Be the light

Are you sick of living in a world where sin is glorified and purity is decried
Are you tired of seeing the evil succeed and the honest recede into the shadows?
Does the shallow obsessive preoccupation with meaningless reality shows fill you with sorrow?
Do you mourn the loss of innoence evident in a child's taunting gaze and weigh the screenplays filled with violence with dismay?
Are you moved to tears by the images of starving children and filled with rage over warlords recruiting children to commit atrocities?
Do you bemoan the pervasiveness of sexual promscuity in our society and wish for a simpler time where being a virgin wasn't seen as a crime?

Do not curse the darkness, light a candle - Chinese proverb
As a Christian it is easy to complain and describe in great detail the degradation of our society. It is second nature to gravitate towards other Christians and spend your time in a bubble of spiritual ecstasy but a candle in a lit room is useless, so let's step out and be a light in the darkness.

I can't stop a person from getting sexually assualted every 2 minutes in the US, keep someone from dying from hunger on this planet ever 3.6 seconds or end the conflict in Syria but I can help speed up Christ's return. He only comes when everyone in this generation has heard the gospel.

I will try to do what these words say and help get the word out, will you join mii?

The year is almost over.
I want October to count for something.
I want to be a light and offer refuge to those who don't have hope.

Sometimes when i think of the world it just gets me weary
But recently the HOLY SPIRIT has been saying that my
shield is not up
So what i am doing in this season is lifting up my shield of
faith....
