A Light Brighter than the Sun

A light is growing in this world,

Brighter than the sun.

So bright it will blind us for a time.

We will run in fear and panic,

For its light is an x ray of our souls

Where dark patches exposed,

We will bleed.

But this light is not here to burn us

Only to show us

Our sickness,

For it comes with the cure

That’s complete and whole,

Carried on the wings of Grace

And Mercy.

The light came once before

But we squinted and twisted its glare,

With glasses too shady

We distorted its truth

And dimmed it luminosity

To suite our view.

But this light is eternal

And returns once more to us

But brings with it

Others who carry the same torch

Of  deep and real Love.

They are all a well spring

Connected to the heart of God

And as these words reach this page,

Others follow the path

That illuminates their souls

And builds a tsunami

Of the like, never seen before.

That will crash over

The destruction we have already wrought.

We are a shattered picture of many loose threads

In painful tangles and knots

That only Great Love can undo.

So not just one greater-than- sun is coming

There are more on their way.

Because we have hit a wall of disaster

And God says no more.

The laws are in play,

As they always have been

Where Love rules supreme, however its seemed.

Know there is more to this scene

Than we care, or anticipate.

Because death has no power

It’s just big change:

On a wave of Love,

Calling us home ALL,

Ourselves to become lights brighter than the sun.

Our God wants a future of happiness for all

He has let us play freely,

But we’ve hit a wall

And the creatures of this earth need protecting

The innocent claimed.

There is hell,

But no damnation,

Only a ladder to climb

From the darkness,

To shadow,

And then into light.

For a time,

It will feel as if this ship is sinking

And we’re all on board.

But it’s a storm –

A strong wake up call.

Not a punishment:

A consequence of ‘lack of love’ in all.

A bumpy, cold road to start with

So unfamiliar it will be

We’ll need to perservere.

Until  we start to feel the warmth

A glimmer, than a shaft

Until we are immersed

In its glow: the light of the Way

Down on our knees,

“Not our way, Yours.”

This surrender is our freedom,

Our flight and our joy.

This surrender is true power

As we put down the heavy burdens

Of our sin –

To a future

As yet unknown

Til we radiate our souls

A scan of our potential,

To all we can be.

God has faith in His children

He knows who we are.

A light is growing, brighter than the sun,

It’s heat is upon us,

A burning fire of Love.

A light is coming, it’s almost here

If you listen you’ll hear its whisper

Turn into a song,

A choir of angels

Welcoming this One.

John 16:8: “When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment”

P.S. I love you

as high as the sky - gods love

This is just a short post following on from the one I wrote yesterday, “I want to do it my way, not God’s way.” I mentioned signs, synchronicities, God letting me know He is there for me… well today something happened.

Just to demonstrate how God works in our lives the day after I posted yesterday’s blog I decided to go to church. Occasionally I just feel I want to be with others that have some desire for God, to help me feel my own emotions about Him. Religions have some issues, but there are some sincere people searching for God and I find it humbling to see. So I went today and a very passionate sermon was preached and a number of things hit my heart:

  • Don’t ever give up ( so, so apt right now).
  • To get to the promise (the mountain top) you have to go through a process – there is no magic leap from A to Z, so to speak. In fact the process is what helps us grow, learn, build faith.
  • When you are in the valley ( the depths of your life/the difficult times) remember it is a place where seeds grow.
  • Remember that you are not just a number, you are not just nothing, you are a child of God and God wants you to bring what you have to give, what he made you to be.
  • He wants you to take action, he wants you to stand up as you are and offer to the world and every time you hold back being all that you can, you lose out, but so does the world, because every child of God has a reason for being, a song to sing that only they can give.

It was a emotional for me in that church and it felt like the pastor was looking right at me at times. I was so amazed and so grateful. God never gives up on us and seems to have faith in us, no matter what we do: faith in Her creation.

So tonight was just one wonderful example of God showing me He is there right behind me waiting for me to turn and look His way and surrender to His Love. Grace follows us everywhere.
