Seeing Jesus In You

Let me first say, I will at some point remove the Christmas candle from the top of my blog. Just haven't found anything I like yet. What could be better than letting my light shine for Jesus.

That brings me to what I've been thinking about. Does your light shine for Jesus ALL the time. What are you like when you first wake up? Does your family see Jesus in you or do they see the grumpy don't bother me till I had a shower and my coffee. What about at work, if we asked the people at your place of employment do they see Jesus in you, what do you think they would say? If you at home during the day and unexpected guest showed up would they see Jesus in you? At the end of a busy day and you know you need to quick run to the store or there will be no milk for breakfast and the check out line is long, will the people see Jesus in you?

I doubt anyone answered yes to ever one of these but if you did good for you.
Why do we make it so hard for people to see Jesus in us? All we need to do is seek the Lord daily and though the Holy Spirit he will be overflowing though us.

John 4:14 Jesus is talking to the women at the well.
whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

We do need to let our light shine all the time. Yesterday, when I got stuck in a Wal Mart line for 20 minutes because the cashier didn't know how to do something, I really had to pray for the Lord's strength to keep me from showing the irritation I was feeling!

Bless your heart Sandi! Thank you for the reminder :) Sometimes we really need to be reminded, especially with our own families :)

It has been hard lately--but He is cleaning me out so that others may see His light. Yes, even at home. ;)

I use to be back at the "don't talk to me until I have had my morning coffee". I have found a solution that helps me in that area. I make sure to set my alarm and rise 2 hours before the rest of my family. It gives me quiet time with the Lord, my coffee, and time to prepare myself so that the love of Christ can flow out on my family and not a bunch of grumblies. ((Hugs))
