Sandpiper's Thoughts: Arise. Shine.

Original post at http://sandpipersthoughts.blogspot.com/2013/01/arise-shine.html

Your light has come.
The Glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

Do you see a world covered in darkness?
Do you cry as children are shot?
As they go hungry?
Do you weep over the lack of justice in the world?
Is your life surrounded by darkness?

The Lord will rise above you.
Open your hearts and see God's Glory.
Arise. Shine.
Your light has come.

The light of the Lord shines upon the world
Through you.
Within you.
In all that you do for God.
You are the light.

Nations shall come to your light.
Kings to its brightness.
Shine, and see the world transformed.
Arise. Shine.

Lift up your eyes and look around.
See the darkness scatter at God's light.
Children will come to the dawning.
Those who were scattered will join together.
Light upon light.
God's light shining.
Arise.  Shine.

In God there is no darkness at all.
In God, there is light.
In you, there is God's light.
The love of God will push back the darkness when you
Arise.  Shine.

Inspired by Isaiah 60:1-4
