Shine

God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” – Genesis 1:14-15 NIV
 
Some people light up a room. I know Christians who reflect Your radiance everywhere they go. Lord, I want to shine like that. Show me how to give off Your light. My faith needs to be polished to a sheen so that it sparkles and reflects Your face. Guide me into action, Lord. Don’t let me fall into a dark pit of apathy and stay there. The further I distance myself from Your light, the less likely I am to be reignited in my passion for Your will. I want my hope in You to give light to others. Help me shine, Lord! Amen.
