Psalm 119:105, Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Matthew 5:16, In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. There are so many verses in the bible about being a light in the darkness and it is so inspiring to me. Because my past was so full of darkness and coming to the light was such a huge change and I want to use that to inspire others. Every morning I pray God sends me someone who needs help and that we can be a light in their life in some way or another. One day I had my son with me and we were running late so we said a prayer in the car on the way to the bank. I had asked God to put someone in our path that morning, turning into the bank parking lot I noticed a friend of mine standing on the sidewalk. Pulling up to him I asked what he was up to and he told me he was having problems at home and got kicked out, he hadn’t had breakfast yet and was very hungry. We invited him to come with us and get something to eat so he hopped in the car. We all sat down to eat and he went on telling us of his problems and we all bowed our head in prayer. He decided to walk home so we said goodbye and he went on his way. My son turns to me and says,”Dad, God answered our prayer”. God did three things that day that we could plainly see. He gave strength to a lost soul, made my son see His light, and made my light stronger. Amen
