Every Good and Perfect Gift

“Do not err, my beloved brethren.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights,
with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth,
that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”
– James 1:16-18 KJV

“Every good gift”and “Every perfect gift.” You are every good gift, Jesus. You are every perfect gift because You are from above and cometh down from the Father of lights. You and Your Father are One. You are the Light of the world. Of His own will He begat You… born of a virgin… conceived of the Holy Ghost. Of His own will begat He us with the word of truth. The book of John says You are the Word, and have been the Word from the beginning. You also tell us in John that You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

How precious and humbling that Your Father
would make us a kind of His firstfruits.

Thank You, Father, for making us one of Your creatures. I am so grateful that You would allow me to be any part of anything to do with You and Your Son, and Your Holy Spirit. I am gladly blessed to be Your firstfruit, Your creature, Your child, Your image, Your servant, Your friend, Your vessel, Your daughter, Your temple… just to name a few of the many things Your word has told me You have made me or allowed me to be.
Most precious of all YOURS! ❤

I love You, Father God! ❤
I love You, Jesus Christ! ❤
I love You, Holy Spirit! ❤

img_0972-e1516061975934“Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory.
 Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory.
 Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory.
 Children of the Lord.”
Rise and Shine (the Arky, Arky Song), Children’s song

“Turn your light on. Turn your light on. It’s important that you shine, shine shine.
 Turn your light on. Turn your light on. It’s important that you shine, shine shine.”
Turn Your Light On, Children’s song

“This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
 This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
 This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
 Let it shine. Let it shine. Let it shine.”
This Little Light of Mine, lyrics by Harry Dixon Loes

How can I see the word Sunshine, especially as an award, and NOT think of these songs, Dear Lord. An award that is meant to shine light on this blog and give glory to the owner/author or the content therein. Yet it is all You! You gave me this blog, and the whispers that have created the words each time. I praise Your Holy name for shining glory on Your whispers, and giving glory that I can completely shine on You! Turning YOUR light on! I’m gonna let it shine as much as the Holy Spirit will allow! 🙂

“The sun comes up. It’s a new day dawning.
  It’s time to sing Your song again.
 Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me.
 Let me be singing when the evening comes.”
10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord), lyrics by Jonas Myrin / Matt Redman

And of course it brings to mind the more common song.

“You are my sunshine. You are my sunshine.
 You make me happy when skies are gray.
 You’ll never know dear how much I love you.
 Please don’t take my sunshine away.”
You Are My Sunshine, lyrics by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell
