You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.
Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16

    Oh, I love this picture … I am so longing to get back to the beach for a solitary autumn walk. Those times are, hands down, the best!

    Til then, my heart is encouraged

    God is so faithful, He never, ever lets us go!

    Blessed Sabbath, dear incourage friends …

    I am preparing for what may be the most painful end of a journey in my life. I have prayed for help in this time of trouble…I have questioned if God has heard me…or even cared. I thin remember the words; “Christ in you, the Hope of Glory, the Mystery revealed.” This time I must believe in Him and that I will give up my thoughts of what should or should not be just and right…and allow His Spirit to shine through me…no matter what the consequence may be. Perhaps, then I will be a living manifestation of my faith in HIM.

    I love this scripture too, but not this version.
    Ye are the alight of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

    15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

    16 Let your alight so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (KJV)

    A city is so much bigger than a town, i know i used to live in a town but now i live in a city. Again a bushel holds 8 gallons whereas a bowl just seems so small. We are the light of the world it is up to us to share the glory of the Father who is in heaven.

    Where is the photograph taken it’s lovely?
