My Mission -Let There Be Light

Enjoy this humorous yet touching message by Patsy Clairmont - a godly Christian woman from Women of Faith who graciously mixes humor with a fantastic timely message that touches our hearts and spirits.

“Then God said, “Let there be light,” Genesis 1:3.
For years I had been looking down; my physical pain, emotional pain and illnesses were so great that I had been under the “juniper” tree for so long; wondering, Lord, will you ever use me again to minister to others? Then in July of 2008 the Lord answered my cries, He said, “Let there be Light”. I did not fully understand at that time what He meant or what He was going to accomplish through those words and through this broken woman before Him.

I obediently followed His instructions, and I began blogging In July 2008. Let there be Light!”
I could never have imagined how far that Light has gone over these past years. The doors of opportunity to minister are astounding and abundantly abounding!

The mission for this blog has always been and still is, to glorify the Lord my God in all I say or do. To be a worthy instrument of His Truth, Love, and Light to all who will hear and need encouragement through their daily life.

Psalm 18:28,29 "LORD, you have brought light to my life; my God, you light up my darkness. In your strength I can crush an army; with my God I can scale any wall. "

Whatever the stage of life you are in, please know that there is always hope, love and light to guide you through whatever you are going through at this time. Be the beacon of His great Light! Send forth the message of hope, faith, and love.

“Let there be Light!”
Are you ready when He calls you to be the Light?

hi sweet lady, my husband has gone to bed, I'll come visit in the morrow I must go.
Sweet dreams. Your loving kindness means a lot. I have posted some on the other blog, see my side bar. Perhaps in your ministry your eyes may see well to serve another . It is my hope that the obedience to speak will do just that.

What an awesome post! As someone who knows 3 ladies going through breast cancer right now, what an encouragement this video was to me. I LOVE Patsy Clairmont and I had never heard this particular session with her. What a powerful message to all of us! God knows ALL of our particular "situations" and He is in complete control! He is the Lifter Of Our Heads! Praise His name!
