Becoming a Light Bearer

In Philippians, I read tonight about being a light bearer, and as soon as my eyes read those two words “Light Bearers” I knew this is what I wanted to be.

Light bearers

Go on little one,
let your light shine bright.
Go on, Child,
put on a good fight.

Do you even realise
that every fiber of you shine?
You are a small dot collection
and I Am your Line,

I will guide your path,
My Light will shine from your heart.
My child your life
will be heavenly art.

And lastly,
never hide the light within,
I want you to be the bearer
of what My joy can bring.

– A light bearer in training

I want to be a bearer of light. I want to roam the streets of this world shining brighter than the street lights at night and in the morning, I want to make the sun jealous.

So I decided I will make this my light year, starting tonight, I am going to move closer to my Creator dedicating the following 365 days to chase wholeheartedly after Him. I am going to study the Light in order to be able to a bearer thereof.

Now I am sitting here, wondering how, how am I going to do this? And whoops, into my head popped the answer. I am to constantly move. Like a heavenly body, I am not allowed to sit still.

The first thing I need to do is to teach myself to obey. My own will is thrown into the dark pit it originated from and starting this instant, I am going to grasp every situation where I get the opportunity to obey.

In my light year I am not allowed to complain or dispute, Paul says in Philippians, this will make me blameless and harmless. A trusty light bearer. Even I, being far away from holy, know you cannot trust a harmful person with Light.

Philippians 2:12-17

Lights in the World

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. 17 Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.


I will hold onto the Word of God with both hands and will let it be my only guide. Thus every morning I will pray that no outside source will get the chance to put out my light for the day. I am going to read my Bible and pray every day.

So this is the day my light year is born, let’s pray God turns it into a forest fire.

Are you joining me on my light year journey fellow Light Bearer?
