Penetrating Darkness

This is my heart this morning.  It is heavy with the state of relationships, of our nation and of our world.  Jesus, You are my always hope.


We are desperate for You

and for Your light, Lord


This world feels dark

and heavy

and cold


Everyone believes themselves

to be right

and entitled

and stubborn


We so need Your graciousness

in our hearts, God


We long for Light


If we could


for Light,

we would


For darkness

threatens to overtake


But there You are

in the stillness leading

us to the banks of calm

and peace


To the waters of Your sweet love


Such a sweet Love


And the darkness that threatens

to overtake us


Is washed with the water

of Light


And eyes are awake once again

to goodness

and blessings

and most of all


to You


The Light in the darkness


The hope of all nations


The hope for each individual

that thirsts for Light


I love Your Light, my precious Jesus,

I love Your Light


– Susie Stewart


I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.

– John 8:12 (AMP)


A light that thrives in the depths of darkness, blazes through murky bottoms. It cannot and will not be quenched.

– John 1:5 (VOICE)


For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord. So live as people of light!

– Ephesians 5:8 (NLT)


Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.

– Psalm 119:105 (NLT)


The unfolding of Your [glorious] words give light; Their unfolding gives understanding to the simple (childlike).

– Psalm 119:130 (AMP)
