“v.14 You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. v.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. v.16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven.”

-Matthew 5: 14-16

Papa, I arose this morning eager to make use of every minute of this day, so I began my day with you. I willingly opened your book and asked you to guide my eyes and spirit to see all that you wanted me to see today. I heard you say-  “Matthew” so I turned there… I began to read, then I heard you say -“Jesus will teach you how live on purpose.” So I continued to read , then I came to these verses, and I felt your holy spirit rise up in me. I felt you stop me, and I knew this was your word for me.

Papa,  you know my desires -I want to shine! You have created me and called me to be a bright light that beams for all to see your beauty. You have destined me to be like that candle on its stand – lord ready me for my platform so that I may exalt your goodness and grace. Teach me Papa, I want to be all that you have designed me to be.

Grateful for you light and spirit that lives and shines thru me,

Love you papa,

Your daughter x0
