His Light Never Fades


A circle of light

Inside a shroud of fright

Dark shadowed clouds

Without a sound

They move to surround

To dampen hope

To snip that rope

The one anchoring us

Carrying us

Touching our cheeks

With tender mercy

Whispering the promise

He will never leave

Hope wins

Because Jesus took my shame and sin

Bearing the weight

Giving me new life, a clean slate

When darkness moves in

Claim out loud

To whom you belong

And it ain’t no dark cloud

Or demon or liar

We, you and I, belong to the One whose thoughts are Higher

Whose power is divine

Whose rhythms of breath and life

Are all around

Without a sound

Ants march with crumbs

A young man smiles as he remembers fun

Soft pink petals bloom

Robins hop about even though it seems too soon


more than we can possibly imagine

A breakthrough begins

Faith explodes in the heart

Of a 40 year old unbeliever, never taught from the start

A child counting years on a venitlator

Breathes without the machine, only by her Creator

What of these miracles?

His light, so bright, it’s painful

To our naked eye

His glory and angels up in heaven so high

Yet His light

Is power and life

Reaching every seeking soul

His presence … its essence

Makes you never want to let go


This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).

The unfolding of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple (Psalm 119:130)


Good afternoon, my dear poetry readers,

The photo in this post is mine. I took it while waiting to pick up my son from basketball practice yesterday. It got me thinking about the light of Jesus. Just like He never leaves, His light never leaves. Darkness does not have the last word on your life, friends. Jesus does, and He is the Light of the World.

Have a blessed rest of this weekend.

In Christ,

    Oh, may I keep my heart lifted to receive and focus on His promise. My thoughts were turned toward the light this week also, dear Julie. He is so good to confirm HIS promise to us! Love and Blessings to you!
