Be the Light is a new poem I just wrote. Every day we hear on the news about school shootings, war, and crime. Everything seems so dark if we focus just on all the bad stuff around us.
However, Jesus tells us to Let our light shine in Matthew 5:14-16:
You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a basket, but on a candlestick. And it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.Matthew 5:14 MEV
It’s up to us to be the light to those around us. Take a look below to my most recent poem for inspiration.
Be The Light
Created by God Filled with His love Filled with His light Hidden by shadows, thorns and trials Weighed down by darkness It seeks to smother the light Not possible- Just remember your Creator Just remember your Savior Be the light as he is in the light Surrender to His voice Surrender to His love True unconditional love Is the light Don't fight the darkness Shine a light and dispel the darkness Be Jesus to a lost and dying world By Patricia Adderley
