A friend gave us this cool lamp with a dimmer on it. I was eager to plug it up in our bedroom only to find out that it would not turn on. I got upset and didn’t try to turn it on anymore that day. Days passed and I continued to try to get the light to work. I soon accepted that the lamp was broken. Almost four weeks later Spirit said, “Try the other plug”, as I was passing by the lamp. I tried the plug directly underneath the one that I had tried before. The light came on! I got hype and screamed waking my husband up. The whole time I had been trying to get the light to work on my own when all I needed to do was utilize the correct plug.
Often we give way to ego and become dependent solely on self. Ego influences you to try and take on life by yourself making your experiences more complicated than they need to be. It is true that you are a spiritual being and God has given you Divine Power. However, in order to maximize that power, you must be plugged into the correct Source. You may have been feeling broken lately. That is another trap of the ego, believing that you are inadequate. When white light shines through a prism, the white light is broken apart into the colors of the visible light spectrum. You are not broken, you are a reflection of the Greater Light. You simply need to stay plugged into the Ultimate Power Source. Then and only then are you able to turn your light on and shine the brightest. What will you do to get plugged into the Source today? Will you choose to be the light?
Matthew 5:13-16 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. “You are the light of the world. A town built 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 others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
