“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 58:9b-10




“If you put an end to oppression,

to every gesture of contempt,

and to every evil word;

if you give food to the hungry

and satisfy those who are in need,

then the darkness around you will turn to the brightness of noon.”


– Isaiah 58:9b-10 (GNT)






In the true spirit of love and sacrifice,

Christians should not point fingers or back-bite or gossip,

but rather show neighbourly concern,

and provide for the needy.


When we do so,

the gloom and darkness of depression will seem like the sun at noon.

Positive attitudes and charitable actions

are the ways to shine.


God’s light is in every believer

– if only we would let it shine!






God of wisdom and love,
source of all good,
send your Spirit to teach me Your truth
and to guide my actions

that I may always love and give gladly in Your Name,

and that I will take Your light where there is darkness

and Your joy where there is sadness.

I ask this through my Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,

who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God,

for ever and ever. Amen..





Lord of wisdom and love, help me shine Your light.
