Divine Design: Let your light shine…


You are the light of the world. Let your light shine out for all to see! ~ Matthew 5:14-16

Every month on the 9th, I try to share a project inspired by Scripture for a challenge at Splitcoaststampers called Divine Design.  All are welcome to participate. The only requirement is that your project contain a Bible verse. Most often I choose 6×6 cards that I display on a wooden stand in my stamp room.


I picked up a new Bible study book the other day called Annointed, Transformed, Redeemed, a Study of David.  It will be the fall women’s study at my church. As I leafed through the early pages, this verse jumped out from Matthew. “Let your light shine out for all to see!”


This lamp that hangs in my kitchen was an inspiration piece for the layout of the project. I can see this lamp from my workdesk, and I love to look at it even though it might not necessarily fit in with the rest of my kitchen. You know what? Even when it doesn’t fit, it’s light still shines. It lights meals and laughter, homework and bill paying, magazine browsing and Bible studying, friendship gatherings and long, lost sock matching. My family sits under this lamp in sad times and good times and all those in between. I pray we’re like this lamp, even with it’s off-center glass chimney. No matter the circumstance, I hope we still shine for Him.

If you missed my post last night, here’s a reminder to check out the Scripture Chicks Angel Wilde, Jami Bova, Nancy Morgan and Taylor VanBruggen. I {adore} these girls.
