All my candles are hand painted using epoxy resin and a variety of alcohol inks, mica pigments, paint, glitter and more. I often use refurbished glass jars and vases. After the jar has been hand painted I pour in a custom candle. All my candles are scented with Cherry Blossom and Lavender. I love the combination of this scent. It is floral and calming. A lite candle produce a steady flame and a fragrant aroma.
The Bible is full of references about light and darkness. Jesus himself referred to himself as the light of the world.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life .” John 8:12
People often look to us for help, hope and healing. I am often reminded that I am not Jesus. I am not the source of light. Jesus is the light of the world. But as a follower of Jesus I attempt to walk with him so that I get to walk in his light and be the light of the world. All I can do is point people in the same direction. Follow after Jesus, for he is the light of the world. He will light your steps.
We often put people in this world on a pedestal but no person of worthy of that honor other than Jesus. For any person on a pedestal is a sinner like all the rest of us. Jesus is the only human ever in existence or ever to be in existence that is worthy to be our lamp on a stand. Yet Jesus called his followers to be the light of the world. So next time you light a candle. Be reminded that we as Christians should do the good works of the our Heavenly Father thus becoming like Christ Jesus and lighting up our world.
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
