“God will send us into dark places so we can make a difference. So our light will shine brightly.”
“The darker the situation, the brighter your light will shine.”
“God will bring people across your path that need your light.”
Prayer to ask God to help you to help others:
“God, this is where you have me right now.
I know my steps are ordered by the Lord.
You brought these people into my life.
So, God, my prayer is that my light will shine with greater intensity.
God, let me be a greater influence.
Let them see something in me that they want.”
“Talk is cheap. People are watching how you live.
What kind of example are you setting?”
“My Father (John Osteen) use to say “Don’t be a fire hose and try to knock people down. Just be a sprinkler.”
Just let your light shine. Be kind. Keep a smile on your face. Let people see your good works.
Remember, your actions speak louder than your words. Your life is your message.”
” People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. More people are reading your life than they are reading their bible. People see a sermon more than they hear a sermon. You don’t have to convict people of their sins.”
