Share the Light

What does your normal day look like? What is your normal routine? What are those once a week treats you allow yourself? Are there occasional breaks to your routine that make a day special? Have you thought about putting the light of Jesus into your routine?

Most of us have routines we are comfortable with. It may be a morning exercise routine or a morning quiet time or a routine time for dinner or a routine time for going to bed and waking up. Often, we have other routines we do not even think about, until someone points them out.

We all have heard of people who have an obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Most of us have OCD to some degree or another, even if just a small bit. Think about it. We may routinely eat a certain food for breakfast every morning. If we don’t eat that breakfast, our day can go sideways. Or we may always place our keys in a certain place and if we don’t one day, we can’t find them and become upset.

What if we inserted something positive into our routine? We could add reading a daily devotional each morning or reading Scripture or spending a little time in prayer or simply sitting quietly listening for God to speak. Perhaps we could ask Jesus to shed His light on us.

By adding Jesus into our lives and putting on His light, we can share it others, not to mention our day is better. Sharing His light with others can bring more of His light into us. It is amazing how sharing with someone else can be a boost to us. So, ask Jesus to shed His light on you and share it with someone else.

I pray we all decide to add a time with God into our routines. I pray we ask Jesus to shed His light on us. I pray each one of us will decide to share His light with others. Add God to your daily routine. Set aside time to spend with God. Ask Jesus to shed His light on you. Share Jesus’ light with others.

Romans 13:12 So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.
