Make 'em wonder what you've got!!

If you listen to Christian radio, you've probably heard the song "Shine" by the Newsboys (click on my Playlist to the left if you want to hear it!). As I was listening to it in the van today, I thought, I'm going to make a concerted effort as I go through this coming week to SHINE for Jesus!!!!! Yes, indeedy, I should be doing that always, but I'm going to be particulary vigilant this week. I am going to carry a note with me that will include:

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1

Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. Daniel 12:3 NIV

And also the chorus to the "Shine" song:

Make 'em wonder what you've got
Make 'em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored
Let it shine before all men
Let 'em see good works, and then

Let 'em glorify the Lord!

Won't you shine with me this week? :)

Now this is a WORD in due season!

I want others that are looking in from the outside to wish and hunger and come for what I've got and what you've got!

Hi friend (which I knew your name), thank you for your warm words left on my Speak on it with Lisa blog and especially for your prayers for the Winters family and the man who committed the crime.

Welcome to the family of blogging. I look forward to getting to know you better. May the Lord lead and guide you as you share your heart for Him with us in Jesus Name. Amen.

Blessings and peace.

I suppose I could give my name, huh? :) I'm not sure why I feel weird having it out there. It's all new to me, I guess. I suppose as long as I don't give my date of birth and social security number, I should be fine, huh? LOL! ;)

I'm Dana!!

Shine on, sisters in Christ!!!!!!

Hey Dana,
I understand your hesitancy in giving out your name... I guess it's a sign of the ages...

Loved the song. I haven't heard it before and I loved it.

Thanks for sharing!
Hugs from Georgia,

Oh, dear. I have not been completely honest. Dana is my middle name. It's really been bothering me that I put it out there as my first. How embarrassing. But Dana will be my blogland name. I'm sorry for being a dork about this. I will add it in my About Me that it is not my "real" first name.

Shamefully and embarrassingly,
Dana :}
