His Lantern


If we wake with troubled or lonely hearts, we can remember right away that we are not alone; we can close our eyes and begin our day by envisioning the comfort of his light. No matter our situation, he promises to find us. 


God, I awake with anxiety.
My feelings are tossed
like the surface of a bottomless sea. 
Guide me to trust
that you are here.
Help me see the tiny speck of hope
on the bleak horizon.
There it is, your lantern
yellow rays of light
spilling across the waves.
Your love, headed my way.
Growing brighter and nearer.
Forever finding me.


There are so many lights in our lives, dispelling the dark. See if you can find them today: the lamps, the streetlights, the headlights, the stars. Look at how the sun moves east to west. Really look at how the darkness disappears.
