“Arise and shine, for your light has come.” Isaiah 60:1
“Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life.” Philippians 2:15-16
Hello LRCA moms! I am so excited about the theme for our 2014-2015 school year! My youngest came home today singing “Rise and Shine and give God the glory!” These verses have really hit home for me as I found myself getting discouraged at the seemly increasing hardness of men’s hearts. The good news for us as believers is that the darker the world gets, the brighter we shine! Now is the time when we can have a huge impact on our world. The dark gets darker and the light gets brighter!
The key for shining is seen at the end of the two verses above:
- KNOW that your light has come! 2. HOLD firmly to the WORD of life!
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it…. the true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.” John 1:1-4; 9
Jesus is the Light and the Word. When we focus on what he has done for us and hold firmly to his promises the darkness will not overcome!
That being said, I am looking for volunteers to join me in praying for our school. We meet once a month as a group to study the Word and then pray the Word. I will also send out an email once a week with prayers to pray for our children or a specific class. We are looking for mom’s to pray from pre-school through high school. Some of you expressed to me your concern with praying out loud. I wanted to let everyone know that you will never have to pray out loud in front of people if you don’t want to.

LORD, my prayer is that we at LRCA (administration, teachers, staff, children, and families) will fix our eyes on you so that we may be filled with your light and then shine like stars in our world! I pray this in Jesus name, Amen.
