Good evening! I hope that you had a grand day. My health continues to improve, and I am grateful! God is indeed good. 😀
Now back to the business at hand – daily gratitude and prayer. Here is a verse that the Lord placed on my heart today (I found this lovely image on the Bible app, by the way):
I know that I’ve posted on the theme of letting your light shine before, but guess what? I’m writing about it again, because that is what is in my spirit. When I reflect on the authority and security that we inherit as followers of Jesus, it is nearly staggering. Accordingly, I soon realized that there was no easy way for me to fully convey what I’m feeling and thinking through words alone, so I decided to try doing so through music.
I hope you’ll indulge me today by taking a moment to enjoy the music. May the music and lyrics be a blessing to you [kindly noting that the music videos are by TobyMac and Citizen Way **, and not by me]. Also, may they remind us how wide, deep, and vast God’s love is for all of His children!
[I’m not usually a fan of his, but I like the message of this song]
These two songs have become life anthems for me. Since the Holy Spirit dwells richly within me, the light of Christ can – and should – shine brightly for all the world to see; consequently, through my faith in Jesus, I am spiritually bulletproof.
Dear Lord, thank You for communicating these important truths to me so clearly through music. You know that since I have a musical background, I am often better able to experience and relate with You through music (singing it or simply listening to it), and I’m grateful for the way that Your Holy Spirit is working through these artists to touch the lives and hearts of so many people.
Thanks also for the reminder that each of us is tasked with the responsibility of letting our “lights shine bright, everywhere we go,” as the song says. Since You are for us, we are protected – bulletproof, spiritually – until such a time as You decide to call us home. After all,
In Your name I pray, Amen.
