I am a city set on a hill, I will not be hidden! I am a royal diadem, treasured and valued. Declare so friends!
The enemy of your shine and mine, have been going to and fro, throwing obstacles here and there to deter us, hoping to cover up our glow, make us self-conscious and deceive us that our shine is blocking others glow. So we taper it down a little, and then a little until we don’t even recognize ourselves.
Kick that thought out of your mind. The thought that you may be casting a shadow on another, minimizing yourself in other to be “normal”, to fit in. Get it straight, treasures are not normal, you are not meant to fit in, you are meant to stand out. Treasures, jewels are worn on occasion for all to see! That is who you are! You carry the radiant glory and presence of God.
You are not normal, you are uniquely created to be who you are for every occasion! A light in the dark! Oh, how you shine even in those dark places! In the desert sun with a torn garment, under the element without covering, yet regal, glowing, and radiant! Moses, Joseph, Esther, Ruth, …………., Jessica, Amanda, Lindsey, Lisa, Beth, Avril, Martha, Mary, Janet, Irene, Deborah, Adenike, Ola, Olu, Seun, Abigail, Morgan, Joan, Miriam,……… Josephine! Put in your name! Arise shine for your light has come!
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
