Winsome Wednesday - Shine your Light!

Isa 58 v 11:  The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones;  You shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.



The verse before that read:
V10:  If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday.

This tells me that if I want to be like an oasis in the spiritual desert of the world, then I must reach out to others, encourage others, help others and my light (which comes from Christ) will shine and chase away the darkness!


My encouragement to you - "need encouragement?  need help?" - go and encourage, go and find someone who you can help - and God's light will shine into your circumstance.



Bloghop Time
Please join with me today for Winsome Wednesday to encourage and be encouraged.  No particular post required, just maybe, if you have time, encourage another blogger on the list and hopefully you too, will be encouraged.  Let the light of Christ shine through you.  Look forward to seeing you here!


God bless
Tracy

  2. This part really speaks to me right now, "The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones." I feel dry today and I am so glad that all I need to do is humbly submit before Him and I will be satisfied.

  13. You know it's in those moments when I feel bad or want to feel sorry for myself that I get the most blessing if I would just go help someone else. This world would be a better place is we all did that! Thanks for reminding me I need to go help someone!

  15. Hi Laura - don't worry about that, I'm just glad you're here :)

    Hi Allison - not sure what its supposed to be, but just glad you're here. :)

    Hi Kandi - yes, and amen. Without God, just darkness!

    Hi Carol - they are some of my favourite verses too. I've leant on them many times. thank the Lord for His word. I'll be over soon to visit with you

    Hi Dawn - its so true. I normally hide away from everyone when I'm feeling low, but when I do take that step and get out there and help or encourage someone else, I definitely have an attitude change.

    Hi Chelle - amen. God is great that way.

    Ladies, thank you for your comments. I truly appreciate each and every one.
    God bless

  18. I love that verse. I studied Isaiah last year and it was so powerful. The part of this verse that spoke to me was the promise to strengthen my bones! I'm going to write that where I can see it every day. I have several fractures in my leg from a car accident in August. I need literal strength in my bones! Thank you! Bless you

  19. Hi Patsy - Yes, God's ways are different and trying things His way takes faith, but the rewards are out of this world :)

    Hi Laurie - amen

    Hi Alyssa - Its one of my favourite scriptures and Alyssa, I will be lifting you up in prayer for those fractures, for God's healing and renewed strength

    God bless ladies and I truly appreciate your comments
