    Inspired by Ephesians 5:8 


    For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. *Ephesians 5:8*

    I use to walk with the crowds

    Where no one could be distinguished

    Everyone in pain

    Everyone giving a fake smile

    Nothing changed- no matter what you tried

    There was no escaping the darkness

    Or the loneliness

    I was so fed up with the same old thing

    The crying every night

    The guilt

    And in the midst of the chaos

    I heard God’s call

    He saved me

    Changed me

    Renewed me

    Made me a different person

    It may seem I walk alone

    But God walks with me everyday

    There is no more constant hurting

    Just tears of joy and gratefulness

    I shine while walking pass the crowd

    They notice the difference

    They notice the real smile

    The light that cannot be contained

    It’s enough to spark the light within them

    To give them hope for a

    Better tomorrow

    The Rock 


    I stand on this rock

    Looking out to the ocean

    The water is calm

    The sun lightly beams on me

    Through the clouds

    I hear You calling my name

    It quickly puts a smile on my face

    A warm feeling wraps around my heart

    And you begin to speak to me

    “Why have You been running from me?”

    Tears flow down my face

    Because it is sadly the truth

    Before I answer You say,

    “Don’t pull away from Me.  I want closeness

    And you need it, your heart yearns it

    Don’t deprive yourself from unimaginable happiness”

    How am I receiving something so beautiful?

    When I am undeserving

    All I seem to mutter is,

    “I need you, I don’t know why I keep running”

    I feel a slight breeze

    And in a whisper I hear,

    “You run because you don’t understand

    Lean on Me

    Trust in Me

    Only then you will understand

    That You were made for me

    And I’m intended for you

    To love

    To nurture

    To guide you right into my arms”

    In awe- I still remain

    Standing on the Rock

    Watching the calm waters

    No longer running

    But seeking Your presence once again

    Nothing 


    What did I have to offer?

    I had nothing but baggage

    Luggage full of nothingness

    That I carried for years

    I couldn’t bear the weight

    But I refused to let go

    It weighed me down

    Made me weary

    Until You came into my life

    You told me to give You my nothingness

    And You turned it into treasures

    How wonderful are You, God

    Just as You created everything out of nothing

    You took my life and made it into something worth living

    When all I had to offer You was merely nothing.
