Shine Ministry
"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
-Matthew 5:14-16

I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found
By Dena M. Hall

I Once Was Lost But Now Am Found
The words from that song ring true
But being lost doesn't just happen once
It can happen every day, too
We get caught up in our jobs and lives
There are so many distractions each day
We can also get caught up in serving the Lord
And can get separated in another way
We can spend so much time trying to “live right”
Always in study and prayer
Wanting to go out and save the world
That we don't see the real need right there
And it is easy to seek redemption
When you are guilty of sin
But those who believe must also do it
Even if they feel the Spirit within
So we must look to the Lord
Begging for forgiveness once more
To have a right relationship with Him
And know the joy of being restored
Joshua 5:9-12; Psalm 32; II Corinthians 5:16-21;
Luke 15: 1-3, 11b-32
