Won't You Stay? The Band is Playing...

As of last night, my current opera is in what we call "tech week" (or as some say "heck week."...) This week is when a show comes together in a completion sort of way; it also is when cast members grow together in unexpected ways. You depend on her to zip up your dress while your intro is playing; you ask him to review your waltz one more time; you see a true example of Christ...wait, what?
Who would've thought that one conversation held in the wings of backstage would affect me so much? She probably doesn't know the conviction her words brought me, but I'm so glad she spoke.
This young lady reminded me that we need to always be witnesses! We may be on great terms with God (or something?) but someone else might not be. We are called to be lights for His glory! How can we do that if we are only worried about ourselves and our personal faith walk? Personally, I know I could do better.
How about you? Do you think someone could tell you are a Christian by your actions and words?
I challenge you to take a step back and look at yourself with this new perspective.
Also, do not be afraid to speak up! You never know who will hear your words and be blessed. God favors the bold. Don't be lukewarm; be firm in the faith!
This is my challenge for myself and for you this week.

"This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine!!!"
