Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Shine Bright

Better is One Day
Blessings are beheld,

by the one who hears;

the truth of God’s word,

with wide open ears.

Beyond just hearing,

we too, must obey;

lay hold of the hope,

found through Spirit’s stay.

For love is not love,

if it’s held at bay;

it is only love,

when given away.

The light He has placed,

in believing hearts;

is meant to shine bright,

show others the start.

Let’s rise up and shine,

may His love flow through;

let hearts be open,

so they may see You.

“He replied, ‘Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” – (Luke 11:28)

“No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand so that those who come in may see the light.” – (Luke 11:33)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your Holy Spirit, who dwells in the hearts of all who believe. Please go before us and prepare every heart that will hear, and each voice that will speak. Grant us courage and strength to share the words You have placed on our hearts, as we celebrate and remember Anne today. Forgive me for my fear of using my voice, audibly, and please strengthen and steady my heart, mind, hands and voice, so that I might honor Aine and glorify You, through every word I speak. Let hearts that know You not, truly hear You calling them to come close and allow You in. May many be moved toward what matters most, and embrace the grace that You freely offer. Lord Jesus, be near to every heart that will hear. All glory to You, our Love and Light that leads us home. Amen.
