Luke 11: 33-36 New International Version

33 “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy,[g] your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy,[h] your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”

Stopped by a stranger

in the middle of the street

stating your light is bright

how wonderful and neat

Filling my eyes

with the beauty of the day

connecting with nature

touching flowers along the way

Filled with life

my heart beats

admiring the sun rise

warmth on my feet

Chasing away demons

who try to invade my thoughts

reminding them loudly

that through Jesus I have been bought

The Light shines

a beacon to come home

a reminder to all of us

we are not alone


May our inner light always shine in a way that brings praise and glory to You. May it always be a beacon to lead our brothers and sisters home.
