As you walk through your day today, be mindful of those around you. Take time to listen to their stories and to look into their eyes, but also take time to be aware that there is inevitably more going on below the surface of their lives than you can possibly know.
We get so caught up in ourselves and our own concerns that we think it’s okay to vent about that one small thing in the teacher’s lounge or to finally say what aggravates us about that girl across the office. We lose sight of the greater purpose of why we are spending our days in these places.
Sister, can you remember when Jesus took hold of your life? Do you remember how much easier it was to breathe when He flipped on the lights in your darkness? Somebody is waited with bated breath just like you were. More than they need to hear what you think or how you feel about something insignificant today, they need what you have. They need the Light.
Lay your burdens down at the feet of your Father. Trust Him with all that. Then, be Jesus today. You just might be the conduit He uses to light up somebody’s whole world.
