Let your Light so Shine

I quote I read from a talk by Robert D. Hales a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostle of the LDS Church. I was touched by the idea of our constant need to bring light into our lives, both spiritual and emotional.

"This past winter I had the opportunity to learn more about my lungs. I became very aware that we cannot store oxygen. We cannot save the air we need to breathe, no matter how hard we try. Moment by moment, breath by breath, our lives are granted to us and are renewed. So it is with spiritual light. It must be renewed in us on a regular basis. We must generate it day by day, thought by thought, and with daily righteous action if we are to keep the darkness of the adversary away."

I think about how easy it is to allow my vision to be clouded by negativity which leads to hopelessness. I want to remember to always keep my mind focused on the great and wonderful things that are happening in my life, and keep my mind directed towards the eternities that I can see this moment within that context.
