Jesus bids us, Shine!

Jesus bids us shine
With a pure, clear light,
Like a little candle
Burning in the night.
In this world of darkness
We must shine-
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine,
First of all for Him;
Well He sees and knows it,
If our light grows dim.
He looks down from Heaven
To see us shine-
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.

Jesus bids us shine,
Then, for all around;
Many kinds of darkness
In the world are found-
Sin and want and sorrow;
So we must shine-
You in your small corner,
And I in mine.
~Susan B. Warner

I love this song!  The boys sing it almost every day during Bible time...and I sing it right along with them. :)  It reminds me, in a very simple way, that no matter where my dreams may be to go one day, Jesus desires me to shine right where my feet are at the moment. 
If we all shine in our spots where the awesome God we serve places us, then His light will fill the dark places.  His message will be broadcast.  He will receive the glory due Him.
If you are looking for your calling in life...looking for a purpose...here it is:  Shine!
