For the last few mornings….I’ve put on my makeup in a dimly lit bathroom. I really can’t tell you how long it’s been that way. I just happened to notice it yesterday as I was squinting to see my reflection in the mirror. I guess you could say it happened gradually.

Mental note: Tell hubby to replace bulbs, soon.

Fast forward to this morning. I asked hubby if we had any bulbs to go in the light fixture and he quickly jumped to my rescue.

With two floodlight bulbs!

I don’t know about you….but that kind of lighting is a little overboard for doing your makeup and hair. I only had to stand under them a few more minutes but I pity the gal who has to be in there for any longer length of time. She may melt!

One more mental note: Buy bathroom fixture light bulbs, STAT!

This light situation reminds me of how easy it is to get lazy with my faith walk. Everytime I skip reading my Bible or having a quiet time with God, my light begins to dim. I don’t shine for Christ like I should. It happens gradually just like the light in the bathroom. Strong faith takes attention, just like changing out lightbulbs. It requires something of me.

Thank you, Lord for shining the spotlight on my laziness and reminding me…..I need you in order to shine bright for your kingdom!
