Be a Light

Be a Light  

My husband and I decided to take a big step of faith a few weeks ago.  We prayed a rainbow prayer.  We moved forward believing that God is able to do the impossible.

But, sometimes the pathway to a  miracle is filled with potholes and roadblocks.  The road is unpaved and seemingly un-safe.

So, I started to wonder, “Does God really want me to go this way?”  Surely, it would be smoother sailing if God had appointed this journey.  Maybe this is a “me” thing, and not a “God thing.”

On Monday, God wanted me to know without a doubt He had divinely called me to walk this road.  So, He sent me a very clear message.

I found my confirmation in the most unlikeliest of places.   I was sitting on a toilet in the ladies’ restroom at work.  I looked straight in front of me and saw  my sign.   It was literally hanging on the inside of the bathroom stall door staring back at me.

Be a Light

Be a light in the darkness.

Lord, did you really just tell me to “go for it” while I am sitting in a public restroom?

Indeed, He did.

Be a light, Lyli.  I will give you the fuel.

“…let your light shine before people,

so that they can see your good deeds

and give honor to your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:16, NET
