With hot fresh tears flowing down her cheeks Sierra sat in front of the computer desk staring at the monitor screen. She searched for a ray of hope to get through another day of sadness.
Tucked inside the center of her emotions was a deep dark feeling of doom and despair. Her spiritual light was growing dimmer with each passing discouraging day.
Depressed anxious thoughts assailed her as she continued to look for something written that may encourage her somehow. The tears kept pouring out as she cried from her fruitless heart.
A few minutes later she found a blog site called “His Bright Light in the Shadows” and she began to read. The title of the blog drew her in. She needed His light to penetrate through the dark shadows of her life. The first article she saw seemed like a good place to start.
Let the Lord radiate your path for today and tonight
He will take you out of the shadows and into His light
Give Him all your burdens and darkness of your heart
Jesus will guide you and show you just where to start
Black clouds of uncertainty leave you feeling no hope
You stumble and fall as you slip down the deep slope
Into your valley suffocating in lonely dark despair
Jesus is asking you to let Him meet you right there
Inside of you is a light that over time has grown dim
Renewed you will be in your spirit by just seeking Him
He fully understands your honest heart's cry and the fears
Jesus wants to be your comforter throughout all of your years
He knows you are hurting deep inside of yourself and wants you to heal
For all your sorrows of yesterday and today Jesus knows how you feel
In Him you have a divine purpose and you are here for a special reason
The struggles and circumstances you face today exist for a time and a season
You are fearfully and wonderfully made and He knows all about you
He knows when you are happy or when you are feeling sad and blue
He is your bright light in the shadows of all your torment and pain
Let Jesus gently guide you and teach you how to dance in the rain
Sierra cried as she read the message held inside the article which seemed directed at how she had been feeling for so long now. She fell to her knees into God’s presence and cried out to Him. Unaware of how much time had passed when she finished, Sierra got up and went to get her Bible. It had been months since she had read it.
“You, LORD, are my lamp; the LORD turns my darkness into light.”
2 Samuel 22:29 NIV
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I like your article and the poem within it. A few suggestions would be to change may to might in the third paragraph. Plus right below there maybe change fruitless to despairing or something like that. Also at end where she is going to get the Bible change it into a more active sentence like-She ran to find her Bible. Just some small ideas to improve it a little.
