Are You A Lighthouse?



Jesus said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life."
John 8:12

I have a passion for lighthouses. There is something very intriguing about them. As a child, growing up around the ocean, I was enamored by the stories of lighthouses and how they helped guide the sailors and their ships through treacherous waters to safety.


I have a very dear friend that has been a lighthouse to me for some years now. And the past several weeks he has been on my heart. I have really felt that I owe him my life has he guided me through treacherous waters in a difficult time in my life. His beaming light shown in my life, giving me a path to follow where I would experience God's grace, love and mercy as never before.


When we are in troubled waters, we can experience peace, strength, and guidance in knowing that our Papa is there, wanting to show us the way. When we see a lighthouse beacon cast its wide circle of light, it can remind us of God's radiant love that surrounds and embraces us. God invites us into the light that leads to everlasting life.


As Christians, we can be a lighthouse to those traveling through troubled waters.


Are you a beacon of light for someone now?


12 little hearts from you...:

Connie, I just came to your blog for the 1st time and what do I see but Lighthouses, and a post about being a Lighthouse! My whole family loves lighthouses! We don't live by an ocean, but by inland oceans and we love to visit the Lighthouse around them. We attend a church called Lighthouse Community Church, where I am Director of Children's Ministries. I hope and pray that I am being a Lighthouse to my family, those children, their parents and beyond! Thanks for the great post! P.S. You may be interested to know I was mistaken for Sandi Patti at our Christmas Program. Some parents were very excited for a little bit! Too bad I can't sing like her to. I actually blogged about it a few weeks ago! Sorry to go on so!

I love lighthouses. I collected them for years--and every one else collected them for me too.:) Soon I had to say--I don't collect them anymore.
They have a draw for me too. At first I thought it was the solitude it represented. But then I realized it was the life saving potential of them. Did you know that each light house has its own light pattern. That is how sailors knew them apart.
It reminds me of the fact that God made us all different and we each have our own individual light.And if we allow sin to cloud the lens--how sad for the lost around us!
Trying to stay out of the way so that the Holy Spirit can keep the light shinning. :)
