mondays and our inmost being           Proverbs 20: 27

The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one's inmost being.  Proverbs 20:27

I have shared with you over the last few weeks how God is the Light in the darkness who gives us His light so that we can live as a child of the light.   Similarly, Proverbs tells us that our human spirit lights our inmost being. So Children of the light, just  what is the current make up our "inmost being" ? Is it Light-filled?    Is it joyful because it is Light-filled?  Or is it sharing Light-space with a mental-weariness due to virus deaths, virus limitations, and virus fears for the future?  

The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord that sheds light on one's inmost being.  Proverbs 20:27

In spite of Covid 19 or even because of it, I desire to be that bright shining light for the Lord.   To do so I must refuse virus-weariness.  I will begin by removing my dimmer switch.  I will refuse to retreat and escape through fiction novels, junk food,TV, and lack of motivation.   Instead, I will dig into actively pursuing life.  For me that means increasing my Bible and prayer time each morning, walking consistently for exercise, and finding ways to bless others without leaving my home.  My inmost being as a child of Light cannot shine if I am stuck in virus-fatigue.  How about you?  Do you have a virus-dimmer-switch to remove as well?   My prayers join yours for success.

            Jesus said, " I have come into the world as a light, so

     that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. John 12;46

Let's refuse to allow any virus-weariness to dim our Light and wrap us in darkness.  Let's instead become energized and enlightened by the Light of our Lord.

seeking with you to clean up the dark corners of our Spirits so we shine with His Light, susie
