No matter how you feel — you can always be a light!

John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

D. L. Moody told the story of a man who was crossing the Atlantic by ship. He was terribly seasick and confined to his cabin. One night he heard the cry "Man overboard!" But he felt that there was nothing he could do to help. Then he said to himself, "I can at least put my lantern in the porthole." He struggled to his feet and hung the light so it would shine out into the darkness.

The next day he learned that the person who was rescued said, "I was going down in the dark night for the last time when someone put a light in a porthole. As it shone on my hand, a sailor in a lifeboat grabbed it and pulled me in."

All of us have weaknesses — and times of weakness. The fact of the matter is, though, that weak or not, we need to muster up the strength to put our lights in our portholes for the sake of the dying and the lost among us. It's so tempting to sulk in our weaknesses, and stay in our cabins — but God expects more of us. He has given us the strength to do all things — even move mountains! There are so many people around us sinking in despair. God has chosen us to reach out and light up their lives!

Let's do something extraordinary for the Lord today. Be bold, speak up, let's get beyond our weaknesses!
