Jesus, be the light that others see when they look at me. Sometimes we get caught up thinking how are we going to spread God's word around the world, How can we work and stay active in the ministry. As i meditate on this i am grateful to get answer from Him who "reveal ALL truth when one seek in spirit and in truth". I look at the people around me and evaluate my relationship with each of them and realize i have a lot of work to do not with them but within me. Sometimes i like to hold on to what Jesus said "Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor." I mean this is so true and of course it is, is coming from God himself. I understand but i ask God to help me not prove anything but to live in love, compassion, understanding and patience be light not only to the world but to those who constantly have their eyes on me.
This past week one of my daughter good friend lost his father suddenly of a heart attack. I was touched not only because is horrible that this happened to this family but i saw how my daughter opened her heart and embrace this boy who was very distraught and showed him Jesus in her through love and compassion. I saw how strong she stood assured him that he will not only see his father again as God promise but to cast all feelings to the Lord and He will give him comfort. I am filled with joy to know and see how God is working on her tender little heart :)
So when the world says hate Jesus says love. When the world says grab Jesus says give. When the world says react Jesus says respond. When the world says revenge Jesus says forgive. Jesus is the way the truth and the life and in order to life one must shun all darkness and be a LIGHT to the world.
