Words to SPARK your Heart-Song from our co-founder Sherry Douglas.

Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Last weekend I had the privilege of camping with my husband, and one of our sons and his family. As I looked up into the night sky, the stars were shining brightly. I’m not savvy at finding constellations, but I am able to locate the Big Dipper. After admiring it for a few moments, I remembered being taught that if a straight line is drawn through the two outer stars of the cup of the Big Dipper, it points directly to the North Star. And there it was…the brightest star in the sky. I don’t know much about stars, but I doubt if the other stars compare themselves to the North Star. They all shine in the unique way each was made, each so beautiful. Stars are created to shine, to give light, and we are, too. 

If some of those stars had been covered by the clouds or not existed, the night would have been much darker. It’s the same in the world in which we live. Just like each star is unique and needed, the light of each one of you is unique and needed. Let’s not fall into the temptation of comparing ourselves and our lights to those of others. I hope you keep thinking about how you can let your light shine in simple ways – ways suited to you. It’s our uniqueness that makes the world a brighter, more beautiful place. 

In Matthew 5:15, Jesus says, “People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket. Instead, they set it on a lampstand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.” Like the stars and the lit lamps, give your light to those in your house and in your community. Don’t hold back…shine on! This is the Word of the Lord.
