This Little Light of Mine

This morning as I was dropping my daughter off at school, the Lord prompted me to stay and worship. I hesitated at first, I went back to my car to leave. But I could not leave, the prompting was so strong, I got back out of the car and sat in the sanctuary. They had a special guesst singer today Melanie Carroll check her out here. She is on our worship team at church too. It was such a blessing, the Lord ministred to my heart this morning. And the last song she sang was this song above.  It reminded me of the importance of spreading the gospel, here’s her lyrics:
There’s a little flame inside us all
Some shine bright
Some shine small
The rains will come
And the waters rise
But don’t you ever lose your light


In this life you will know
Love and pain
Joy and sorrow
So when it hurts
When times get hard
Don’t forget who’s child you are


This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m Gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine


May you live each day
With no regret
Make the most of every chance you get
Let your eyes get wide
When you look at the stars
With the same sense of wonder as a child’s heart


With the ones you love
Treasure the time
And for those who are gone
Keep the memories alive


Hold on to your dreams
Don’t ever let go
There’s a fire inside you
Burning with hope


This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine


There will be days when you wanna give up
When clouds settle in
But after the rain comes the sun
Don’t you ever forget
Don’t forget
Don’t, don’t forget


One day there will be no more pain
And we will finally see Jesus’ face
So until then I’m gonna try
To brave the dark
And let my little light shine


This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine


This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Gonna let it shine
Oh, shine
Gonna let it shine
There’s a little light inside us all

In Matthew it says…..
 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them.  When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.  And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
Matthew 28:16-20
God has not called me to missions-out of the country, but He definitely has called me to reach those around me, at home, in my neighborhood, at work, at church, the stores, the park, the lost. Everywhere you go preach the gospel, as the Lord leads you. Be that shining light, that example. If you notice through out the new testament….Jesus reached those who were in dire need of a Savior. He sat with the tax collectors, and prostitutes…. He ministered to those that no one else would talk to. He knew that He would get criticized for it, but it didn’t matter to Him.  He was furthering God’s kingdom. I think that we are not to just to stay comfy in our comfort zones, but to step out from our comfort zones and reach those who no one else will talk to.
Recently I’ve had someone, close to me, who turned themselves in to a rehab center, and another person who tried to commit suicide. After hearing this and listening to this song, it rocked my heart. The time is near…we are living in the end times. We need to reach as many people to the Lord as we can and are capable of. Listen to those promptings the Lord gives you..obey His voice. I will be praying for each person that reads this blog and I pray that it will encourage you to reach just one person today. Pray and ask the Lord to reveal to you who that person maybe. You just never know what blessings He has in store for you today.
God Bless you,
Adrienne
