I remember being the lone voice in high school to stand and say “No! We will not do this.” I remember seeing unethical practices at my first job and telling the boss “This is wrong”. It felt like standing on a cliff-edge of doom but hearing Jesus saying “Jump! I’ve got you.”

Check out Psalm 46 (

Following Jesus may take you to places that are dark and scary. So shine – after all, light belongs in dark places. Where He leads, He enables. That may mean some recharging time in the strong tower of his Word.

Hebrews 10:35 (




‘As for me, I look to the LORD for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemies! For though I fall, I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.’ (Micah 7:7-8

Would you let Micah’s words just light up your darkness a little today? I don’t know the kind of darkness you might be sitting in – but God does, and He won’t leave you in it. As clearly as you see these words on your screen, your great Rescuer sees right through your darkness, right through you, and right into the future He has planned for you.



Have you ever noticed how quickly things change?
From our families, friends, residents, governments and even ourselves. Change is inevitable.

The ever changing world also affects what happens inside of us. How we see the world largely affects how we move around in it, but when we remember that God is still sovereign and is still in control, we can have peace even when we encounter uncomfortable change.

Read Matthew 5:13-16 (

Jesus said we are to be the salt and light of the world. Therefore, it is important to see the world the way God sees it, so we can see how He plans on using us in it.



Read Matthew 5:13-14 here:

Jesus said ‘You are the salt of the earth…you are the light of the world. Salt and light.

We were not made to blend in, or to be camouflaged, or to be hidden away. We are invited to join in with the work God is doing in the world by being different, by standing out, even by standing up – for what is right, and good and true.

How will you add flavour to your world today?
How will you shine light in your space?
