Donna Fargo Shines Her Light with Her Inspiring Song

If you want to inspire someone, you must have something in your life to inspire them. Normally, you can’t give what we don’t have. You must first focus on yourself and become a better person before you can reach out and do well for others. This is what Donna Fargo is talking about in her song.

Top-Performing Single of Donna Fargo, “You Can’t Be a Beacon If Your Light Don’t Shine”

In 1974, Fargo released her inspiring song “You Can’t Be a Beacon If Your Light Don’t Shine.” It became a top-performing song in the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and the Canadian country chart. Furthermore, it secured a spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary chart. Fargo first released the song as part of her album Miss Donna Fargo. After a few months, it was released as a single.

The Song’s Lesson

“You Can’t Be a Beacon If Your Light Don’t Shine” was penned by Marty Cooper. The song first teaches us to be the person we want to be for others. We can only inspire people if we ourselves are inspired by who we are. We can guide someone by being a light in their life if we are able to shine for ourselves.

You can’t be a beacon if your light don’t shine

God gave us a light within us. He gave us all the things we need. The only thing to do is to find out how to use it. If we are able to shine the light God gave us, we will be able to inspire people too. In addition, the never-ending saying about forgiveness was also mentioned. We must learn to forgive others, like how God does.

How can you ask forgiveness

When you don’t forgive
