Go Light Your World

As one of my family's holiday traditions, we went to Immanuel's Christmas Pageant. This years theme being "Follow the Light." Many of the songs sung tonight were about light and God being our light as we follow him as well as us being a light in our world. One of the songs sung tonight brought some tears to my eyes (or maybe the tears were from the smoke from the candles.). The song is called, "Go Light Your World." Some of the lyrics being:

"So Carry your candle, run to the darkness
Seek out the hopeless, confused and torn
Hold out your candle for all to see it
Take your candle, and go light your world"

This song reminded me of why I am going to Africa. And its not necessarily Africa that is important...God could have sent me anywhere. But I'm excited that I'm God is calling me to the darkness to seek out the hopeless, confused and torn. And I pray that I will be able to shine my light no matter where I am.

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men,that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
-Matthew 5:14-17
