My darkness and my light.
I love the early morning sunrise with the birds singing, the dark night receding.
A new day has been born and for that I sing a new song!
In my meditation on this day I did ponder of the darkness of the many years I did wander.
It was a time of much pain and sorrow, no hope for tomorrow.
I loved the darkness for it hid my sin but not from the Lord who saw it from within.
One day his glorious light did shine upon my soul, his conviction of my evil fallen
nature led me to the only one who could make me whole.
Jesus said to me; “You are my friend and I will be with you to the end”.
Then my darkness did flee, never to return, now I know, salvation cannot be earned.
If you have a longing for light and pray for spiritual sight, you will find him, and know that you are his delight!
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” John 8:12 NLT.
