A Weekend of Shining

Our town has a yearly, mile-long drive-through Christmas lighting display. It is absolutely spectacular, from beginning to end.

Millions of bulbs send out their light, shining in the the darkness. You can see it from across the highway, sparkling for all to see.

It reminds me of Scripture from Isaiah, after the Jews returned from captivity. They had been in darkness, and the Lord had rescued them.

Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. Isaiah 60:1-2

Imagine the light and joy that came from knowing the Lord and rejoicing in His goodness. You've probably experienced something similar in your own life, some very personal promise that God has fulfilled for you. That's the fountain of light that shines all over the heart and life of a victorious Christian woman.

Make this a weekend of shining. Reflect the Light, like all those millions of bulbs, back into a dark world. You may be the one glimpse of everlasting light some people will see this weekend. Share it far and wide!
