Tonight….as soon as the sun goes down, little “witches” and “ghosts” and “zombies” will be flooding our streets and even showing up on our door steps! What do we do? Turn off the lights and pretend we’re not home! How do we hide from those scary little princesses, superheroes, and Dora the Explorers?
Wait….how about we don’t! What if we were to let our light shine!
In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father. – Matthew 5:16
THIS is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.
– Psalm 118:24
The Bible doesn’t say that God created everyday EXCEPT October 31st. So why are Christians dreading this day and calling it the day of evil? We have allowed the enemy to claim a day as HIS by giving it over to him! I say it’s time to take it back!
My family has always celebrated October 31st by putting our Christmas tree up! This year, we decided to put it up early so that we can be outside in our front yard blessing all those little goblins that show up! I’m getting so excited just thinking about it! Our house will be shining! We will have our Christmas inflatables set up, games for the kids to play, candy, a snow machine and a prayer box!
We will be praying that each kid and parent walks away feeling the love of Jesus!
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” – Matthew 19:14
The Lord is faithful; He will strengthen you and guard you from the evil one. – 2 Thessalonians 3:3
