The Light of God


As I walk down the street
A homeless man sits, his light fading
Will no one help this man?
Is anyone going to rescue him?

I start running towards him
His light is getting dimmer and dimmer
I reach the man, but there is no light
I hit my knees and cry out

Why didn't I know sooner to help him?
Why did you have to let him die like that?


I start walking and hear gun blasts
I round the corner and see this lady
Laying her yard, bleeding and I wonder
Who is going to go help her?

As I run towards her
Her light fades out
I hit the ground next to her
As I start crying, I feel full of hate towards God

Why did it have to be her?
What about her family?
Why couldn't it have been me?

As I crumble to the ground with hate and rage
I start to feel this warmth of comfort
I hear this voice all around me
Do not fear for I am with you always.

Confused, I question this voice
Where were you for that old man?
Where were you for this lady?
If your here for me, why not them too?

I hear the voice again
I was with them too
They are both here with me now





Still confused and angry
Then why did you let them die?
The voice comes back, echoing all around me
It was their time to come home

Then I see a vision of me
My light is starting to fade
My light goes out
I snap back screaming, NOOOO!!!!

I can't go yet, I'm going to start a family
Some many things I want to do
Then I realize something
Give my whole life to God
Then I won't have to worry about those things

I fall to my knees and start crying
Pouring out my heart to God
Then I feel this wonderful warmth of comfort and peace

Realizing that I was missing something before
I now am made whole
I am filled with unspeakable joy

I awake in a cold sweat
Realizing what that dream was about
I get down on my knees
I get right with God

I share my dream with others
Trying to win their hearts to you God


Thank You God.
