towards the light

copper-trees02-webI don’t know about you but I do walk down the street and through the store looking to engage eyes with others and share a smile or hello. I’m finding more and more are either on the phone, looking at the phone or hanging their head to avoid everyone.

It was something I noticed years ago in the office hallways and see amplified in our techno world.

Distance and distraction that leaves others feeling less and less light in their lives.

Be the light! No matter who will or will not look. Someone is noticing.
Shine the light! You don’t know whose darkness will be dispelled.
Pray in advance for the LIGHT! God knows how to prepare hearts in advance so you can do your part as His vessel in every step you take.

Everything was created through him;
    nothing—not one thing!—
    came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
    and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
    the darkness couldn’t put it out.
John 1:3-5 MSG

  1. Judi,
    Thank you for this inspiration. I’m noticing more and more how many folks walk around, no matter where they are, distracted. Many on cell phones, or with ear buds. We’re losing meaningful contact with one another. We’re becoming even more isolated. Thanks for this post. It gives me fodder for a similar post on this topic. And it inspires me to seek out opportunities to be light to others I encounter every day.
