The presence of you…

“Every place you enter into should be better because you are there.” W. Floyd

Seeing the quote above may make us feel better about ourselves and we should feel great about ourselves! We are pretty wonderful in every way! However, the statement above isn’t about us at all, it’s about the light within us:

We are called into certain places and spaces because our light is needed! And that light comes from God through Jesus Christ by way of the Holy Spirit. You, my friend, are a light that must not be hidden! It is the light that dwells within you that the world needs to see Christ!

You may wonder why you are working alongside people with issues or just downright mean folks-it’s your light that is needed. Maybe you are in a profession that consistently connects you to hurting people-they need your light. Perhaps you find yourself encountering the same homeless person every day as you run errands-they need your light!

The presence of you as a blood washed, born again believer, can point the lost and hurting to Christ Jesus! Are you letting your light shine? Are you being kind? Do you whisper a prayer for a person? Do you choose joy? Are you showing love?

Your deeds will draw others to our Father in Heaven! So don’t let anyone tell you that you don’t matter! Don’t let anyone tell you that what you do, doesn’t matter! Don’t let anyone discredit your presence! Your presence matters to a dying world!

The Lord has placed you at your job, in your family, and at that specific grocery store for such a time as this! The presence of you makes a place better because of the light within you!

So shine, my sister! Be bright! Show love! Exude joy! Choose to be kind! Pray those bold prayers! Be grateful and thankful! You an ambassador for Jesus Christ, the presence of you makes any space or place better because He is within you!

Make this your personal mission as you go on your way: “This little light of mine, Im gonna let it shine”!

Peace and Blessings

  1. Thanks be to God my sister for this post which encourages me to let my light shine out for all to see. Sometimes it’s so easy to get lost in the darkness we forget that the light of Jesus shines within us. Thank you for this blessed reminder.
