reflect and shine
I do. So I asked -
what have I to offer Lord to You and to the world?
I opened my journal and my heart to hear His reply:
Your willing heart and your availability are a gift to Me.
As you surrender and allow Me to do as I will, it matters not at all what you have for I Am able to use what I have, in you, through you.
It is your capacity to be empty.
To retain this gift you must release all pride.
Knowing it was Me Who stooped low, it was Me Who reached high.
Never claim a bit of the glory as your own.
Reflect and shine.
For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure.[a] This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. 2 Corinthians 4:6-7 NLT
