Radiating Light

May 18, 2010

We are co-creators with God.  God creates us.  God calls forth certain gifts in us.  We often focus on how God is working in our lives and how God is working in us. As we become aware of God’s work in our lives, we become aware of a light within us that is fueled at our core by God’s love. 

We cannot forget the importance of asking God where God needs us and what God needs us to do.  This is the essence of being a co-creator with God.  God invites.  We respond to God’s invitation.  We help God create and form the world by using our gifts, our knowledge, and our experiences.  This is how we let the light within us fueled by God’s love to shine for others to see.  We help do God’s work. 

Where does God need me to radiate the light of God’s love? 
How is God asking me to respond?
