Lightning Bug

Let Your Light Shine for all to see

Firefly on a childs hand

The Lightning Bug is also known as the Firefly.

A sweet memory I have as a child is singing 🎵This Little Light of Mine🎵 in church. You may be familiar with the first verse:

This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine.
This little light of mine,
I’m going to let it shine,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Ev’ry day, ev’ry day,
Gonna let my little light shine.

 

For me, the Firefly is God’s little reminder of Bible verse John 8:12:

[ Jesus Is the Light of the World ] Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” John 8:12 NLT

 

Shine on!
