June Scripture Writing Plan: Light

Happy almost June sweet friends!

The scripture writing plan this month is over
something we are all called to be: Light
True confession: There are days when I wake up a giant grump and can barely stand myself. I know I'm called to be a light for Jesus but on those days, I truthfully want to wallow in my crankiness and forget the things God calls me to do- like be a light for Him. I must remind myself every single day (especially on those cranky pant days) that I am called to do so, regardless of...
  • how many things are on my to-do list
  • how tired or scared or anxious I am
  • how many cranky pants people I encounter
  • how many struggles & problems I have currently in my life
  • how people treat me
  • how many things don't go my way today (because things WILL go wrong, we can count on it!)
  • how tired, frustrated, or overwhelmed I am
  • how many things/people I am worried about right now
Friends, we are called to be a light-bearer for Him, REGARDLESS of the circumstances going on in our lives. We are called to be a light- NO MATTER WHAT. Matthew 5:16  says... 
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." NIV

If you are in a dark room, you know it doesn't take much light to make a huge difference (that little sliver of light between the curtains in a dark hotel room can drive you batty!). In a world of darkness it only takes us shining a tiny bit to have a huge impact. How? We take IN the Light through time reading and studying God’s word, and shine OUT the light by loving others, sharing the Gospel with them, and using the amazing gifts and opportunities God has gifted us with. When we do, His light will pour through us in powerful, brilliant ways that can change the world. 

My prayer is that as you write these verses this month you are daily reminded that you are called to be a light- regardless of your feelings and circumstances. I pray that they remind you to shine brightly to every single person you encounter and remind them that you are the ONLY hope in this dark, scary world. 

FYI: I made the plan 31 days and plan to do that with
all topical plans in the future so that they can be done any month-
not just the month I write them for.
