After church today, I went to a grocery store that I frequent often. This time though, I wore my flowery dress, and I chose not to dim my light. Walking through neat aisles of packages, prices, and produce, I held my head high. I smiled because I felt free.
I noticed that when I carried myself confidently, radiance was inevitable.
Truthfully, I often avoid shining in the sun of my own skin. It attracts attention. It’s vulnerable.
On this Resurrection Day, this day when I felt radiant, I’m grateful. Beyond moments of shining to others, I always shine to God.
“but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.” (Psalm 139:12-14)
