You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16

God has placed treasures in each of us – unique physical and spiritual gifts. With these gifts, we have been called to glorify His name and draw people to Christ. Often we stifle our gifts because of fear. We fear failure, the opinions of people, and even God’s ability to transform our hearts.

“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” – Luke 1:45

In 2018, I turned 27 years old. I remember being 17 and daydreaming about what I wanted to accomplish over the next ten years. Needless to say, life did not work out completely as planned. There is a gap between what I imagined doing and my reality, but that’s okay!
