Let My Life Be a Light

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Sometimes you may feel your short life 
is just like the flickering glow of a candle
Surrounded by fierce winds and strife,
Dark clouds that would sweep you away in their trammel

Sometimes you may fear your small light
Does no good and helps no one lost in the dark night.
Feeling blue? Don't give up the fight.
Don't let Satan stifle the flame that must shine bright.

"Let your light so shine before men,
That they may glorify your Father in heaven."
Not all who hear will say "Amen!"
You may suffer persecution once and again.

But Jesus is your help and guide;
He will comfort your heart and strengthen your mind.
In Him you can always confide.
In worldly pleasures none can true happiness find:

To despair many've been driven,
But in paradise, the streets with gold are paven
Tell lost souls they've been forgiven,
For in Christ they can find the desired haven. 

Jesus said, "Ye are the light of the world.  A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."

My prayer today is, "Lord, let my life be a light.  Your mercy and grace has given me happiness in a world of darkness.  Give me strength to shine the light brightly for you.  You said if you are lifted up, you will draw all men unto you.  I love you Lord Jesus! Amen."


  1. Just beautiful. Praise the Lord for his tender mercies. Much love, Mama

  2. Amén. Dios es muy bueno para todos los que confían en él. Muchísimas gracias Mamá mía. :)

  3. Muy buenas palabras Betania, se ve que estas creciendo cada dia mas en el Señor,
    1 Corintios
    3:6 Yo planté, Apolos regó; pero el crecimiento lo ha dado Dios.
    3:7 Así que ni el que planta es algo, ni el que riega, sino Dios, que da el crecimiento.

  4. Verdad, Carlos, toda la gloria pertenece a Dios, porque sin Él no podemos hacer nada. Dios te bendiga!!

  5. Amen, Bethany!
