You Were Made to Shine

You were made to shine my children. Do not withhold your light from the world.

You have my light, my Spirit, within you. I gave you my light so that you could shine and be a light to others in their time of need.

Everyone needs a light in their darkest hour. When you withdraw or withhold your light from someone, you subject them to pain, anger, self hatred and isolation. At some point you will need someone else to shine their light for you. Imagine now, if they refused, if they did not share their light by showing they cared, and then think about how that would make you feel.

Like the sunrise bringing the world out of darkness, you too can bring hope to a person by shining your light on them. Giving of yourself when another is in need is the greatest gift you can give; a gift of love is a gift of light.

A simple phone call to check on someone could lift them out of the depths of despair. You have that power, that gift, that light within you my children, do not be afraid to use it.

You are the beacon, the light in someone’s storm. If you live by light, you may never even know you helped someone, that is truly a gift; unselfishly given unto the world, a light shone.

Never forget the power of love and light, after all my children, you were made to shine.
