Start a Fire

Do you ever hear songs on the radio but you do not actually listen to them?  I do it all the time.  I hear the music but I do not pay much attention to the words.  Recently, I was listening to the radio while driving and “Start a Fire” by Unspoken came on.  As I began singing along, the words just hit me.

Start a fire in my soul,
Fan the flame and make it grow.
So there’s no doubt or denying.
Let it burn so brightly
That everyone around can see,
That it’s You, that it’s You that we need.
Start a fire in me.

When did we lose our fire?

As children, we learned “This Little Light of Mine.”

This little light of mine,
I’m gonna let it shine.
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.

Hide it under a bushel? No!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel? No!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel? No!
I’m gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Is Your Light Shining?

These songs have the same basic message, so we have learned this from an early age.  Is our light shining?  Do we share the love of God with people who come across our path?  What does this look like? Shining your light can look like kind words or actions to people we know or people we do not know.  Encourage those who are having difficulties.  Mow a neighbor’s lawn.  Babysit for a friend.  Of course, these do not have to be overtly “Christian” acts.  We shine our light by words and deeds.  We should be asking God to put in us a fire burns so brightly that our light shines for all to see.

This Little Light of Mine

How do you shine your light?
