You will be like a beautiful crown [crown of majesty/glory] in the Lord’s hand, like a king’s crown [royal diadem] in your God’s hand.Isaiah 62:3 (EXB)
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV)
Is God’s glory visible in me? For that is how I am meant to be seen. So often I hide in my doubts and depression, but Jesus didn’t die for me to continue there. All of us who know Christ have Holy Spirit living and working in us. Our lives should sing, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.”
King of kings,
You hold me in your hand,
You see me as a crown of your glory.
You lift me up to be seen,
To be visible.
Help me to be light
In this dark world.
