called This little light of mine, it says this little light of mine I’m
going to let it shine, hide it under a bushel no I’m going to let it shine. In my life I never paid any
attention to the real meaning and the significance of this song.
I have been learning more everyday how important it is to let my LIGHT
5 This is what God the LORD says-he who created the heavens and stretched them
out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to
its people, and life to those who walk on it: 6 "I, the LORD, have called you
in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make
you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, 7 to open eyes
that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon
those who sit in darkness.
Christ is the Light who is in us and it is the LIGHT that we bring to people to
open eyes that are blinded from SEEing who they are and who God has called them
to be in Christ.
sent His only Son so that we can be free.
We will still have troubles in trials in this world but He has set us

pulled me to the side before I left and said I really needed to hear what you
said and then she told the other person with me that she didn’t know if God had
been even listening to her until He sent me there.
I was there to be a light to her in a very dark area she was living
in. I didn’t even know I was
shining at that moment to anyone.
When the LIGHT is shining in you those that are in the darkness will be
drawn to it.

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. 16 In the same way, let
your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your
Father in heaven.
Meditate on these scriptures and get up every morning and say I am the LIGHT and when you are faced with that person in traffic who about ran you off the road or the waitress who spills hot coffee in your lap just remember THIS LITTLE (LARGE) LIGHT OF MINE, I AM GOING TO LET IT SHINE....
