Shine Your Light

Do you hear 
The voices speak of you
As too broken
And frail?

Too foolish
And shameful
My holy Word
To wield?

Cut down
Each step you take
As in My purposed Way
You walk.

Now still
My child
Feel My heart
Burn within.

Your blessed
Childlike soul
Your inmost being
Praises still.

Fearfully
And wonderfully
From the womb
Overshadowed.

My Word
In Spirit breath
Is flaming
You alive.

For, the foolish
Of this world
I have chosen
To shame the wise.

The weak
Of this world
I have chosen
To confound the strong.

Do not dim Your lamp
But shine it brightly
For all to glorify
My work in you.

I've created you
To unleash
My glory
And praise.

Trust Me
Child
You're spoken for
You're Mine.

I am your light
Your shield
Your glory and
The lifter of your head.

For, I am
Your portion
Your Rock
And Redeemer.

Arise and shine
You're sent
To shine your light
And break the night!

    Anna, this is so beautiful! This stanza really stood out to me:

    “Do not dim Your lamp
    But shine it brightly
    For all to glorify
    My work in you.”

    It’s so easy to think we aren’t “good enough” or someone else will do it better. But God made each of us for a purpose and we each have a unique part to play in shining His Light. And He will do it through us, even through our weakness. Blessings and love to you, dear friend! xoxo

      Amen! He will do it through us in our weakness, for His power is perfected in weakness. May we become less, so He can become ever more. Love and blessings to you too, precious friend xoxo
