Let Your Light Shine Art Review & Giveaway!

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16


Let your light shine. What does that mean to you? Is your light shining in your life? Maybe it’s in the smile you flash the checker who scans your groceries. Or in the $4 you handed the cashier to pay for the person’s coffee behind you today. It shines as you gently wipe yet another runny nose and whisper, “I love you” in a tender little ear. When you lend your ear to a friend whose struggle feels larger than life.

Your light shines through in the big stuff and even in small things. They’ll know we are Christians by our love and the light of Christ that shows through.

I love having reminders of scripture in my home.

Like this adorable ‘Let Your Light Shine’ piece from DaySpring.  Artist Dee Kasberger of Red Letter Words designed the Let It Shine wall art along with other ‘Urban Soul’ pieces. I love how she takes scripture and creates stunning art.

I hung it in my living room so that I would see it everyday. I need to be reminded everyday to let His light shine. When the floors need swept, again. When littles hurl their ferocious complaints, let your light shine. As sweet pink tutus swirl and prance, let your light shine.

We’re always on. Always being watched by others. It’s a scary burden to carry alone – especially when I know I don’t get it right a large percentage of the time – but if we ask for Christ to shine His light through us, we can do all things through Him. Baby steps eventually turn into leaps and bounds.

How can you shine your light today? Even in the dark mood that is looming over you now. Yes, I am talking to you sister. One act of kindness starts the crack of light and pretty soon that fog lifts and the day looks a whole lot better. Give it a shot. Let your light shine!

Here’s how I am going to start today, with a little blessing for you!

  1. I looked around at DaySpring and it would take me awhile to decide on something. There are way to many items to pick from, with Father’s Day coming up I would use the $20 to buy a gift for my husband. I would let our 6 children help pick put, since he is a Pastor it should be easy to find something for him.

  2. I follow you on facebook, I have for a few months. I jut added DaySpring on facebook

    I have been fans of yours and Daysprings but I did post on their wall that you sent me and have shared this one facebook. ( I hope you don’t mind but I shared your post about Matthew 5:16 before I saw this giveaway. I did give you credit for it by tagging you in my status update. Hope that is okay! I really enjoyed it and wanted to share.) Okay now back to the giveaway… this is what I really really want… This Is the Day the Lord Has Made – Bird Cage – Card Holder! I have five sons and they would slide down the slide or swing back and forth just singing this song. It was one of their favorites and so that is why this peice from Daysprings would mean so much to me. I’ll try to figure out the other ways to get entries.
    Thank you so very much for the chance at being able to purchase this.
    Have a Blessed Day,

  4. I voted for your blog on Circle of Moms! Good Luck!

  10. I would use the money toward buying the grandkids a Read and share Bible for Kids 😀

    I think one of the items I would use it on would be Joy Comes in the Morning – Christian Journal. That way I would have a special journal to record the blessing God brings my way, the ways He shows me He loves me, and what I have learned from trials He has tested me with.
    Thank you for this opportunity!
