God’s Light Breaks Through

God’s Light Breaks Through

God’s Light Breaks Through 1920 1439 Gayl Wright

My heart is stubborn, weak and selfish,
in need of healing
I hold on to past hurts looking for
someone or something to blame
Discontentment reigns as I focus on
problems instead of solutions

Stress takes its toll causing
shoulder pain and stiffness
I long for a closer walk with God
yet I put off prayer time
A few words of Scripture read at night
are often easily forgotten

Why do I carry these burdens?
Where can I find peace and contentment?
Who can pierce the thickness of my heart?

God, with His Light of Truth
breaks through the gloom
as love like a rushing stream pours in
opening wide my heart
filling it with abundant mercy
forgiveness and healing

I loosen my grip relinquishing my hold
Stress levels decrease, my body relaxes
Chaos gradually gives way to peace and joy
Grace will sustain me wherever I go
My mouth overflows with praise to God
sharing His love in words, photos and art
