Non-Fiction: Shine

[Key Word: ROASTED]

Everyone likes a good bonfire in the winter. Nothing beats roasted marshmallows in s’mores on a cold winter night.

(Okay, I know there are some people who don’t like bonfires. . .or s’mores. . .oof, that must be rough.)

The other day I was at a friends house roasting s’mores, and as I watched the fire dance I realised how powerful it was.

Power isn’t usually something used to describe fire, or light, but I found it fitting. With a single fire, the entire five foot radius was warmed. With a single light source, the whole backyard patio was lit.

My world, as was, was lit (literally) and warm. All because of a single fire.

That got me thinking (not much doesn’t). What if I’m a light? 

“”You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

A little light can make a lot of a difference. Have you ever struck a match in the dark? The bigger and thicker the darkness- the brighter the light shines.

A single light can make a world of difference.

I want to be a light. Whether at co’op, or church, or home, I want to shine in a way that could only be Jesus through me.

What does this look like, you ask? Unconditional love, endless joy, gentle patience— the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22).

Everyone has fuel and oxygen to burn. The question is- Will you let God light it?
