Our Darkness – Your Light

December 10th, 2012, snow, woods, trees, winter 010

I’ve seen the darkness all around.

I’ve felt its cold grip so abound,

In the streets and on TV

And in the schools for all to see.

*

I’ve heard the darkness in my home.

Sensed darkness in the loved ones gone.

In my day and in my dream,

On the news and in the street.

*

I’ve known the darkness in my sin.

I felt how darkness stirred within.

In my heart and deep inside.

T’was surely there – it could not hide.

*

Why did you come? You knew full well.

Why did You chose to come and dwell,

In our hearts and lives and still,

To love despite our darkened will?

*

You are our only hope today.

Your Light sends darkness on its way.

Your Light will set our hearts afire.

Your Light will fill our deep desire.

*

Thank You, Jesus, for your Light.

Help us to see our deep dark plight.

Help us to let You in this day.

So darkness flees and Light will stay.

*

John 1:5

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
