Photo for Thought + 5 Inspiring People Worth Following



Another Monday morning.

I’m thankful that I actually don’t dread Mondays at this point. Of course I don’t really want to wake up, but I enjoy the work i get to go to and the people with whom I spend my days.

I’m trying really hard not to take that for granted. I know it’s not all that common.

I came back to this city to be light. I came here once before not knowing how much darkness lived here. I left, but I couldn’t forget how much this place needed light. So I came back.

Different this time. I wanted to get out of my comfort zone. Spend each day surrounded by people who didn’t know Jesus but needed Him.

So I stepped out of ministry. But actually I stepped into it. More than ever before. Here is the most intentional I think I’ve ever been. More aware of the darkness. More conscious to speak light. Hope. Love. To be those things in my everyday.

But still sometimes I forget. Sometimes life gets busy and the to do list grows and my day to day becomes about tasks and a job to be done.

And then I am thankful for simple-not so subtle-reminders.

At the bust stop. As I begin another day of my everyday.

It doesn’t make sense there by the way. The phrase. I suppose that’s why I did a double take. “Be the light,” at the bottom of a bus schedule. I can’t explain that.

But there it was. Bold and glaring at me. Reminding me of what it is I am to do here.

Be the Light.
