To Shine

Hide it under a bushel--NO! I'm gonna let it shine...

Darkness breeds darkness in the absence of light.

To know the Light is to illuminate the night.

To be a light in places dark.

To shine with love, feeding hungry hearts.

To release the presence of the light within.

To emanate His presence for the glory of Him.

Shining for His honor, not for my own.

Shining because He’s made my body His home.

This little light of mine,

I’m gonna let it shine.

This little light of mine,

I’m gonna let it shine.

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

@ Michael-Milec, Lifegate, Always Exploring, and Teacherjoe52: Thank you all for your comments! I appreciate it. People taking the time to comment always "shines" in my book. :-) May you all be blessed that you may be a blessing to others and shine brilliantly as you live out your purpose upon this earth.
