15-16 TPT
Until Tomorrow-Shine on!
