SHINE! … By the Spirit™ with Tonya M. Evans

God’s Word, Your Light

For today’s SHINE post, I offer to you spiritual food to encourage you to let your light SHINE!

What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. Job 22:28

The Word doesn’t say “might shine,” “could shine,” or “should shine,” it says WILL SHINE … when YOU decide what shall be done. To me, this scripture says once our thoughts are in clear focus, God’s light will illuminate the path, the people and the resources needed to manifest. What we give our energy and attention to in thought and deed manifests. Good, bad or otherwise.

What are you giving your energy and attention to? If you don’t know, simply look around to see what is manifesting in your life. And as Les Brown says, “if you wanna keep getting what you’re getting keep doing what you’re doing.” And if not, make a different decision and allow the LIGHT to SHINE on your (new) ways!

In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

God through Spirit has endowed each of us with a spiritual light that connects us to God and to all of creation. Our ability to SHINE is not only a privilege but a responsibility. We are responsible for accepting the truth of who we are and whose we are and then for letting our light SHINE to fulfill God’s ultimate purpose through us that we LOVE ourselves, each other and GOD. It’s not about us and nurturing our own ego. Because as Wayne Dyer says, when we feed our own ego instead of blessing the world with our light, we EDGE GOD OUT (E.G.O.) And so we SHINE to fully express GOD in our lives and to encourage others to do the same.

Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.” Luke 11:36

Because of free will, we always have the option to dim our awesome glow. But this passage instructs us that only when we are FULL of light are we complete. And again, the choice is ours!

Today’s SHINE Meditation

The following quote has been mis-attributed to Nelson Mandela for years! But these words in fact are from Marianne Williamson. It is a reminder of the power of our light and our connection to others. LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!

As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.

Marianne Williamson
