Arise and Shine

 

Arise and shine
for I have come
to awaken you
to what’s true

from the darkness
into My light
glory covers
all I do.

You establish my glory.

“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth. And deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you.” Isaiah 60:1,2 NKJV

Your Light Will Dawn

 

You will be a light
in the darkness
that I guide
continually

an offering to
the poor
and for the
afflicted’s needs.

My guidance is established by You.

“If you take away the yoke from your midst, the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, if you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday. The LORD will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones; you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.” Isaiah 58:9,10,11 NKJV

In Darkness

 

When you walk into
the darkness

where there is
no light

trust in My name
you’re not forsaken

rely on My
power and might.

I am secure even in times of darkness.

“Is My hand shortened at all that it cannot redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? Who among you fears the LORD? Who obeys the voice of His servant? Who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD and rely upon His God.” Isaiah 50:2,10 NKJV

New Things

 

A bruised reed
I will not break

the blind
I will not leave

I will make
the darkness light

new things for you
to see.

Jesus establishes new things for me.

“A bruised reed He will not break. Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them. I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things I will do for them, and not forsake them.” Isaiah 42:3,9,16 NKJV

Light Giver

 

I give light to you
in the darkness
when you’re bullied by death’s
shadow

My tender mercy
guiding your feet
onto the path where peace
ever flows.

A laid down life has light in the darkness.

“For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways. . .To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:76,79 NKJV

Steadfast

 

Your heart will
remain steadfast
as you
trust in Me

your Light
who arises
always helping
you to see.

A laid down life has a Light in the darkness.

“Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness. His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established.” Psalm 112:4,7,8 NKJV

With You

 

If you find yourself
in darkness
and swallowed up
by it

there is no place
I cannot be
so I am with
you yet.

A laid down life is not alone in times of depression.

“Lord, I have called daily upon You; I have stretched out my hands to You. I have been afflicted and ready to die from my youth up; I am distraught.” Psalm 88:9,15 NKJV

Unstable

 

The foundations of this world
are unstable
those who trust it
walk in the dark

but you are children
of the living God
shining lights who reveal
My heart.

“They do not know, nor do they understand; they walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are unstable.” Psalm 82:5 NKJV

When I Fall

“When I fall, I will arise,
When I sit in darkness,
The Lord will be a light to me.”   Micah 7:8 NKJV

When I fall and/or sit in darkness, the temptation is to think it is a permanent place.

Thank You, Jesus, for rising out of that dark tomb and reminding me that things aren’t always as they seem, because You are here.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Though I sit
in the darkness
it is Your light
I will yet see

and when I walk
through the valley
it’s under Your shadow
that I’ll be.

God bless you as you arise with Him today!

“The Night Shall Be Light”

“If I say, ‘Surely the darkness shall
fall on me,
Even the night shall be light about
me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide
from You,
But the night shines as the day,
The darkness and the light are both
alike to You.
‘ ”  Psalm 139:11-12

From Jesus’ darkest hours came our brightest hope.

Lord, help me to see You in the dark.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Divine Light

I wonder if the tomb
shown bright

once it was
sealed tight

and if my
darkest times

are really
the most divine.
