Do you know anyone who consistently lights up the room like a ray of sunshine? One day in court right after an adoption hearing, the little guy who had been adopted jumped into my lap, wrapped me in a big bear hug and laid a big, juicy kiss on my cheek. As he embraced me, I could see the security of love shining in his big blue eyes—like a ray of sunshine lighting up the entire courtroom. Everyone who saw him wanted to soak up that sunshine! He was loved—and it showed.

It made me think. If the love of his parents could make him shine like that—how much more should my perfect Father’s love make me shine?

God gives us His love, and we can light up the world with that love!

God said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” and He “has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” (2 Corinthians 4:6) As children of God, have the opportunity each day to reflect HIS rare and beautiful brightness.


The Bible says we must be wise. “And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky above; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” (Daniel 12:3)

If we are unwisely choosing to fill our lives with darkness, we cannot walk in God’s light. In a world of darkness, it is easy to allow the clouds of despairing darkness to block God’s light within our life. But God is more powerful than darkness, and when we choose Him—instead of darkness—we are filled with His light. When God’s light fills our life, we are a ray of SONshine!
