Incandescence

candle

We shimmer shine, aglow within.
Oblivious that what we bring
Drives darkness out, the cursed thing.
And opens eyes and makes us sing.

A holy flame, this tiny spark
Stands vigil in the darkest hour
Humble wick with warming power
Lodestar to the dying day.

And when the wax is all consumed
This sacred fire will ever burn
True nature to the source return
And love ignite and light empower.

Isaiah 42:3 – A bruised reed He will not break And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice.

I’ll put this in the cue (still owe 2 responses on blogger awards!) Love this supportive community and the opportunities to let others shine!

Just lately, I’m amazed that in all God’s great glory, He allows humble vessels like me to hold His torch and expel the darkness. Not my power… and yet, a very real engagement of His πŸ™‚
