Let there be light

It has been a few weeks since I have sat down to write. I have encountered an unreal amount of content over this time frame, but whenever I sit down to write, my mind empties and I sit there… contemplating what to write… and nothing makes it from my brain to my fingertips to the screen.

I started this blog with a title of “Blanked…” I changed it to “Let there be light” after finishing what you will see below. In some capacity, I wonder if when God uttered these words, he did not just mean the light from the sun… but the light that we have within us to share with others.

Here is what I want to say.

People are inherently good.

We all ultimately want the same things in this life and that is to be fully known, fully loved and an opportunity to be happy. The materialistic crap means nothing at the end of the day.

We have an opportunity each and every day to pour into relationships and the people that we come in contact with. We all have an opportunity to shine some light into someones darkness. We all have an opportunity to serve someone. We all have an opportunity to smile, laugh, hug and express our love and gratitude for those that are most important to us, and even those that we may not enjoy being around as much!

We are called to love. So in that vein, let go of yourself, let go of the crap you see on the news, let go of the negativity of whatever may be ailing you and look forward towards the hope of the day before you and take that next step towards impacting someone’s life in a positive way and I assure you that by the time this day is done, YOU will also feel better and be better to do it again tomorrow.

Love others. Be blessed.

  1. I don’t think people are inherently good – I believe they are inherently selfish and sinful. We gravitate and cling naturally to the “crap” around us (I do like that term, BTW). It’s only through God’s grace and HIs love that we begin to pry our fingers away from our own perspectives and begin to look through the lens of love, of grace, of humility, and of service. It’s when we reflect that Godly perspective that we begin to act “inherently good”. Then we can see the crap for what it really is – crap – and can let it go. it’s not easy because it’s not natural, but the blessings far outweigh!

  3. Just my opinion but to me the use of the word “crap” diminishes your message but I can’t think of another word to use except STUFF of which I have a LOT of and still LOVE and hang on to!! 🤪🤪🤪🤪 One day some great of this “crap”, “stuff”, “crappy stuff”…will be YOURS to do with whatever you want to!! 😀

    I guess what I mean is the use of the word “crap” in an inspirational message might be offensive to those of us who view their “stuff” as treasured belongings. ❤️❤️❤️
