Light vs Darkness

“Again, Jesus spoke to them, saying, ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.’” John 8:12

 Although the world seems dark,

 We know You’re at our side.

 Your presence in our hearts,

 Brings us back to life.

 Man may struggle. Man may stress

 When Your light cannot be found.

 We know Your way is always best.

 Satan cannot keep us down.

 Somehow, we seemed to forget

 The love You intended us to spread.

 When our focus is on what we can get,

 We ignore what You have said.

 Our happiness is in You;

 Though we seldom relinquish our control.

 If we believe Your word is true,

 Our testimony will be bold.

Forgive us, Lord, for we have faltered.

We looked the other way.

 We lay our sins at Your altar.

Revive us more each day.

We took a few wrong paths.

 Some refuse to embrace this truth.

 When, oh, when will we acknowledge

 The only real answer is You.

 We need light, but we chose darkness.

 Then, lament over what is lost.

 Reignite the spark within us.

 Light is always worth the cost!
