Part 3: Chapter 4 – Day 3: The Light Still Shines

Welcome to Day 3 of Part 3‘s Chapter 4 of Arise and Shine. Today, Bettie is bringing forward our 3rd free will offering for Chapter 4: The Golden Lampstand- The Lamb of GodIn a poem she expresses the gift God’s light has been in her life. She speaks of the the Golden Lampstand’s (the Lamb of God’s) power to protect, comfort and transform us through the light of His Word in our midst, as He turns the darkness into light before us. And she invites us into a time of prayer.

THE LIGHT STILL SHINES

There are those who say the darkness is silent
I do not believe it to be so
I have heard the voices shouting
And I have heard the demons screaming
No, the darkness is loud, too loud, as my painful ears burn.

There are those who say the Light is uncomfortable
I do not believe it to be so
I have felt the warmth rising
And I have tasted the golden glowing
No, the Light is somehow soothing, a compress on my wounds.

There are those who say there is no way out of the darkness
There are those who say the cliffs of fear are too high for climbing
There are those who say the pits of despair lie too low for uncovering
There are those who say the Light would never venture that far.

But I have heard of another who speaks only TRUTH for the hearing
I believe what He says to be true
I have longed for Light shining
And I have sung the words honestly rising
Yes, His Ways point to Heaven, where LIGHT always shines.

Yes, I have heard of another who brings Light in the darkest of days
I believe what He says to be true
I have heard of Messiah’s coming
And I have lifted my dark to His shining
Yes, His candle of Love broke the darkness in me.

Dear Lord Jesus, We exalt You and Your Glorious name. You have shined your light on us, when we were in the darkness of our sins. Oh, precious Lamb of God, may we let You shine Your light into every hidden corner and crevice of our heart. Illuminate those areas which need Your transforming grace. We ask all of this in Your great name Jesus. Amen.
