So often our lives are filled with darkness, fear and confusion and we cannot see there is hope. Jesus came as the light of the world, to draw us out of darkness and into his glorious light, to bring us hope and peace. He longs to draw you near. The choice is yours.

Pure Light

Beyond the darkness there is light
to brighten up the darkest night,
for when our lives are full of fear
Jesus longs to draw us near
and even though the shadows fall,
He’ll be there with light for all.
With His light He’ll show the way
into a brighter clearer day.

When we seek His light so pure,
our every step will grow more sure.
As we walk with Him each day,
He leads and guides us all the way.
So trust in Him and you will find
that Jesus gives you peace of mind,
for Jesus is the true pure light
and He can make your future bright.

Loved these lines, especially, "When we seek His light so pure,
our every step will grow more sure." How true, thanks for sharing.

Excellent form and great thoughts...I loved your poem...I love poetry for much is shared between the lines in spirit -- and the essence of the truth reaches the paper on which we express our souls...Keep writing because God has given you such a great gift of music in words...Juanita Pittman-Brown

Marcell - A very good poem, I love how you capsulized a life that leans into the Holy Spirit to be guided and led. Seeking evidence of Christ working in your life leads you closer to Him and makes you more sensitive to His teachings and guidance. And the peace...oh so true. Thank you.
