    31st May 2015 – I am the light

    31st May 2015 – I am the light

    31 May 2015

    Jesus, our Lord,
    It was a cold and frosty morning
    and the sun was hidden
    in the swirling mist.

    I caught glimpses of the sun
    beginning to burn the mist and frost away.

    I heard the sound of woodpeckers
    hammering in the trees,
    of honking geese
    flying overhead,
    and then I heard a cock crow.

    You said ‘I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness.’

    Jesus, I know you are there,
    but in the mists of my mind
    I often only find darkness,
    forgetting you,
    and denying you are there.

    Oh Jesus, come into the darkness,
    sweep it away
    with your brilliant light.
    Help me to feel the warmth of your love
    wrapped around me
    chasing the darkness away,
    so that I can walk in the light of your love
    all my days.

    Amen Jackie Smith
