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

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

Inscribed

 

I’ve been given as
a covenant to you

even to the ends
of the earth

and your name’s inscribed
on My hands

that you may never
doubt your worth.

My name is accepted because of You, Jesus. ( One of the definitions of establish is to cause to be accepted .)

“I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles, that You should be My salvation to the ends of the earth . I will preserve You and give You as a covenant to the people . . .that You may say to the prisoners, ‘Go forth, ‘ to those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’ Sing, O heavens! Be joyful, O earth! And break out in singing, O mountains! For the Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy on His afflicted. Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands . . .” Isaiah 49:6,8,9,13,15,16. 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
