Shine!

Arise, shine, for your Light has come
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Isaiah 60:1

If I spend time basking in the light of God’s love
He will send people to me that need an encouraging word.

Once I was shopping at the Good Will second hand store for a bunny rabbit to place on my son’s grave at Easter. Another lady was searching through the same shelf. She asked what I was looking for and she kept handing me fluffy bunnies. I told her, “Thanks, but I am looking for something sturdy that will hold up in the weather to go on my child’s grave.” Her eyes widened with surprise as she replied that she was also choosing something for her infant son’s grave. She had recently given birth to a baby who only lived a few hours.

She turned and looked me in the eyes and asked, “How can I know for sure that I will see him again in Heaven?” I began to quote Bible verses to her and she said that she had never read the Bible. God gave me an opportunity to assure her of His love, and to help her get started reading the world’s greatest Love Story in the gospel of John.

Smith Wigglesworth prophesied that a time would come when people are so hungry for God that, before we say a word, people will come up to us and ask us how to know Jesus.

Get ready to be a glow-in-the-dark Christian.

    So sorry for your loss, I can’t even imagine. I do know that our God has a plan for all things, big and small. Your story can help many, I feel sure.
    Thank you for your post today… I need to work on my glow because I believe those hungry people are right around the corner.
    Have a blessed Saturday.
