A Light

 

When I fall
by Your grace
I will arise
again

and when darkness comes
You are my light
shining ever
within.

**********

You are with me and bring me light and righteousness.

**********

“Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; when I fall, I will arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me.”

Micah 7:8 NKJV

As Dear Children

 

Let the words
from my mouth

be simply
thankful ones

as an imitator
of God

lighted by
His Son.

**********

I can imitate You, for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”

“But fornication and all uncleaness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;”

“neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.”

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”

Ephesians 5:1,3,4,8. NKJV

The Hidden Things

 

You will come
and bring to light

the hidden things
of darkness

revealing counsels
of the hearts

being the One
who praises.

**********

You are with me and know me.

**********

“For I know nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord.”

“Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts; and then each one’s praise will come from God.”

1 Corinthians 4:4,5 NKJV

High Time

 

Now is the time
to awaken

to be clothed in our Lord
Jesus Christ

the night is far spent
and the day is at hand

to put on His armor
of light .

*********

You are with me and clothe me in light.

*********

“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.”

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.”

“But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”

I Stand

 

Only by Your help
do I stand

and am able to
give witness

that You suffered
then rose from the dead

bringing light into
our darkness.

********

You establish my standing.

*********

“Therefore, having obtained help from God, to this day I stand, witnessing both to small and great, saying no other things than those which the prophets and Moses said would come – that the Christ would suffer, that He would be the first to rise from the dead, and would proclaim light to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.” Acts 26:22,23 NKJV

A Great Light

 

Help has come
we have a Savior

for unto us
Christ was born

bringing light to
our current darkness

and forever hope
each new dawn.

*********

You establish light in our darkness.

*********

“The people who walk in darkness
will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness,
a light will shine . . .”

“For a child is born to us,
a son is given.
The government will be on his shoulders.
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
His government and its peace
will never end.
He will rule with fairness and justice from the
throne of His ancestor David for all eternity.
The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven’s
Armies
will make this happen!”

Isaiah 9:2, 6-7

Life Begins As A Love Story

 

You hover
over the water

speaking forth light
land and beasts

but gather together
in loving communion

to create us
from Your Trinity.

**********

You establish us by Your love.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.
Then God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then He separated the light from the darkness. God called the light ‘day’ and the darkness ‘night’ . . .
God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.’ “

“So God created human beings in His own image.
In the image of God He created them;
male and female He created them.”

Genesis 1:1-5,26-27

The Light Is With You

 

I believe
in You

and walk
in Your light

receiving
Your words

for they
are life.

You establish light to walk in.

“A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light . . .While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light. For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His command is everlasting life.” John 12:35,36,49,50

Doing Truth

 

You do the truth
in the light

it simply can’t
be hid

for what you do
is done in God

and there’s no shadow
in Him.

You establish how I do truth.

“But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen; that they have been done in God.” John 3:21 NKJV

All Things

 

In You and through You
and by You

all things
we’re made

and Your life
is the light inside of me

that grows brighter
day by day.

You establish the light of life.

“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and he life was the light of men.” John 1:3,4 NKJV
